Comparing a Corvette to an Apache Helicopter

Most of us don’t get an opportunity to drive around in a Corvette, let alone sweep the skis on-board an Apache helicopter. But for General Richard Cody and his son, Major Clint Cody, those two things are something they have some pretty good experience in. In this video by Chevy, the father/son military duo describes some of the comparisons between these two powerful machines.

“An Apache…you have to fly them all the time,” says General Richard Cody, “The Corvette is the same way. It’s sleek, powerful. You have to drive it all the time. It’s not something you want to put on cruise.”

His son, Major Clint Cody adds, “It’s one of those cars you see on the street and people are scared. Just like people are scared of seeing the Apache flying around.”

We don’t believe Chevy intended to display differences between the Corvette and the Apache helicopter, but we were able to spot one almost immediately. Although both machines are “very quick, responsive, and powerful,” the Apache helicopter sure looks a lot like a giant buzzing insect.

Check out the video to see a few beautiful Corvettes and one deadly flying insect.

I’m impressed with the speed of corvette but comparing it to Apache Helicopter is I think a crazy idea, but I must say that I love to see the competition of these two. smiley Anyway, I will really wish corvette to have a big luck!

That’s weird! because I think corvette really needs first to have a wings to be compared to that Apache Helicopter.

Not bad for a comparison of two high performance machines. Well, I do agree that not all of us are that luck to have the chance to ride a helicopter or a Corvette in that matter but watching any of these two machines can really give a good feeling to the enthusiast. Seeing them in action is by far the best thing.

I wonder how will the Bugatti Veyron perform with this machines though. lol
