Usually, when we compare cars with similar power figures, the matchup is pretty close. Now, a video of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the McLaren Artura drag racing has surfaced online.

Race Results

While both cars start on an equal footing, initially the Corvette appears to get a good start and looks like it will pull away from the McLaren. However, about half way in the race, the McLaren starts pulling ahead. The Corvette Z06 meanwhile is unable to keep up with the Artura and eventually falls behind by almost 2 car lengths.

Further, the naturally-aspirated V8 engine is combined with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This gearbox sends power to the rear wheels. Chevrolet claims the new Z06 will sprint from 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds. It can reach a top speed of 195 mph.
