In this insanely well produced video by Hagerty on YouTube you can see the all new 2024 C8 Corvette Eray hybrid electric corvette smash the Ferrari F8 and Lamborghini Huracan Evo in the quarter mile.
To be fair you can see the Ferrari F8 coming on strong after the all wheel hybrid electric launch on the Corvette ERay makes it dominate from the start. Also, Lamborghini didn’t want to provide a car for the video so they were only able to use a RWD Lamborghini Huracan EVO vs the Corvette Eray instead of an All Wheel Drive Huracan EVO.
We recently posted the results of an All Wheel Drive Lamborghini Huracan Evo vs a Convertible C8 Corvette Z06 but not of the Eray yet.
Corvette E-Ray vs Ferrari F8 vs Lamborghini Huracan EVO
In this world exclusive, we drag race the first-ever hybrid, all-wheel-drive Corvette E-Ray against two Italian Supercars: the Ferrari F8 and Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD.
Is the 2024 Corvette E-Ray quicker than the 2023 Corvette Z06? We explore that using numbers generated from our last episode, where the Z06 beat a Porsche 911 GT3 (992), an Audi R8 V10 Performance, and almost kept up with a Ducati Panigale V4 SP2. Using his signature time-freeze technique, veteran automotive journalist Jason Cammisa shows us the outcome of the race and explains how it happened by walking back through slow-mo time at the finish line. The Corvette E-Ray combines the Z06’s wide body with the base Stingray’s 6.2-liter LS2 V-8 and a front-mounted, 160-hp electric motor. Launches are now wheelspin-free and no-drama as the E-Ray rockets from 0-60 in just 2.4 seconds — making this the quickest Corvette in history. And, at 3925 lb, the heaviest. But also the first AWD Corvette and the first-ever hybrid Corvette.
C8 Corvette ZR1 & C8 Corvette Zora
In the video they give a hint about Chevrolet possibly adding twin turbos to the C8 Corvette Z06 to make the C8 Corvette Zr1. There is also speculation General Motors and Chevrolet are going to add Twin Turbos to the C8 Corvette Z06 flatplane crank engine and then add the hybrid electric motor for the C8 Corvette Zora to get into the 900-1000 HP territory to take on the Tesla Model S Plaid and super cars like the McLaren 765 LT.
