We have a real treat for you today; two fine ladies battling it out. Specifically, two women racing down the quarter mile. An introverted blonde named Jessica in a Corvette C7 Z06 took on Shelby in her hot-rodded Cadillac CTS-V during the Street Car Take Over 2015 in St. Louis.
During 1320Video’s pre-race interview, Jessica seemed nervous and claimed she has never drag raced before. Despite this claim she knew how to stage the Z06 perfectly, did a perfect street tire burnout and to top it off pulled a 10.84 quarter mile, beating the CTS-V by almost a second. Seems like someone has done a little sandbagging, or perhaps hustling in street races…
Battle of the Ladies: Corvette Jessica vs Cadillac Shelby
Both of these cars are high performance LSX hot rods. The Corvette C7 Z06 is powered by the now-infamous 6.2L LT4 V-8 engine that makes 650 horses and is backed by an 8 speed automatic. With 0-60 times of 2.9 seconds and a stock quarter mile of 11.2, it makes us wonder what mods Jessica is hiding to run 10.84.
In her defense, 1320Video never actually asked her about any mods. Shelly’s Cadillac CTS-V is also quite the impressive machine whose own 6.2L LSA has been modified with Lingenfelter upper and lower supercharger pulleys to up the boost, a Brian Tooley stage 2 cam, custom headers and an Alky Control methanol kit. The supercharger puts out 15-16 pounds of boost helping this motor make 610 horses to the tires.
Both of these cars are insanely fast and we believe the Jessica, the Z06 driver, knows more than she lets on.
