This video shows a Corvette C6 Z06 (as well as a yellow C5 caught in the crossfire) having to play catch-up for the most part with a mystery car that some viewers believe to be a Nissan GT-R.
No matter what kind of car it is that was doing the filming, it was just plain irresponsible behavior on the part of both drivers, who should have taken their fun and games to a race track away from other innocent travelers who could have been killed by their shenanigans on I-59 in Houston. Several times, it’s amazing that they were able to avoid collisions with other cars.
The Nissan, if that’s what it indeed is, appears to be the faster of the two cars, but as one person commented, the video really proves nothing about the capabilities of either. The Corvette driver could have just been showing a little more restraint in his driving since he was behind the wheel of a 7.0-liter V8 capable of 505-hp and a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph.
Maybe these two guys should just head to the nearest boxing ring and duke it out to decide who’s the toughest.
