Watch A Corvette ZR1 Chase A Camaro ZL1 At The Circuit Of The Americas: Video

Follow Viknesh

On paper, the performance of the latest Corvette ZR1 and the Camaro ZL1 may be wide apart, but on the track, as you’ll see in this video, that gap starts to get a little hazy.

Taken at a recent track event at Austin’s Circuit of the Americas, this video, uploaded by the guys at High Tech Corvette, shows a Corvette ZR1 in hot pursuit of a Camaro ZL1.

We get a cockpit view of the chase from inside the Corvette ZR1, which means we also get to hear the sweet sounds of its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine.

The driver of the Camaro does a great job keeping his distance from the Corvette, but as the track narrows and the two cars face a series of tight turns, the added power of the Corvette helps its driver overtake.

While both cars feature supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engines, the Corvette ZR1’s LS9 unit benefits from a healthier 638 horsepower and 604 pound-feet of torque versus the 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque of the Camaro ZL1’s LSA.

At just over 3,400 pounds, the Corvette ZR1 is also considerably lighter than the Camaro ZL1’s relatively porky 3,750-pound curb mass.

Nevertheless, it's still great to see the two cars duke it out.
