Matt Farah Corvette ZR1

By now it’s no secret that Smoking Tire host and Car Show co-host Matt Farah has a pretty good life. Hell, he’s not only driven just about everything under the sun, but he’s been able to establish himself as one of the best automotive authorities around. About a month ago Matt had called me up and asked if I wanted to run the Mojave Mile with him in the Corvette ZR1 you are about to see, but unfortunately I was unable to make it. That however didn’t stop him from going out and running the wheels off of what is the baddest factory Vette’ ever built. Remember now, the Corvette ZR1 has 638 hp, 604 lb-ft of torque and a top end of 205 mph which makes it wickedly quick. If you want to see just how quick through, click through and watch Matt run through the gears as he tackles one of the coolest automotive events around.

    I saw a Charger in their photos and I was hoping it was yours :(

    I did like his closing statement: Trust the engineers. They stuck it in a wind tunnel and went faster speeds than the car will ever go, to make it as aerodynamic as possible. Rather silly to think that your adhoc additions would do any good.

    Awesome video, though. I’d love to know more about that little go kart. It seemed pretty damn quick.
