Two English Gents Show How to Cook with a Corvette V8 Engine

We’ve all heard of having fun with our Corvette, but a recent video from recombu.com’s Joyride with Rory Reid features the host and his pal, English actor/comedian Robert Llewellyn, definitely taking that idea and spinning it off in a different direction.

[VIDEO] Mystery Car Taunts a Corvette Z06

[VIDEO] Mystery Car Taunts a Corvette Z06

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.

If General Motors, and therefore Corvette, are to thrive, it will likely take more employees like Dan Ammann.

Named the chief financial officer of the new GM last year, Ammann has wasted little time making it clear to those underneath him that he’s not one of the old guard. To illustrate his point, he recently even took his gray-metallic Corvette Z06 to 150 miles per hour in a challenge to the company’s “car guys.” Ammann is one of only 30 GM executives authorized to drive that fast on GM’s Michigan track.
