2023 Corvette Z06 vs Dodge Demon // DRAG & ROLL RACE
When the details originally came out surrounding the Dodge Demon, it was a very exciting time in the automotive performance community. It seems like in plenty of situations, automakers have a way of putting performance enthusiasts on the back burner. The Demon was designed to do the exact opposite, bringing the wants and needs of people who like to drive fast the center stage and doing it in such a way that seemingly had the entire community’s stamp of approval.
However, as time has marched forward, the Demon is a couple of years old now. With that in mind, we can’t help but wonder how exactly this technology will stand up against some of the newer offerings to the market.
In this particular comparison from Throttle House, we get to see just that as the powerhouse from Dodge goes head to head with perhaps the hottest nameplate in the performance market moving toward 2023. We’re talking, of course, about the Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
Since the Corvette has switched up its business model and gone mid-engine, all eyes have been on the platform to see exactly how it will perform. After all, this monumental change means re-engineering everything that Chevrolet has known about the Corvette as an attempt to become more of a supercar than the muscle machine of years past.
The best way to prove that your car has the chops to stand up against the best in the business when it comes to performance is to put it against a monster like the Demon.
This battle is a rather interesting one as the Demon offers up much more power. The 840 hp 6.2 L supercharged monster is an absolute freak of nature. In fact, it offers 170 more horsepower than the naturally aspirated 670 hp Corvette Z06. Some cars don’t even have 170 hp!
However, among other factors, the saving grace of the Corvette could potentially come in weight savings as the car is 846 pounds lighter than its opposition. At 4280 pounds, the Demon really does live up to the “boat” moniker.
By following along with the video below, we get to watch these two iconic American performance machines go toe to toe in an epic battle, and boy are we thankful that we have both of them.
