As part of the complete calibration process, automakers put their vehicles to work in the most extreme conditions, taking them all the way to the Arctic Circle or in the middle of the desert. High altitude test are also important, and the most common location to do that in the US is the Mt. Evans road, which can go as high as 14,240 feet above sea level.

Frequently used by car manufacturing companies, Mt. Evans road was recently visited by Chevrolet as well, who brought its new 2014 Corvette Stingray for high altitude checkups. Fortunately, the guys over at Fast Lane Car, who were also in the area, came across with the sportscar and posted the video on YouTube for all of us to see.

A few new Volkswagen models are also featured in the video uploaded below, but we bet the 30-second spot capturing the Corvette will seem much more interesting than everything else.
