I thought watching those Corvettes fall into that sinkhole at the museum was tough to swallow, but this one beats that by a long shot — namely because this one is a man-made disaster as opposed to a natural catastrophe like the sinkhole.
Maybe Godzilla isn’t the big behemoth to beat after all. In this battle against a twin-turbo C6 Corvette, the Nissan GT-R, nicknamed after the towering monster, seemed far less superior.
