[VIDEO] Corvette Z06 vs GT500 vs GT-R: Motor Trend's 5-Figure Supercar Shootout

Motor Trend put together an interesting comparison test for finding the best sub-$100,000 supercar. Stepping up to the challenge was Chevrolet’s Corvette Z06, Ford’s Shelby GT500 and Nissan’s GT-R. The three cars met at the Streets of Willow where World Challenge GT champion Randy Pobst spent the day hot-lapping these cars in the high desert of California.

[VIDEO] Atlanta Corvette Driver Slams Police Cruiser in Hit and Run

We think Corvette enthusiasts are some of the greatest people in the world. Unfortunately, we also have our share of morons who think they can do whatever they want. Case in point? A police officer cruising the Lenox Mall in Atlanta saw a C6 Corvette parked in the fire lane. As he pulls behind it, the car’s driver comes out of the mall. The officer attempts to question him and the man jumps in the car, locks the doors and takes off at a high rate of speed.

Man Teaches Daughter How To Do Donuts In A Corvette ZHZ

This video is awesome on so many levels. First, the lure of hooning a rented car is strong motivation enough, but when that rental is a Velocity Yellow Corvette ZHZ from Hertz, your sense of right and wrong goes out the door. But the real beauty of this video is the relationship between father and daughter. She will never forget the day her dad taught her how to do donuts in a yellow Corvette and believe me, neither will he.

This poor driver in a Silver C6 Corvette was attempting to drive on I-30 near Buckner Blvd in Dallas but the roads were proving almost too much for the 436-hp rear wheel drive sports car and this traffic-copter caught it all. His frustration rises to the point where he actually gets out of the car and shrugs his shoulders in the near defeat. But the Corvette owner isn’t defeated and soon he is back behind the wheel and slipping and sliding his way to what we hope is a nice warm garage.

[VIDEO] Barrett-Jackson 2011: 2011 Le Mans Anniversary Corvette Z06 Sells for $210,000

The Corvette Museum’s Motorsport Park project got a shot in the arm on Friday night following the sale of the 2011 Le Mans Anniversary Corvette Z06 at the 2011 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale. The sale of the White/Blue one-off VIN #001 Corvette Z06 for $210,000 to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick was probably a little lower than what the NCM was looking for, but every little bit helps!
