Drivers leaving the dealership behind the wheel of a brand new car have different ways of celebrating, but few can top a sweet drift in a brand new Chevrolet Corvette Z06. That’s exactly what one driver did to celebrate his new purchase and, for once, it didn’t end in disaster. Even better, there’s a video that provides a clear view of the drift.
There’s no doubt that the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 brings plenty of performance to the road, but not every driver can control it. Fortunately, the man behind the wheel of the model in the video could, and he proved it.
The video opens with the black Corvette Z06 waiting patiently at the end of a dealership drive. Once traffic is clear, the driver unleashes the beast beneath the hood, performs a short drift, then straightens out, and puts the engine through its paces down the road.
For all purposes, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a supercar that can run nose-to-nose with Italian brands like Ferrari. The sports car boasts a 650-horsepower engine optimized for the track, as evidenced by the model’s 7:13:90 lap around the Nurburgring.
We here at Dan Young GM are happy to see a new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 owner putting the supercar through its paces right out of the gate!
