Got six figs laying around? Why use it to buy a life when you can put it towards your demise? Mashable reviewed the 1963 Corvette Grand Sport, which is currently still being made in 2016, and basically told us that diapers should come included with purchase. The car costs $164,000 and is made to 1963 spec, meaning it will beat the piss out of your eardrums and if you get into an accident like this guy, you’re cinnamon french toast, my friend. No airbags, no anti-lock brakes. Even the steering wheel requires an extra upper body day at the gym.
From the video’s description:
“This ’60s era Corvette Grand Sport is not a restoration job or a replica, instead it’s a certified continuation of the original car. That means it’s actually a 1963 Corvette racecar built in 2016, but you do not want to walk away from a crash in this beast. “Driving this car in full throttle, is like riding the devil straight to hell. You know it’s so so wrong, but you love every damn second of it,” says Mashable Transportation Reporter Nick Jaynes as he sits in the driver seat of this $164,000 car.”
This car is like the complete opposite of Stuntman Mike’s car from Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, which were actually two vehicles – the 1970 Chevy Nova and the 1969 Dodge Charger. As someone who’s driven a Dodge Charger, that thing is like viagra on Red Bull.
Sure, if you’re someone like Stuntman Mike, you get the kinda awkward, kinda cool lap dance in a bar from a chick in flip flops…
But, odds are, you’ll likely become a human piñata…
Personally, I’d rather go for the half-Corvette, half-airplane. That baby can fly!
