Done in by not having enough airbags.
The Corvette now reigns as America’s only supercar. But there used to be two American supercars — the second one being the Dodge Viper.
More outrageous, certainly.
An 8.4 liter V10 (and 600 horsepower) rather than a 6.2 liter V8 (and 460 hp) paired only with a manual transmission. Not just anyone could drive a Viper. Almost anyone can drive a Corvette. And not just because it is available with an automatic. The Corvette you can drive to work, in traffic. It puts up with this sort of duty as agreeably as a Camry.
