The 2015 Corvette Z06 is the fastest road-going Chevrolet ever built. Its 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 makes 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. It weighs in at just 3,524 pounds. It’s a supercar in every sense of the word.
The McLaren P1 on the other hand, is the wildest-looking, fastest, most powerful coupe to ever roll off the British automaker’s factory floor. Its 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8/electric motor combo delivers 903 hp. It weighs a good bit less than the Z06 too, at 3,075 pounds.
If there exists a delineation between super and hyper, it’s visually explained in this video, shot from the Corvette’s PDR. The Corvette can catch up to the P1 in turns, but when they both get back on the throttle during exit, the P1 just leaves it in the dust. The Circuit of the Americas is a great track for this epic battle.
