C8 Corvette Z06 Faces Off A Tesla Cybertruck In A Drag Race

As electric vehicles continued to rise in prominence within the automotive industry, the pickup truck market stood as the final segment untouched by battery-powered alternatives. However, the arrival of models like the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, Hummer EV, and most recently, the Tesla Cybertruck, signaled a shift in the landscape, extending electric vehicle dominance across all segments.

Recently, Throttle House, the Canadian YouTube channel hosted by James and Thomas, organized a drag race featuring the Cybertruck and mighty C8 Corvette Z06 to see just how far electric cars have come against one of the highest-rated ICE vehicles on the market today.

The Corvette Z06 boasts exceptional performance, driven by a V8 engine generating 670 horsepower and 460 lb ft of torque. Its rear-wheel-drive configuration provides thrilling speed and agile handling, earning it praise from enthusiasts. Meanwhile, the Tesla Cybertruck, or Cyberbeast, features a powerful electric motor delivering 845 horsepower to all four wheels, enabling rapid acceleration and unique styling that garners attention on the road.

With 670 horsepower and 460 lb ft of torque to the rear wheels, can the Z06 fend off the much heavier 845 horsepower Cybertruck with all-wheel drive? Watch the video to find out!
