Before there was “blinker fluid”, “muffler bearings”, and “summer air” for your tires, engineers had their own inside joke known as the “Turbo Encabulator”. The legend of the Turbo Encabulator has been with us since the 1940s and over the years it has received several updates thanks to new technology.
Our friend Michael Brown offers up this humorous take on the Turbo Encabulator as it’s found on the C8 Corvette. If you think that engineers use mumbo-jumbo to discuss the latest technological feats, then this video is for you!
With tongue firmly-in-cheek, former Corvette Nation co-host, Corvette enthusiast, collector and producer/director of the Corvette documentary ‘The Quest,’ Michael Brown, takes on the fictitious persona of Automotive Engineer Claymore Meine. Updating a classic old bit on the ‘turbo encabulator,’ this short clips purports to ‘reveal’ the best-kept secret of the new 2020 mid-engine Corvette. In the end, the narrator gets a proper comeuppance.
It’s not the first time that the accomplished filmmaker has done a tongue-in-cheek sendoff on the new Corvette. Back when the 2009 Corvette ZR1 was first introduced, Michael offered up the All-Electric 2009 Corvette ZR1.
