Which would you bet money on in a drag race? A Mustang GT500 or a Corvette Z06?
It’s a close call. The pony packs a 5.8 L supercharged V8 cranking out 662 hp and 631 lb-ft of torque.
On the other hand, the ‘Vette has a supercharged 6.2L V8 producing 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
At the end of the quarter mile, there can be only one victor. And on this warm summer night, the Ford Mustang GT500 took the win.
Even after a bad start from the GT500, the supercharged Shelby managed to take the lead after second gear came around, and by the time third was up, it was all over for the Chevrolet Corvette. After seeing the start, there was no way that Mustang should’ve won, but the board doesn’t lie folks.
