Chevrolet Corvette StingRay Racer Concept ’59

American cars are not usually known for looking pretty. They are mostly hardcore, in-your-face, ‘merica! type of looking cars. However, this one is definitely one of the different ones. It is truly gorgeous. The regular old-school Stingray looks nice with all of its curves, but it is a whole new level with this one. Without the roof and the additional scoops, vents, and curves just make this car look phenomenal. I didn’t fully realize this until I took it to a night time track and watched the replay. The reflections are just amazing and you will always get a great shot.

As far as being a drift car goes it definitely matches the looks. This is not one for the first timers who don’t know what they are doing, though. It can spin out and has a lot of power, but if you know what you are doing the car is pretty great. It currently holds my second highest score as Tsukuba, which is extremely impressive considering I test all my drift cars there. Only tips I have for it is watch your gas as you don’t need too much, usually. Also, shift to lower gears before exiting corners. I usually am to be in 2nd for small corners because if you stay in 3rd you won’t have enough low-end power to get up to speeds quick enough.
