Corvette Z06 chases a McLaren P1 at COTA

February 17th, 2015

Z06-chases-McLaren-P1-COTATake a look at a new Corvette Z06 trying to chase down a McLaren P1 at the Circuit of the Americas track in Austin, Texas.  It’s pretty amazing to watch the McLaren P1 with it’s 903HP 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo along with a electric motor absolutely leave the Z06 like it’s standing still on the straights.

During a few moments in the video the Corvette gets a bit too close for comfort to the $1.2M hyper car.  We would certainly be giving the P1 it’s space and respect for being on the track with ‘normal’ cars.

The video was taken from the Corvette’s onboard data recorder showing speed, G forces, position on the track, steering angle and more.
