Corvette driver sends text messages at 160 mph!

Street racing for top speed in a C6 Corvette Z06 is something to be admired. Running through the hills of what looks to be one of the interior plain states, this C6 Corvette Z06 hit 196 miles per hour in about 30 seconds from a 40 mile per hour roll. The beauty of American muscle allows for extreme amounts of torque to be transferred directly to the ground and boost the driver and occupant to mind blowing speeds in just seconds. Mods on this vehicle are unknown, but it's safe to estimate from the sound that there's at least a cat back exhaust, intake, and possible tune. The real beauty isn't the high speed pull, but the fact the driver used his cell phone to send text messages at 160 mph!

Proving the stability of the C6 Corvette, operation of a vehicle at 160 miles per hour with just one hand while using a cell phone to send text messages is incredibly dangerous. Just as the driver picks up his phone, a car passes in the oncoming lane! This is very dangerous but at the same time establishes a certain amount of credibility for the C6 Z06. The Corvette's suspension setup is ideal for high speed stability with short/long arm (SLA) double wishbone, cast aluminum upper & lower control arms,  transverse mounted composite leaf spring, monotube shock absorber, and that famous Corvette electronic traction control. Aside from suspension, the Corvette is incredibly balanced thanks to a rear mounted transmission and differential. If it's stability at high speeds you desire, look no further than the C6 Corvette Z06.
