Before we get this article underway, let’s just clarify one thing: We, and you should too, are able to easily identify what car is depicted in this video. If you think you’ve got the right answer, be sure to leave your answer in the comments section below. Just as a quick clue, it’s Japanese.
Anyway, back to the video at hand. Reportedly filmed on the I-59 in Houston heading south, the crazy driver of this car was cruising down the freeway before an impressive Chevrolet Corvette Z06 pulled up behind said camera car and, as you’ve probably already guessed by now, a rolling drag race ensued.
Putting aside the obvious fact that the resulting race put the lives of dozens of innocent civilians at risk, and our obvious condemnation of the following actions of the drivers, the resulting video is quite enjoyable, even if the murdered Z06 does come within inches of hitting numerous cars in its pursuit to keep up with the camera car.
Before you watch the video, keep in mind that despite the fact that the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 ‘only’ produces 505 horsepower and 470lb-ft of torque, it held the crown of America’s fastest supercar for some time, as it’s capable of hitting 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph.
So, what car wiped the floor with this American icon?
