’Vette Z06 vs Koenigsegg CCXR

Video: it’s USA vs Sweden in screechy drag race… Gentlemen, on your marks

Admit it, you read ‘drag race' and immediately clicked hoping to find two flamboyantly dressed gentlemen engaging in a spot of competitive running, right?

Wrong. What you will instead find is something to lift the spirits - a race between two rather muscular supercars.

In the blue corner, we have a supercharged Chevrolet Corvette Z06, tuned to produce a reported 700bhp. In the classifications of superchargery, that's ‘very'.

In the white corner, we have a Koenigseggseggsegg CCXR, tuned to produce a claimed 1,024bhp. Remember, this is a more potent version of the car that tried to kill Stig. It's mean.

Can you guess which one wins? Place your bets below, then watch the video...
