Have you ever almost spun your Corvette out, but were able to correct the steering rapidly and your Corvette saved the day? Anyone that owns a Corvette can tell you the car has lifesaving handling capabilities that far exceed the average automobile, but did you know a Corvette can be submerged in deep floodwaters and keep running? Here’s a pretty cool video to rub in the noses of the people that like to call Corvettes fiberglass coffins. It’s a C5 Corvette driving through deep floodwaters breaking over its hood in waves and it keeps on running.

The flashflood took place in Michigan on I-696, the Walter Reuther freeway that runs through Detroit’s suburbs. The driver of the yellow C5 Corvette was on his way home from work when the deluge hit. There were cars around him that stalled out when they either lost ignition or sucked in water and died, but as you can see from the video the Corvette couldn’t be stopped.

As, an added bonus Corvette interiors and floors can be flooded with water, but will not rust thanks to the miracle of space-age fiberglass. Just be sure to completely remove all of the carpet and let it dry or black mold will form and mushrooms will grow.
