C6 Corvette Breaks Fastest-Ever Six-Speed Record
Equipped with a six-speed manual transmission and a ballsy driver, this Corvette is on a ‘Highway to Hell.’
How often do you watch drag racing videos on your phone? Every day, twice a week, every now and then? Regardless of the answer, you’ve probably grown used to seeing cars smoke their tires, take off, and run down the strip in spectacular fashion. You’re not alone, we have too.
That’s why when we watched the first 10 seconds of this clip by 1320video, we were blown away by the sheer speed of this C6 Corvette. You know that if you’re wowed by a car’s speed on a screen then it must really be hauling ass. That’s the case of this ridiculous 5.3-liter F1-x Procharger-turbocharged Corvette, which is one of the fastest things we’ve seen in a very long time.
