My son said he saw a youtube video yesterday of a Ford GT beating a ZR-1 in a race. I don't know much about the Ford, but I am skeptical. Anyone know how the performance of those two cars matches up??:huh:
I thought the LS9 was a supercharged version of the 6.2L. :huh: If the Ford is truly a mid-11 sec. 1/4 mile, it shouldn't be able to touch the ZR1 which I think is well into the 10's isn't it?I've been in love with the GT 40 since they were light blue and orange colored. I would still take one over a ZR1....any day. Quite possible the ZR1 is a bit faster but the GT40 is ten year old technology and it's only 5.4 Liters vs 7 liters and they're still real close. It is a timeless design that looks as good now as it did in 1966. Just think....nearly 50 years old and it still looks like a fresh new design. Not many vehicles can make that claim. A 1966 Vette while still a classic, is dated in appearance. It looks like an old classic. The Ford GT (GT40) will never look old.
I've owned a Lotus Europa JPS for years and I'm used to crawling into and falling out of a low car.:laughing: I think the Ford GT is a lot bigger than my Lotus was. I want one.
OH really? Why does GM put Launch Control on these cars?This video isn't really a good comparison. No times are shown so we have no idea where either car is. And that GT isn't stock.
Realistically, both are probably fairly equal in the 1/4 mile + or - a few tenths, but that isn't what either car was built for.
I suppose it's possible I have not kept my knowledge up to date but the white Corvette in the video is not a ZR-1. It's a convertible which last I recall makes that impossible.OK, obviously the race was won at the start. Was that because the Ford gets the power to the ground better or because the Ford driver was much more skilled than the Vette driver? :huh:

That's what I get for watching the video on my phone the first time. I was sure it was a convertible, but nope. Upon further review on a larger screen, it is a ZR-1. My bad.Sure about that? Even the Grand Sport has the wrong gills.
