Video: Chevrolet Corvette Z06 chases 'mystery' supercar in vein

Posted on by 16

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?

Oh my god, that was unbelievable! However, I saw it with my two eyes and was greatly astounded on how Corvette managed to surpass the Nissan GT-R like that easily!

The freeway before an impressive Chevrolet Corvette Z06 pulled up behind the GT-R.

I’m so excited on Nissan GT-R for they will reveal another mystery!

Good gracious, how could they not get nervous while driving that? It’s already astonishing seeing it driven by others; if I personally drive it maybe I’d pissed in my pants. The amazing race of the GT-R and the Corvette is awesome. The Corvette easily manages to escape nearest miss on other cars.

It’s good to see that race between GT-R and Camaro. It’s nice to see both muscle car races hungrily.

I don’t really know what car is that but wow! It was awesome. I feel like I was there in the scene.

It’s the GT-R. No one performs that aggressive, only the Nissan does. Camaro somehow has same stamina, but it will take another mile to be on the GT-R level.

I’ve never thought that GT-R could be more aggressive than Chevrolet Corvette.

I can see how this Corvette chases wildly the Nissan GT-R. You’re right that’s GT-R.

That’s Nissan GT-R, you can identify it also at the awesome performance of the GTR against this Chevy Corvette.

If on the performance, I’d go on Nissan GT-R, but I found this Corvette more manageable than Nissan.

Car defiantly appears to be a GT-R. That is a C-6 Z06 and in a real race they would be pretty evenly matched. It was a fluke that the GT-R was pulling so hard, the vette pulled out to avoid an accident. Both of these cars are sick though....

I notice this car with the video is looks like Nissan GTR R34. I do not like the Corvette C5 anyway. Rock on speeding!

GT-R no doubt!

I was going to say a Lexus LFA because I never thought a Nissan GT-R could be faster than the fastest Vette. But the LFA is not available in the USA (yet) and it doesn’t have a spoiler. And this picture of the GT-R shows that exact spoiler.
I bet that GT-R is not stock.

Nissan GTR for the main arm of the spoiler?
