In a successful attempt to make the rest of the world jealous.
The editors of the English automotive journal AutoCar have wrangled up two of the most powerful sports cars of the moment and put them in a head to head competition that they are calling the Clash of the Titans.
Representing the good old U.S. of A is the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with its plexiglass hood showing off all 638 intercooled horsepower while the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce makes an impressive 670 HP, but has to send it to all four wheels and the style of something truly out of this world.
So with the journalist Steve Sucliffe behind the wheel of Detroit’s most powerful piece of iron, he will try and see if he can keep up with Max Venturi, Lamborghini’s super handler.
So was he successful?
