Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame recently got some seat time in a Chevy Corvette Z06 and was largely impressed with General Motor's best Vette effort to date. In this video Clarkson races the Z06 against the gasoline it runs on (after igniting a strip of it, of course) and leaves kilometers of the car's rear rubber on the track. Aside from the Yankee accent of the sat nav voice, Clarkson felt it was one of the most un-American American cars he'd ever driven, and it costs nearly 100,000 pounds less than the virtually similar Ferrari 575. In the hands of the Stig the Z06 ranked 12th on the Top Gear Power Lap list with a lap time of 1:22.40, which puts it ahead of the Lamborghini Murcielago and Pagani Zonda. Wait'll they drive the Blue Devil!

Thanks Ed for tip!
