Matthew DeBord drove them both and picked a winner.
This is a preposterous comparison: the dashing red mid-engine Ferrari, tipping the price scales at $250,000 to start, against the stonking front-engine ‘Vette, with a base of about $80,000.
Doesn’t a Tesla outrun them both?
The competition versions of the 488 and the ‘Vette face each other down on the world’s racetracks. The 488’s twin-turbocharged V8 cranks out 661 horsepower, while the Z06 uses a supercharged V8 to achieve 650.
Muscle car mania.
Both cars blow your mind. But the Ferrari 488 knocks you into a different state of consciousness. It’s a transcendental supercar, while the Z06 is merely the best deal on the planet.
