A young rapper by the name of Blueface has filmed himself driving his C8 Corvette Stingray at over 150 mph (241 km/h).
The clip in question was reposted on Instagram by saycheesetv and shows the rapper driving the mid-engined sports car with one hand on the steering wheel while his other hand holds his smartphone that records the whole thing.
It is unclear where exactly in the U.S. the video was filmed, but as the clip shows, the ‘Vette hit a top speed of 157 mph (252 km/h).
It doesn’t take a genius to know that driving at speeds like these on a public road other than an unrestricted section of the German Autobahn is both illegal and dangerous. It is even more dangerous to drive at such speeds with one hand barely clasping the top of the wheel…
Sure, the C8 Corvette may look stable at these speeds, but if the car were to hit a bump, for instance, the rapper would have a hard time keeping it under control. It’s also impossible to predict what cars around you are going to do, further adding to the danger.
As a side note, you may also notice the redline of this Corvette is set at 4,000 rpm either because either the car is still in its break-in period or the engine isn’t warmed up yet. Either way, disregarding the limiter is not the smart thing to do.
