One rear-drive coupe with over 500 horsepower would be enough for most automakers. But not General Motors (http://www.autoblog.com/gm). The biggest of the Detroit automakers just couldn't get by with what some rivals would put on a showroom turntable with more flood-lights than an ATF raid. That's why it makes the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/corvette/) and ZR1 (http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/zr1/), the Camaro ZL1 (http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/camaro/) and the Cadillac CTS-V (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/cts-v+coupe/). (And that's before we get into overseas products like the Holden Commodore GTS/Vauxhall VXR8 (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/12/15/2011-vauxhall-vxr8-is-all-we-really-want-for-the-holidays/).)

The question is, which one is best for burnouts? To bring us one step closer to the answer we all crave, our compatriots over at Inside Line took two such 500+hp GM super-coupes - the Z06 Centennial Edition (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/04/07/2012-chevrolet-centennial-edition-corvette-is-all-about-racing-h/) and the CTS-V Coupe - down to the Streets of Willow for the fifth installment of their Burnout Super Test.

So, which of the General's eight-cylinder muscle machines laid down the longest strip of rubber?
