The C8 Corvette vs The Ford GT
Both the Chevrolet C8 Corvette and the Ford GT have a long history of power and excellence as sports cars. For the first time ever, they can be compared directly because they are both mid-engine supercars. Though the Corvette and GT rise above all other cars, their direct competition reveals a winner. The Chevy Corvette Z06 beats out the GT Ford with unbeatable stopping power, winning sound, and its excellent sculpting.

Stopping Power that Can’t Be Beat
Every powerful, capable engine needs some serious braking ability. The all-new Corvette Z06 features standard 6-piston front/4-piston rear brakes designed to give you just that. Providing state-of-the-art braking performance, the sports vehicle also has available carbon ceramic brakes to make sure you can meet track demands. The Ford GT just can’t keep up.
Sculpted to Soar in Every Way
The Corvette Z06 is as commanding as it is functional. It features wider fenders, quarter panels, and fascias than the Stingray. Its standard ground effects and spoiler optimize aerodynamic drag and powertrain cooling efficiency. Replaceable spoiler wicker bills, rear brake cooling ducts, removable front fascia panel and front underwing stall gurneys increase downforce, keeping the Z06 poised and planted as you round the track.
The Corvette Z06 prepares you for the track, while the Ford GT offers little to be excited about. It has lots of exposed carbon fiber throughout the interior. Though it does have a relatively modern infotainment system, the screen is much smaller, and it has far fewer features and luxury in general.
