As a longtime Corvette driver, we know that we are happier when we are behind the wheel of America’s favorite sports car. Having the experience of spending the day driving the C7 Corvette Stingray put a smile on our face and bounce in our step for the rest of the week, but we never really quite understood why driving the new Corvette changed us physically until we saw this Reverse Test Drive video from Chevrolet.
Chevrolet brought in five people with very different backgrounds to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch to test drive the 2014 Corvette Stingray. What’s different about this test drive is that the individuals were hooked up to sensors attached to their bodies to record biometric data during the test. Heart rate, breathing and brain activity were all monitored as they each raced around the track.
The “influencers” who took part of the study included Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of the Gran Turismo franchise, an online fitness blogger named Kelly Olexa and Phillip Cooley, a Detroit restaurant owner.
Here are the videos from the Reverse Test Drive but you’ll probably want to wander over to the official Corvette Vimeo Channel to take in the interactive experience from the drive.
