With what the Chevrolet Corvette has to offer right now, the Ford Mustang GT500 will easily take them down but Chevrolet has already started working on their answer to the GT500, the Corvette ZR1.
According to Chevrolet, the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will be getting powertrain upgrade to make sure it can take one model like the GT500. Under the hood will be an upgraded engine that will be pushing out about 700hp to 750hp when it arrives. The current Corvette delivers about 650hp.
While that is still nowhere near the 800hp that the Ford Mustang GT500 will be offering when it arrives, we also need to take into consideration the weight of the vehicles. The Ford Mustang GT500 which is a bulkier model will definitely weigh more than the Corvette and that might be all the Corvette need to take on the GT500.
