Is A 2010 Corvette ZR-1 Faster Than An F/A-18 Hornet?

Maybe a better question is, do you even care as long as the video has lots of smoking tire Corvette driving and wide open throttle F/A-18 launches? Motor Trend recently took a press fleet ZR-1 Corvette to Pensacola to run it against an F/A-18 from the Blue Angels. Get it? The Blue Devil against the Blue Angel?

In any case, MT’s editor, Arthur St. Antoine pays for his snark (with interest, I might add) when he gets a ride in the F/A-18. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a human being make noises like that before, even during a 7G turn. Props to St. Antoine, though; he didn’t black out once.

Enjoy the vid, which I shamelessly stole from my buddy Malcolm at Automotive Addicts.
