My publication is getting a brand new Chevy Bolt long-term test car. So naturally, my bosses decided that we needed to drag race this thing against the Cletus-Vette. GM claims the Bolt will do 0-60 in 6.5-seconds, vintage road tests time my Corvette at about the same. Which do you think will be faster?

I’m listing the specs of both cars below for your bench racing.
