U.S.A. versus Italy – Huracan versus Corvette ZR1 Track Hits

September 30th, 2020

The theme of this video is roll racing – on the track this time. No traffic to interfere and no law enforcement to worry about, just open asphalt and sheer horsepower. The cars are top-shelf and well suited for roll racing.

In this shootout between America and Italy, each country is well represented. America by the legendary Chevrolet (C6) Corvette ZR1 and Italy by the iconic Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4. While the Corvette is the flagship of the Chevy lineup, the Huracan is an entry level cruiser for Lamborghini.

The rear-wheel drive Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 weighs 3,519-pounds. It is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that can produce 638hp and 604 lb.-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed manual. The ‘Vette can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9-seconds and has a top speed (electronically controlled) of 205 mph.

On the other hand, the all-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 tips the scale at 3,468-pounds. Under the hood is a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine capable of churning out 552hp and 398 lb.-ft. of torque. The Huracan can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7-seconds and has an electronically controlled top speed of 202 mph.

From a dig, this is a real toss-up. The Corvette is more powerful, but the Lambo is lighter and has all-wheel drive. Thing is that today’s race is not from a dig. This is roll racing, and that changes everything. Who will have the advantage and win this battle of supercars? Check out the video to find out.
