Even if this kind of video is increasing on the web, it is still rare to see a brand new Corvette face off against European supercars whose reputation is well established. But sometimes it happens, the video proof.
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 quickly established itself as a supercar killer given its performance and price. But now she is opposed to a serious competitor. In this video, the "Vette" faces the Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 through several events. Keep in mind that this Huracan is an older copy of the Italian supercar, it is not the very last Huracan RWD.
As the name suggests, the LP 580-2 is a rear-wheel drive version of the Italian supercar. Under its hood it hides the same atmospheric 5.2-liter V10 but which is satisfied with 580 horsepower and 540 Nm of torque. It is the propulsion architecture that saved 33 kg compared to the standard model. Lambo indicates that it is able to shoot down from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.4 seconds and that the top speed is 320 km / h.
A great opponent for the Corvette?
For its part, the Corvette C8 has a 6.2-liter V8 of 500 horsepower and 637 Nm of maximum torque. On paper it is even slightly faster than the Lambo to spray 0 to 100: only 3.0 seconds. Its maximum speed, however, is slightly lower since it peaks "only at 312 km / h".
Agility course, straight-line acceleration and lap, the comparison looks promising and the result may surprise you.
