The New Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Uses the Same Supercharger as the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

The New Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Uses the Same Supercharger as the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Put down your fists; it's not as bad as it sounds.

At the 2017 Battle Creek Speedfest, we see a C6 Corvette ZR 1 going up against a C7 Corvette Z06 in a half mile drag race . This event was in conjunction with the 2017 Battle Creek Field of Flight air show and Balloon 1000HP Shelby GT 500 vs the WORLD + 870HP ZR 1 vs Ford GT vs 1000HP Evo!

More horsepower doesn't matter when you can't put it to the ground.

The Dragtimes team is back with more action from the Wannagofast half-mile event held in Florida this past January. Cameras were rolling in all kinds of cars for that day, and thus far we’ve seen everything from the McLaren 720S to modified Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and yes, the Ford GT. This time around the GT is back, and its competition is a lightly modified 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Specifically, the car has a free-flowing exhaust, which can make a surprisingly large difference on a supercharged engine. The Ford GT is bone stock.

On paper, then, the mighty ZR1 should have the advantage. It belts out 755 horsepower (563 kilowatts) in stock trim, though with the exhaust changes it’s surely putting out more than that. The GT makes 647 hp (482 kW) from its twin-turbo V6, and its seven-speed gearbox has one less cog than the ‘Vette’s eight-speed auto. The Corvette is also 200 pounds heavier, but its 100-plus hp advantage should more than offset the weight difference.


As is often the case, bench racing doesn’t guarantee results in the real world. The cars made two half-mile sprints, and we won’t even try to sugarcoat the first run. The GT enters its low-drag mode, and with help from launch control the Blue Oval supercar blasts away from the traction-limited Corvette like scalded alien spacecraft. Later on, we learn just how much trouble the Corvette had getting that power down – the first few gears were all but useless.

Ford GT Drag Races Aventador In A Quarter-Mile Showdown The cars have similar performance on paper, and the racing action doesn't disappoint. A fresh video is out from our friends at DragTimes, and we’re stoked to share it. We see lots of drag racing action, but a new Ford GT lining up against a Lamborghini Aventador isn’t your typical Friday night test-and-tune contest. That’s exactly the kind of action we’re treated to this time around. Actually, there’s an entire fleet of awesome supercars on hand, not the least of which being a McLaren 720S and a Lamborghini Huracan.

Watch a Ford GT take on a 2019 Corvette ZR 1 in drag race action at Wannagofast. In our first race , we see the GT gearing up by getting into V-Max mode. This lowers the car 2 inches and prevents the rear wing But keep in mind, the ZR 1 is a car that costs a fraction of the GT ’s half -a-million price tag.

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR 1 is the big daddy in the range, with 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque being This particular model features the quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission which is useful in a drag race as well as a freer-flowing exhaust system that may have liberated a few extra ponies too.

The second run, however, was far closer. Instead of just launching from a stop, the drivers agreed to do a short roll out with a launch from 40 mph. There were still traction issues, but as the video shows, the competition was much more exciting.

As per usual, we’ll the video tell the story of how this Ford-versus-Chevy battle concluded.
