C8 Corvette vs Hellcat Durango DRAG RACE Comparison (VIDEO)

Check out this Drag Race video comparison review of the C8 Corvette vs. a Hellcat Dodge Durango from Hennessey Performance.

The 2021 Dodge Durango with 6.2L Hellcat V8 has arrived at Hennessey! This example is soon to be the first to receive our HPE1000 performance upgrade. But first, we were curious how Dodge’s AWD supercharged family hauler would compare to Chevrolet’s mid-engine C8 Corvette. We headed to the Pennzoil Proving Ground for answers.

2001 C5 Z06 vs 2020 C8 Corvette

Check out this video by GT Drummer Dude on YouTube of the Omega Motorsport NoFlyZone ARIZONA Event at the Gila Bend Municipal Airport.

Per his description:
The Z06 had a passenger and the C8 did not. This was my slowest pass of the day at 136.5 mph. My fastest pass was 144.6 mph and the fastest pass of this stock C8 was 144 mph. After 2 or 3 passes I was doing 141-144 mph the rest of the day, exactly the same as this C8 was doing all day. The fastest pass of another C8 with headers and exhaust was 148 mph. I just wish the only video I got against a C8 wasn’t my slowest pass of the day by 8 whole mph… With no passenger in my later runs I would have been door to door with this guy all the way down the track. The 1/2 mile trap speeds tell the tale though- the C8 is no faster than a stock C5Z with a good driver.

C8 Corvette Drag Race vs Hellcat and a Tuned Toyota Supra!

Check out this video from Corvette Direct where he takes his C8 Corvette to the track to drag race two hellcats and a brand new 2020 Supra that had a tune, downpipe, and exhaust.

The C8 Corvette consistently ran low 11s and his C8 Corvette is stock other than Kooks header and Green Cats where he only gained about 5 horsepower anyway and mainly did it for the sound.
