The video starts off with the driver complementing the passenger about his decision to attach his camera to his head. For those who have not tried it, it can be surprisingly difficult to hold a camera on target in a car while pulling some serious cornering speed. It appears that this was a media day at the new National Corvette Museum road track, and looks like quite a fun time.
The driver rockets out of the hot pits and begins shifting through the first few gears in a manual equipped Stingray. This white exterior with red/black interior option is quite a color combination, and well received here at Corvette Online. The unassuming passenger asks the driver (Ron Fellows) what speed they reached. To which Ron passively replies, “that’s about 105 right there.” The passenger seems to be enjoying himself, and you can hear his tone of voice change when entering and exiting some corners, as Mr. Fellows was undoubtedly giving him quite the ride.
Ron also poses the question about it being hard to believe such performance is coming from a production car on factory tires. We couldn’t say it any better, as the Stingray feels extraordinarily different then any past Corvette. These cars have an amazing feel to them, and whether equipped with a manual gearbox or the paddle-shifted automatic, they are simply one amazing sports car.
Towards the end of video, right before exiting the vehicle, the passenger asks the driver for his name, he then proceeds to call Ron Fellows “Rob”. Considerably funny, at least in the Corvette World, but being the gentlemen that Mr. Fellows is, he chose to let is slide.
