Nissan GT-R Takes On Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
At The News Wheel, we regularly drool over the best cars each brand has to offer. However, we usually do not get to see them go head to head. This month we were given a great treat: a drag race between the Nissan GT-R and the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Which vehicle do you think will win the race?

To be fair, before we let you place your bets, you should know that both cars have been modified. The Corvette was beefed up with available factory modifications, while the Nissan GT-R has had a few tweaks from its owner, such as track-ready tires. Both of these cars were also drag racing on a dedicated track, not on an open road like some of these videos we stumble across. It should go without saying, though, that officially The News Wheel does not condone drag racing on the street, and safety should always be taken into consideration when preparing for a legal race.
Now that you have made your final decision as to which car you’re picking, take a look at the video of the race below and see how your car did.
As you can see, the Nissan GT-R managed to bring home the win, while the Corvette was forced to roll away in shame. The Nissan GT-R only took 10.16 seconds to complete a quarter mile, where as the ‘Vette took 11.11 seconds. The Corvette reached a top speed of 130.94 mph, with the Nissan GT-R managed to pull ahead at 134.93 mph.
Many car enthusiasts will pick apart this race and compare each ride’s modifications. We’re content to let this plucky Nissan GT-R bask in the glory of its victory.
