Chevrolet is celebrating the 59th Birthday of the Corvette this week. Here is a video they released today on the Chevrolet Youtube Channel featuring a look back at 60 years of America’s favorite sports car.
That’s no rookie behind the wheel, but even an experienced driver like Kelly Bise has trouble keeping a supercharged Corvette Z06′s power under control.
In this video from High Tech Corvette, Bise gets his Z06 up to an incredible 160 mph in just a half-mile run at the Houston Mile before he lets up.

The Corvette owners were participating in the first-ever St. Jude Corvette Drive in early May and wound up raising $50,000 for the hospital.
