Here’s the Midengine Corvette Tooling Around Southwest Florida

I think it’s telling that all of us here at Jalopnik were going back-and-forth about whether or not to write up this story of a dealership speeding in a customer’s car, mostly because we’ve seen so many worse videos of dealership abuse.

Some Mad Genius Gave a Corvette Z06 a Flat-Plane Crank V8 and It Sounds Incredible

A Ferrari V8 sounds like a Ferrari V8, largely, because it has a flat-plane crankshaft setup. No other American V8 muscle cars, with the exception of the Voodoo V8 found in the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R, have flat-plane crank V8s.

Listen To the Best Noise Yet Out of the Mid-Engine Corvette

The mid-engine Corvette has been an enigma. We know it’ll be fast. We know the engine is behind the driver. That’s really about it.
