Let us take a look at the current Corvette ZR1 specs; a car comparable to the more expensive supercar, the Corvette Zora ZR1 is one of the more powerful cars that you can get your hands in. However, the last version was the 2013 so it will be more outdated. But you do not underestimate a Zora; it has 638 horsepower and 604 pound feet of torque. It might be old, but this car still gets some heat.

The Hellcat, however, is still supported and got the 2016 version as the current model, so it will be sporting a much higher tech than the latest Zora ZR1. Let see what the 2016 Hellcat has to offer, a supercharged premium V8 engine that is capable to provide an astonishing 707 horsepower and 650 pound feet of torque.

There was a race recently happening between these two brands; a 2011 Zora ZR1; has the same engine as the 2013 and a 2015 Hellcat. Looking at the specs alone, you would expect that the Hellcat would win, wouldn’t you? Well, it did win, but the Zora ZR1 driver is very late at the start. So although the Hellcat won that particular Corvette ZR1 vs Hellcat race, the result is still inconclusive due to the ZR1 driver being caught sleeping at the start of the race.
