[Animation] Trip Out on the Evolution of the Corvette
Seeing the evolution of the Corvette in photos is one thing, but seeing the transformation from one generation to the next play out in an animation is a completely different story.
A 37-year-old guy allegedly shot someone in Montana and then tried to make a getaway in a silver 2013 Corvette that he rented.
If there’s one thing that really gets under my skin, it’s seeing someone who has taken a Corvette platform and turned it into some awful contraption that completely disgraces the nameplate.
Hats off to the guys at Krider Racing for their recent victory in the Speed Ventures Corvette Challenge.
Back in the days of the C5, the late John Lingenfelter was able to get a Corvette up to 225 mph with “only” 650 horsepower. By the time the C6 ZR1 rolled into production, it was able to achieve “only” 205 mph with 638 horsepower. With cars that are pumping out similar power figures, why the top speed discrepancy?
