‘Girl vs Girl’ Battle between C7 Z06 and 2nd-gen CTS-V

‘Girl vs Girl’ Battle Between Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V

There’s nothing like a friendly drag race among females, especially when one of them is driving a new Corvette Z06. Even though the Cadillac CTS- V is really no match for the 650-horsepower C7 in this race at the Street Car Takeover in St. Louis.

Interestingly, it doesn’t appear that Jessica, the driver of the Z06, really knows a lot about the car. When asked by 1320video what’s her favorite part of the Corvette, her response is, “I just like it,” with one of those looks that says, “I sure hope he doesn’t ask me anything else.”

On the other hand, Shelby, who owns the CTS-V, quickly starts rattling off the specs on her car, when it’s her turn to be interviewed.

However, Jessica does say that the Z06 is her daily driver, which suggests that she knows at least a little of the enthusiast lingo. And with a best pass of 10.84, she seems to be a pretty darn good driver too, which is probably the most important thing when you own a car as powerful as the Z06.

Awesome launch from the vette. Especially if that was really her first time.

I am assuming the Z06 is stock. If so, looks like the 10.95s 1/4th was low balling it. If a first-time drag racer can beat it, just imagine what some of the experts will do.

I smell sandbagging here but regardless. She got jumped on the start and still wore the modded LSA out. Looked REAL easy to run 10.84. I think the real magic in the 'Vette is how easy it looks to launch and traction is massive and instantaneous. Someone loan me $100 grand...

FYI she's no rookie but it is on stock tires and repeatable. I found another video of her running 3 passes at consistent 10.8's and 10.9's.

The vette just kills. It also costs more (?).

B.S. she is no rookie if she ran 10.84!!! She's hustling her competition.

That technique is... unique, to say the least. If she wasn't wearing a helmet in that 'vette, I would think she is driving in normal traffic. I'm surprised she didn't reach over and change the radio station.
