Watch: Corvette Z06 vs. Wingsuit in the Swiss Alps

After a vague Instagram post last week, we said that we weren’t exactly sure what Corvette Racing driver Oliver Gavin was up to, but that 1)involved a Corvette, b)would be fast, and iii) would be cool. So cool, you used that word four times -Ed.

Now we know what it is, and we were right. Gavin is racing a flying squirrel man down the Klausen pass in Switzerland.

So can a 659 hp, 6.2L supercharged V8, track-tuned suspension, and carbon brakes beat the rapidly falling Jokke Sommer? Well, we won’t spoil it for you. But we will point out the not exactly subtle jab at Dodge and Ford at around one minute, 15 seconds in. And yes, that cameo is the Camaro Track concept that was an SS 1LE for Europe that was at last year’s Geneva show.
