No, we didn’t mean it the other way around. The 2014 Corvette Stingray recently performed test drives on human subjects. We know it sounds crazy, but welcome to the world of reverse test drives, where five unique drivers were put behind the wheel of the all-new Stingray outfitted with biometric sensors used to track vital activities.

Each driver wore a Body Guardian Bluetooth-enabled device which tracked vitals in real time as well as a cap that has multiple electrodes around the skull to measure the electrical stimuli that’s coming from all different regions of the brain, and many had never even sat behind the wheel of a Corvette.

“You can’t fake it,” said Dr. Ken Steele, “That’s the beautiful thing, you just can’t fake it.”

“It’s the perfect blend of muscle and elegance,” said one of the test drivers, Phillip Cooley. Cooley is an entrepreneur and restaurateur whose heart rate spiked to 157 during the test drive. He hit a top speed of 105.3mph and had a lap time of 1:27. Fast Lane calls the new Corvette “a beautiful weapon against the ordinary,” and we couldn’t describe it better ourselves. Check out the videos below and let us know what you think. Would you be down for a reverse test drive?
