The fact that the ‘Vette is even considered a serious contender now among these much pricier heavyweights says a lot.
In case you haven’t been keeping track, the C7.R has quickly become the car to beat in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship’s GT Le Mans class.
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.
Corvettes, like all sports cars, have low centers of gravity, so when you’ve got a ‘Vette on three wheels, you’re doing some hard driving.
