Here’s a pretty funny video of two guys in a old VW who chase down a pre-production Corvette Z06 prototype as it pulls into a Walmart in Yuma, AZ. The driver of the Corvette greets the two and answers some basic questions before heading inside, although we found it interesting that he further confuses them by referring to the Corvette by its Z07 equipment package instead of the model designation which is indeed the Z06.
The duo let a couple of expletives fly as they see the car and do their walk around, but hey, if we saw a pre-production Corvette Z06 all dressed up in camo, we would “follow that motherfucker all over” too.
One of the gents (green shirt with a hat straight out of Caddyshack) seems to be pretty up on his Z06 knowledge, right away realizing it’s a Z06 and knowing its coming out next year. He describes the function of the HUD when asked about it and is awed by huge carbon ceramic brakes.
Green shirt dude also wonders aloud what color is under the camouflage. “Probably red” he says, and then tells his friend that “this what they do so you can’t take satellite pictures of it”. He also says that people are going to be so pissed that they missed seeing it and to take some more pictures because “they are breaking new ground here”.
It is fun to watch ordinary folks go gaga over the new Corvette and we do appreciate their enthusiasm for the new car. Obviously, they did too as their walk-around video runs over six minutes.
We’re sure this won’t be the last pre-production Corvette Z06 prototype captured on video in Yuma, but this is most likely the funniest one.
