When the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray arrives this year, it will undercut several other hybrid exotics on the market with its jaw-dropping 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds – making it the quickest Corvette ever, despite not wearing the cheater-slick tires found on the Z06. With the benefits of all-wheel drive and instantaneous torque thanks to electrification. The Corvette E-Ray has 655 horsepower and 595 lb-ft of torque, but how does that compare to other exotic cars like the Ferrari F8 and Lamborghini Huracan Evo?
Corvette E-Ray Vs. Ferrari & Lamborghini: A Battle Of Supercars
Hagerty recently got ahold of these three epic cars to answer this question, pinning them head-to-head in a drag race. Looking at the numbers, the Ferrari F8 Spider has more power than the E-Ray, with 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque coming from its 3.9L Twin-Turbo V8. The Lamborghini Huracan Evo produces 602 ponies and 413 lb-ft of torque from its 5.2L V10. Of course, the E-Ray has more power, but another factor in a drag race is the vehicle’s weight. The Corvette E-Ray weighs 3,924 lbs, the Ferrari F8 weighs 3,650 lbs, and the Lamborghini Huracan weighs 3,674 lbs.
On paper, the Ferrari F8 wins in terms of power, and weight, the Lamborghini Huracan has the least power and falls in second place in terms of weight, and the Corvette E-Ray weighs the most and fits between the two in terms of power. However, numbers aren’t everything, and letting these three iconic cars race one another will be the only way to see how fast the Corvette E-Ray is compared to the others. Straight off the line, the Corvette E-Ray launches faster than the other two, building a gap between it and the other cars on the track.
The result? The Corvette E-Ray finishes the quarter-mile in 10.4 seconds, which means that it’s not only faster than the Ferrari and Lamborghini, but it’s also faster than the Corvette Z06, which achieved a time of 10.5 seconds. Although a closer analysis of the performance shows that the Z06 is faster than the E-Ray by the time it reaches the finish line, the incredible launch makes the hybrid car a tenth of a second faster. But despite this subtle difference, both cars are quicker than the Italian supercars.
