The 2018 Ford Mustang GT500 will be the muscle car to beat when it arrives and Chevrolet is probably hoping that their upgraded Chevrolet Corvette will have what it takes to take on the Ford Mustang GT500 but from what we have heard right now, it looks like the Corvette will still be trailing behind the Ford Mustang GT500.
New reports have suggested that Chevrolet is working on a new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 model that will be coming in with an upgraded engine. The engine will be able to deliver 700hp when it arrives. 50hp more than the most powerful Corvette right now.
As good as that sound, bear in mind that the upcoming 2018 Ford Mustang GT500 will be coming in with an 800hp engine. Not only will the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 find it hard to compete with the Mustang but they will also be struggling to compete with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat model. The current model offers 707hp but there are rumors saying Dodge is working on upgrading its powertrain as well.
