This Is What It’s Like Driving A 1,500-HP Corvette Down The Highway

Follow Viknesh

We’ve seen what 1,500 horsepower unleashed in the C6 Chevrolet Corvette can do at the drag strip, as well as at the Texas Mile, but now here’s a video showing what it’s like driving with that much power down a highway.

The video shows the driver of a twin-turbocharged Corvette dropping the hammer at around 50 mph and accelerating flat out until close to 180 mph.

Some of the modifications include new headers, high-flow catalytic converters, a fully customized twin-turbocharger setup, and one insane driver behind the wheel.

The car appears to never let out and takes just a few seconds to reach blistering speeds, albeit with some sideways action occurring around the 90 mph mark. It just goes to show how difficult it can be trying to handle that much power, especially when it’s going to the rear wheels only.

The guys at High Tech Corvette who posted the video point out that the speeds have been recorded using a GPS so may not be accurate, though any discrepancy is likely to underrate the actually speed being travelled.

We strongly recommend you don’t try this at home.

  1. This guy is a pretty ballsy. You can tell he loses traction around 100mph. That would be my sign to lay off the gas. If there was a feminina in the car, it would be time to try and explain why the car smells like human POO.
