[PICS] Black Corvette Z06 Looks Awesome on D2Forged Wheels

Check out this video of NYC-based rapper “LYRIC INFORCA” as he plays a stereotypical New Yorker driving around in a Velocity Yellow Corvette Z06 while banging out some big beats.

Actually, this NSFW video is just about the worst thing you’ll ever seen. In hindsight, we can’t decide whether the Corvette is the video’s saving grace or the unfortunate victim of being owned by a gold chainer “Yo, Vinnie from the Bronx”.

[VIDEO] Turkish Corvette Burnouts End with a Resounding FAIL

At this rather large gathering of car enthusiasts in Turkey, we see a black C6 Corvette doing some impressive burnouts and donuts.

What happens next can only be described with a face palm to the forehead.

[PICS] 1986 Corvettes Customized on SPEED's Car Warriors From Us on Twitter

Last night on SPEED, we watched two shops from California duke it out as they attempted to modify and customize a 1986 Corvette in 48 hours. In the end, the blue team hailing from Shinbone Alley in Fresno came out on top with their 1986 Corvette which was finished in two-tone black and copper. The red team, from Sledsville in So-Cal, also went black and gold with their build, but their ambitious plan for customizing their Corvette was just too much to accomplish in 48 hours. Our friends at SPEED sent us some additional photography of the cars taken during filming of the show and we’ll share them with you after the jump.

[PIC] Instragam Captures Aftermath of Corvette Accidents

I wouldn’t technically call this a fail as fail usually denotes that the person behind the wheel of the car is somehow at fault for doing something stupid. So having said that, we came across an instagram tweet late this afternoon from @chrisgoulet that said the following:

“Has anyone seen my #vette? #corvette #fail”

We retweeted the photo and asked for details. @ChrisGoulet replied:

“Construction + double-lane left-hand turn = side-swiped and run off the road.”

Jay Leno and a C1 Corvette Featured in New Burger King Commercial

We all know Jay Leno loves cars, so our first thought when we saw his new commercial for Burger King wasn’t about the new menu. It was our concern that ketchup and mustard – not to mention barbecue sauce – might somehow get on that lovely C1 Corvette he was driving in the commercial.

The words of praise about the Corvette ZR1 soar as high as the beautiful scenery of Italy as Motor Trend Editor At Large Angus MacKenzie and successful racer Justin Bell drive Chevy’s fastest ‘Vette ever from Munich, Germany to Maranello, Italy.
