The test did specifically say that the cup 2Rs had too much grip and made the launch system bog down. hence why the car was SLOWER than the heavier convertible PS4 tires.

no need of complicated theories...

This car is a mystery to me.
610 hp on wheels and 1/4 mile trap speed same as the Blackwing?
Maybe it suffered from bad conditions, and better results will follow later?

High downforce


User avatar

196ss  2w ago @Shwingbob

I know about downforce.
But still, 458 Italia with 200 hp less has higher trap speed.

200hp less??
How?


User avatar

Corvolet3  2w ago @Lambolover

Probably meant 100 hp. Might have been a typing error since the 1 is next to the 2.


User avatar

196ss  2w ago @Lambolover

Sorry, I meant 100 of course


User avatar

Lambolover  2w ago @196ss

Also 458 is lighter by about 100 kgs if I'm not mistaken


User avatar

Lambolover  2w ago @196ss

Another thing is that 458 tests were mostly done by tuned presscars
No way in hell 458s doing 10.8s in 1/4 mile

"Strategic lift" in the last second of 1/4 mile. To give hopeless competitors Ferrari, Porsche and Mercedes at least some reason not to give up entirely... 😂


User avatar

196ss  2w ago @FastestLaps

Yeah, that's the only relevant explanation...


User avatar

196ss  2w ago @Lambolover

458s with the trap speed of 133-134 mph are probably tuned, but there are a huge number of runs with 129-130 mph, and even that value is problematic for a C8 Z07.
Another example is the Viper ACR: the power to weight ratio is very similar, but the Viper produces 2.5 times the downforce and has a manual transmission. Although, the trap speed is almost the same.

I'm late to the convo, however, here's a rundown.

The Corvette C8 Z06 is not putting down 610whp, even after a cooldown period, unless it's in a controlled environment. It's closer to 590whp.

The Blackwing makes a little bit more power (around 605whp), and loads more torque (around 615lb-ft vs 419lb-ft) than the Z06.

Supercharged versus Naturally Aspirated. The C8 Z06 needs to get all the way to 8400rpm to achieve it's max power, while the Caddy needs just 6400rpm. The LT6 may Rev quicker than the LT4, but it doesn't quite make up for a 2000rpm disadvantage (I assume). Also, it helps that the Caddy gets max torque at 3600rpm while the vette's at 6300rpm (manufacturer claims)

(This one may surprise some people) the CT5 V Blackwing has less drag than the C8 Z06, no matter the configuration. The fact that the Z06 tested here was the one with the carbon fiber aero package, it made it quite a bit worse for the vette.

The Z06 tested here didn't have the Z07 Package, which means less sticky tires (for the launch), and more importantly, doesn't have the carbon fiber wheels, so it has a lot more rotational mass.

I hope this helps

It sounds better and smoother than all ferris' or any other italiean car

It weighs as much as an 1650+kg amg one


User avatar

Lambolover  1w ago @196ss

458 with 130mph trap?
Maybe on it's best day
I should look some runs up but I think best 458 can do is an 11.2-11.1 at 125-127

Apparently the one that was tested by caranddriver wasn't even the Z07 package, but rather the Z06 convertible with the carbon aero package... things are getting confusing.

Z06 makes 610 hp to the wheels
