The Corvette and the Mustang are two of the most recognized nameplates in the automotive industry with a long and rich history. Even though, technically, they’re different rides made for different folks, at the end of the day, they’re both sports cars built to be fast.
All that said, it comes to no surprise that car enthusiasts are racing the two models against each other, in this case, the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 and the 2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, both in bone stock form.
Before we let you go and see how the race went, allow us to refresh your memory on the cars’ specifications:
– The Corvette C7 Z51 is priced from $54,795 and sports a new 6.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 pumping out 455HP (339 kW or 461PS) and 460 lb-ft (624 Nm) of torque.
– The Mustang Shelby GT500 starts from $54,800 and is powered by a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 producing 662hp (494 kW or 671PS) 631 lb-ft (855 Nm) of torque.
