[VIDEO] C6 Corvette Claims Title as World's Fastest 6-Speed Manual Corvette


Get ready to break out the expletives after this dude runs the fastest stick-shift Corvette ever in Charlotte, N.C.

At least that’s what the bearded announcer does after witnessing the record-setting run of 8.75 seconds at 169.04 mph in this silver C6 Corvette.

Who can blame him?

“Quickest…and fastest,” the driver points out in this YouTube video posted by 1320 Video.

“That’s what we built it for,” he says of his Corvette, which has a stroker 5.3-liter with a massive F1-x Procharger under the hood.

And the record-setter goes on to tell us that he hasn’t even hooked up the nitrous yet! He’s hoping to shave even more time off the record before he switches over to an automatic transmission.

The old record, by the way, was 8.77 seconds.

By the way, this was the first time the Corvette had been out on the quarter-mile track.

“Freaking awesome,” the announcer concludes.
