Callaway Corvette C16 Does 216 MPH!

Road & Track turns in this summary on the new Callaway Corvette C16: "we have no doubt there’s a market for this highly individualized, sharp-handling, meticulously outfitted supercar, one that tops out at a claimed 206 mph in anger but will still return 28 mpg when driven gently".

Regarding this Corvette‘s amazing velocity: "The flesh on your cheekbones ripples back toward your ears in a sort of g-induced perma-grin. Of course, this is second-nature to centrifuge-trained astronauts and rocket-sled test pilots, but this sort of acceleration is uncommon—and hugely addictive—in a road-going, street-licensed automobile".
