Bearing the somewhat naughty name of the Wet Rod, the jet ski will reportedly have a Corvette 5.7-liter V8 motor capable of 300 horsepower and propelling the personal water craft to speeds of 65 mph.

Check out the view from a C6 Corvette as it runs behind the Corvette Pace Car during the PIT Rally on Colorado’s Central City Parkway. The course is 7 miles, 4 lanes wide, 23 turns and a 2,500 ft hill climb through the Rocky Mountains.

Chasing a GO4IT Racing Corvette (pace car) in my street C6 Corvette on Central City Parkway in Colorado during PIT Rally 2014. Hit a top speed of 140 MPH, averaging 104 MPH over 6.9 miles and 1500 ft of overall elevation climb. I was admittedly a little hesitant around some of those blind turns!

One of the videos we caught of the event featured a C5 Corvette that hit a top speed of 166 mph on the two lane road.

But that’s not all. Driving the yellow Corvette, according to the PA announcer, was an 81 year old grandmother.
