A few days ago, we saw this 700 HP red Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe beat a 900 HP C6 Corvette ZR1 to the 1/4 mile marker, so naturally it was time for the “Americans” to fight back.
By the way, here’s that particular race in case you missed it. And yes, the Corvette did struggle for grip. A lot, actually.
Still, winning is winning, right? And that’s exactly what the less powerful Merc did. Now, we’ve got the same C63, only this time we see it run against a less powerful ZR1 – less powerful than the 900 HP one that is.
This particular ZR1 packs 720 HP and it warms up by chewing on a stock SLS AMG before getting ready to nail its main course, the sneaky fast 700 HP C63 Coupe. Naturally, the 570 PS SLS AMG didn’t stand much of a chance, even though it got off to a much better start.
Also, this ZR1 didn’t struggle with putting its power down, especially up against the C63 (who actually did have a bad start). In fact, if we compare times between this run and the one from the previous video, we noticed that the C63 was about a full second slower.
What that means is that it would have probably won this race, but these are result oriented events, not speculative.
We definitely need to see a rematch!
