Can A Lucid Air Beat The 2023 Corvette Z06 Beat In Edmunds’ U-Drag Race?
The Edmunds team is pitting the 2023 Corvette Z06 against the Lucid Air Grand Touring in a head-to-head battle. The test includes a standing quarter mile, a braking and high-speed cornering test, and a rolling quarter.
The Lucid Air Grand Touring is a luxury electric sedan powered by a pair of electric motors that drive all four wheels. In GT trim, those motors combine to make 819 HP and 885 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2023 Corvette Z06, on the other hand, only makes 670 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque from its naturally aspirated V8 engine.
The Corvette Z06 is lighter though at 3,681 pounds and equipped with the aero, grip, and carbon fiber of the Z07 package, giving it a weight-to-power ratio of just 5.49 lbs. per horsepower as compared to the Lucid Air’s weight-to-power ratio of 6.38 lbs per horsepower.
With that said, can the Lucid’s instantaneous electric torque enough to beat the Z06? Watch the video to find out!
