Visual And Interactive NASCAR/V8 Supercar Comparison

With Kurt Busch's Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup car joining an Australian V8 Supercar on the Circuit of the Americas to promote the upcoming Texas 400, the team from Australia's leading motorsport website, Speedcafe.com have prepared an interactive comparison that graphically displays the dimensions of the two V8 powered machines.

While the NASCAR has taken its Chevrolet body styling based on the Holden VF Commodore that will be racing in the inaugural race on the US Formula 1 and MotoGP Grand Prix circuit, the two are strikingly different proportionally.

In essence, the NASCAR is a more highly modified version of the road-going donor car given that it has no doors, has more pronounced flanks and a different rear three-quarter glass and body area.

The American stock car has an overall more chunky, muscular look and is considerably longer than the V8 Supercar.

Kurt Busch’s Chevrolet SS Sprint Cup car arrived at the Circuit Of The Americas circuit in Austin where a customised V8 Supercar is also garaged.

The two machines were part of a promotional media event this week where James Courtney and Fabian Coulthard - who drive the Australian Holden version in V8 Supercars - flew to the Texas track where V8 Supercars will race from May 17-19.
