Rod Saboury is the owner of a street-legal 1963 Corvette that is widely regarded as the world's fastest street-legal car after it was clocked at 210.54 mph at a drag strip. It boasts a 2,400 horsepower engine and can go 0-60 mph in only 1 second.
It is also capable of running the quarter mile in under 7 seconds, a feat which some in the hot-rod world claimed could not be done with his make and model. Saboury's ride made Car of the Year in this month's edition of Super Chevy magazine.
Jim Campisano, editor for the magazine, said: "Think of a plane getting catapulted off the deck of an aircraft carrier; it was insane. And the tires he uses are street legal tires. His car runs on pump gas."
