Corvette Racer Gives His Mom a Ride at 0-60 in 4.5 Seconds
July 18, 2011
It's always nice for guys to give their mom a ride, whether it's to the store, to church, or just for a quick Sunday brunch. It would really rock if you could give her a ride in a car that moves so fast, it can melt her Botox-infused face clean off.
Stunt bike rider and racer Darius Khashabi gave his mom just a ride, around the Laguna Seca raceway in Monterey, California in a racing-grade Corvette Z06. He also set up a couple of hidden cameras on the dashboard to capture her girly screams for the enjoyment of gearhead schadenfreude enthusiasts everywhere and posted the harrowing 12 minutes of sharp turns and burnt rubber straightaways on his YouTube account.
The best part isn't watching this poor woman beg for mercy from the speed gods or scream like a stuck pig as her mind conjures up images of twisted metal being thrown about the track. The best is at the end when she sighs a heavy breath of relief that it's all over and says she's ready for a beer. I'm thinking of putting myself up for adoption (sorry Mom, if you want me back, buy me a Bugatti).
