157 miles per hour. 8.6 seconds. Holy mother ov Russia. That is how fast this C5 Corvette ran the quarter mile at the Russian Drag Racing Championship in Crimea. In doing so, Andrey Mulenko set the record for the fastest rear wheel drive vehicle in CIS.
Mulenko jumps the Christmas tree with a reaction time of 0.649, and proceeds to rocket down the quarter mile, leaving the rival Toyota Chaser in the rearview. We’d love to list the specifications for you, but since they’re not provided at this time, we can tell you whatever is under the hood is fast. Really, really fast. To prove our point, by the time the average person ties their shoe, this C5 Corvette will have already run the quarter mile. Yep, its fast. And people say Corvettes are for senior citizens. DragTimes even offers an excellent replay cam of the action, and breaks down the stats for the viewer.
Take a minute to watch the run in the video below, and feast your eyes on the time splitting C5 Chevrolet Corvette. The only question we have left is does this Corvette run on unleaded or premium vodka?
