Video: Motor Trend pits the Corvette ZR1 against an F/A-18 Hornet Jet

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 vs. F/A-18 Hornet Jet

We love our Top Gear – a lot. We’ll do anything to watch the most recent episodes whether it means jumping on YouTube and sorting our search results by “Relevance” or doing the whole bit torrent thing.

One of our all time favorite segments was when Hammond raced a Bugatti Veyron against a fighter jet. Apparently, the folks over at Motor Trend were the first to pull the stung when they drag-raced a Corvette against a jet back in 1986.

Editor at Large Arthur St. Antoine is now back with the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR aka Blue Devil, which he will race against at F/A-18 Hornet jet aka Blue Angel.

You can check out the video after the jump and if you want to get through the whole GM plug about how amazing the ZR1 is – forward 8 minutes into the video.
