Throttle House gives us another epic battle between two American rivals: the Corvette and Dodge Demon. What they have for us today is an all out drag race action between a European-inspired supercar which is the C8 Corvette Z06 and the classic American muscle, the Dodge Demon.
The Dodge Demon is a beast. It’s motivated by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that generates 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, on the other hand, has 670 horsepower coming out of its naturally aspirated V8 engine. It’s very clear that the Dodge Demon has the advantage when it comes to raw power, but it is definitely heavier than the Z06 as it tips the scales at 4,280 lbs. against the 3,434 lbs. of the Corvette.
It’ll be interesting to see which of these two American monsters crosses the finish line first as they are pitted against each other in a series of drag races at the Willow Springs Raceway in California.
