Jeremy Clarkson Has a Crush on the Corvette C7
No, Jeremy Clarkson doesn’t want to crush the new Corvette. He actually likes it.
I thought I’d outgrown the idea of putting up posters of cars on the wall, but this one of a Corvette patent filed by GM in 1966 has certainly changed my mind.
The fact that the ‘Vette is even considered a serious contender now among these much pricier heavyweights says a lot.
My jaw has fallen off. This has to be the best Corvette resto mod ever, right? Please argue with me on this one because I would love to see you come up with something better.
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?
