Vette Videos: C6 ZR1 vs Jeremy Clarkson – ZR1 WINS!!!

Dateline: 8.26.11
Mr. “I DON’T LIKE Corvettes” goes GAGA over the new ZR1!!
!

Here's how Clarkson remembers his C6 ZR1 experience in his dreams...

Watching Jeremy Clarkson reminds me of Dr. Greg House from the last TV series I watched, “House.” He’s blunt, brutal, but honest! In the past, he’s been brutally brutal on Corvettes, once describing the C6 he test drove as a “heaven and hell experience.” Then he closed out his report by saying, “It’s a funny car. I mean, it’s a Corvette, so obviously it’s rubbish. But, you can’t work out why.” Then he whispers, “I actually like it.”

THEN… He met the Z6 ZR1! You could say, “He got the Corvette religion!” Except that he keeps calling the car a “Zed-L-One.” (STOP THAT!) I think it was the 638-HP that converted him. After a few good snorts of Corvette horsepower and torque, Mr. I Don’t Like Anything says, “That is intoxicating!” (See, he’s GETTING it!) Then he fess’ up telling his bloke pal over the CB, “I’m starting to like this Corvette.” He wasn’t ready for the savagery of when he put his boot into it. After he lays down about an eight of a mile of rubber, poor Jeremy is in LOVE.

In the end he says, “Well done, fat man from Kentucky. This is a MASTERPIECE!” Fun stuff. Enjoy! – Scott

 PS – What I really like about this guy is that he has no reservation about kicking the back end of a car out and keeping his foot into it, tires smoking away, until the car gently straightens out. This guy has WAY too much fun.
