It’s been a long time coming…
The idea of a true American sports car has been laughed at by the rest of the planet. Even Latvia chuckles when we say that we can make a car go around corners well. The Germans give us a gentle chuckle and a pat on the back. Japan reminds us that a sports car is supposed to go in multiple directions. Even the United Kingdom, which has relegated its sports cars to luxury duty (built in India) smiles and gives us a sarcastic thumbs up, when we say that we can build a real-deal sports car.
You know what?
F*$k ’em all… the C7 Corvette is ready to set the world on fire.
Warning… I’m still getting better at editing myself, which means this video is way too long. Please enjoy…
[Disclaimer: Chevrolet lent us a C7 ‘Vette for a week. The automaker included a tank of gas and fresh tires. We returned the car with some fuel… and some tires.]
