President Obama was doing a tour through Detroit on Wednesday and one of his stops was the North American International Auto Show. The White House tweeted a video showing the President walking into the Chevrolet display and the first vehicle he encounters is the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition in glorious Corvette Racing Yellow.
The audio is somewhat faint, but the President is heard saying “That looks all right. You know, ah, it’s subtle.”
Another voice adds “They would never see you coming!”
President Obama spends another 10 seconds admiring the Corvette Z06 before turning away to check out the new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt behind him.
This is the President’s second encounter with Corvettes in the last month. In December, he drove a 1963 Corvette convertible on the White House grounds with Jerry Seinfeld as a guest on Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
After that experience of actually driving a 1963 Corvette and then seeing the latest 2016 Corvette Z06, could POTUS be suffering from a budding case of Corvette Fever?
