In the video, the amount of power is clearly evident as the rear steps out at 80 mph momentarily. Surely, it's not an easy car to tame.

HighTechCorvette has released a new version of an old video showing the view of a 1500hp (1118 kW / 1520 PS) twin turbo C6 Corvette going flat out from 50 mph (80 km/h) to just over 170 mph (274 km/h) in about 10 seconds.

Previously, the same Corvette received a bit of coverage when a video shot from the perspective of the Dodge Viper behind it went viral over the summer (see video below).

In the videos the amount of power is clearly evident as the rear steps out at 80 mph momentarily. Surely, it's not an easy car to tame.

High Tech Corvette notes that, "The speed is recorded with GPS, so it's not super accurate, if anything the actual speed is faster than it is reading."
