It’s only fair to witness the drag race of two vehicles that come from opposite ends of the world and utilize completely different technology, right? You will find such a pair in the new Corvette Stingray and BMW i8, which The Fast Lane Car take to a closed road for a drag race.
At one end you have American’s pride with 455-horsepower and 460-lb-ft of torque and the other you have Bavaria’s finest hybrid with a 231-horsepower engine and 131-horsepower electric motor. The Stingray runs 0-60 mph in nearly 3.9 seconds while the BMW i8 is said to hit 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, give or take a tenth. See how they fair in the video below and be sure to post your objections in the comments below. Enjoy!
