If you have ever seen the Blue Angels in action at an airshow, then you know just how awesome they are. Better yet, if you have ever been lucky enough to strap in the cockpit of an F/A-18 Hornet, then you really can contest to how much of a bad-assed jet it really is. The new Corvette ZR1 is probably one of the closest things you can experience on land similar to a jet fighter (excluding the Bugatti Veyron of course). MotorTrend takes the ZR1 (Blue Devil) out against a Blue Angel F/A-18 Hornet for a drag race to 100mph just to see who would really win. Remember, the ZR1 can reach 60mph from a standstill in 3.3 second in part due to its 638 horsepower Supercharged V8. On the other hand, the F/A-18 Hornet packs in over 32,000 lbs of thrust making it capable of mach 1.8 (1,400mph). Check out the video below and enjoy!
