The 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 vs. the 2014 Nissan GT-R

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06When it comes to choosing a supercar near Tampa, you know that the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06—available soon at Cox Chevy in Bradenton—is the best of the best, right? First of all, it’s a Chevy. Think of how many vehicles you know of that have earned such a reputation for style and substance. Next, it’s a Corvette. This means Chevrolet has pulled out all of the stops, ensuring that the Z06 is set to outperform and outclass all comers.

That won’t stop the competition from trying, though. The 2014 Nissan GT-R is another supposed supercar that is looking to go head-to-head with the Z06. Does it stand a chance?

The Pinnacle of Technology

As supercars, both of these vehicles are expected to sport the latest in technology, both under the hood and in the cabin. While there are many perks you’ll find in the cockpit of the Z06 that are not available in the GT-R, the one we’re most fond of is the performance data recorder.

When you’re behind the wheel of the Corvette, you can have it record your drive alongside performance statistics that you can upload online later. You can even watch the route you took right from the driver’s seat—as long as you’re parked. No such feature exists on the GT-R.

Get Pure Power in the Corvette

At the end of the day, we know each supercar will have a unique design and be loaded with technology, and while the Corvette certainly seems to have the lead already, how does it fare in power?

The 2014 GT-R has a 3.8L V6 that’s rated at 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque. Now, those numbers are incredibly impressive for a V6, but if you want to max out your power, you have to go all the way. Chevrolet’s engine is a 6.2L V8 with 625 hp and 635 lb-ft of torque.
