Watch A C8 Corvette Beat A 850HP NASCAR Cup Car In A Drag Race

Hoonigan is back with another exciting drag race between a modified NASCAR stock car featuring a powerful 2JZ engine and a 2021 Corvette C8.

Lining up against this Corvette is a unique 2010 NASCAR Cup Car. This extraordinary vehicle has been upgraded with a powerful 2JZ engine, generating a staggering 850 horsepower for this epic race. Under the hood lies a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine, mated to a four-speed transmission, ensuring exhilarating performance.

Challenging the mighty NASCAR racer is the 2021 Corvette C8, a marvel of engineering and design. With its 6.2-liter engine, the Corvette remains true to the GM small block tradition, delivering substantial low-end power. Pushing out 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through an eight-speed Tremec dual-clutch transmission, the Corvette faces a noticeable power deficit in this matchup.

However, you should watch the video if you want to see just how capable the stock C8 Corvette with properly calibrated launch control against a more powerful and lighter opponent.
