I'd still take the GT based on looks alone.
One of each? Since I don’t have to write the check.
The new Ford GT above all others regardless of how fast are. Well maybe a McLaren P1 too.
664 and 668 horsepower at the wheel. skip to the 5:00 video mark to watch the show. The other stuff is fluff.
Corvette's Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter and Chevy are currently at the Nürburgring Nordschleife with the intent to break the magic 7:00 mark. If the ZR1 can brake the 7 minute mark it will be the first time an American production vehicle has broken the mark. This track is known to be a narrow, scary, and dangerous track. The Porsche GT2 RS set a lap time record of 6:47.3, which will be pretty tough to beat. Most of Porsche's drivers and engineers were born and bred at the difficult 12.9 mile track known simply as the 'Ring. Porsche pretty much uses the best 'Ring drivers there are. For Chevy to top the GT2 record will be a very difficult feat as their drivers are at a severe disadvantage. FWIW, the current American record there is 7:01.3 which was achieved by a 2017 Dodge Viper ACR driven by Lance David Arnold in September 2017.
Gotta give Chevy credit.....That's a BA Corvette...sounds almost as good as my Boss when starting up....
The guy who owns that car (YTber StreetSpeed717) has not even broken in the vehicle. He only has 300 miles on the vehicle. GM asks owners to take it easy on the car for the first 500 miles. I have heard it reported that the vehicle is capabale of 800 hp just adding 100 octane. Currently the tuners are trying to crack the code so they can tune it. The belief is this vehicle has a conservative tune and eventually once the code is broken tuners will eventually get 1000 hp out of this stock engine.
15% driveline loss is a long time rule of thumb, and probably an outdated number.
Modern cars are more efficient in just about every way as parasitic losses continue to diminish. 12% gives you 665 rwhp so that's probably a better number going forward.
Is the Chevy Corvette inching it's way toward Ford GT level?
More like striding past it.
Dollar for dollar you can't beat the Corvette's value right now....but it's starting to get a big ego of it's own (well deserved IMHO)
No way will they get 1000hp with a tune and fuel only.

I have a friend trying to get an old Volks Bug more HP...He's in the same boat.Altho I think he trying for 100, not 1000.
Not so fast...
So Rick. You going to start up a TrackCorvettesOnline forum any time soon?
You see the size of the back tires on that thang?
P335/25ZR20. That's a lotta rubber.
Haha, one forum is enough. Plus I'm not really a Corvette guy. Ford Mustangs and Porsche 911's are my favs.
......with maybe a Lambo or Maserati thrown in for good measure...
I like that the very next article is "Chevy Aims for a Sub-7 Minute ZR1 Nurburgring Time."
Pretty much Mustangs, Porsches and McLarens. The 720S is a ROCKET!
