The Smoking Tire takes the C6 Corvette against its four-door friend, the Cadillac CTS-V, out for a challenge.
Up to El Mirage, the dry lake bed north of Los Angeles, where there’s plenty of room to take these LS-powered machines up to their full potential.

The 2008 C6 Corvette is packing a tuned LS3 joins it for a fun, fast, dust-spewing and dramatic time. Check it out.
