The Z06 also makes quick work of an Audi R8, but gets beat to the quarter-mile by a 215-hp Ducati.

The Corvette Z06 wasn’t designed to be a drag racer, but with 670 hp and ultra-sticky tires, there’s no arguing its straight-line pedigree. It’s abundantly clear just how capable the newest C8 can be in Hagerty’s newest head-to-head drag racing video, where the Z06 smokes a 911 GT3 and an Audi R8 in the quarter-mile.

Hagerty brought these three cars together simply because they’re all naturally aspirated and keep their engines behind the driver. Host (and former R&T staffer) Jason Cammisa wanted to see just how today’s most impressive N/A supercars compare in a straight-up drag. The results are predictable but exciting to watch.

The Z06 takes a dominant victory, a result of its optimal power-to-weight ratio. It’s able to get to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds, onto a quarter-mile time of 10.5 seconds at 131 mph. The Porsche is over five car lengths behind, knocking out a 0-60 time of 2.7 seconds before clicking off the quarter-mile at 10.9 seconds at 129 mph.

The Audi rounds out the group with a 3.2-second 0-60 and an 11.4-second quarter-mile at 125 mph. Cammisa admits the base convertible version probably wasn’t the best choice for this race, and predicts the coupe would’ve been closer to the GT3 had Audi been able to get them a car in time.

The second race Cammisa runs in the video also helps add some perspective, running the Z06 against a 215-hp Ducati Panigale V4 SP2 ridden by MotoAmerica Supersport Champion Josh Herrin. The bike is able to walk away from the Z06, putting up a sub-10-second quarter-mile. The lesson here? Motorcycles are a different breed.
