Custom exhausts come in all shape and sizes, but we’ve recently come across one that seems to be more of a machine gun than an engine-related item. We’re talking about the exhaust of the C5 Corvette in the adjacent street racing video, which shoots flames like it wants to make sure there will be no tomorrow.
We don’t know the tech details of the car, but this is a ‘Vette with a turbocharged engine. Judging by the exhaust behavior in the clip, we don’t think the driver ever has turbo lag issues - the thing pops and spits fire on a regular basis.

The video shows the C5 Corvette, with its custom side exhaust, street racing a Fox-body Mustang, as well as a motorcycle. There’s also a C6 Corvette camera car, which may or may not count as an opponent.

The violent C5 takes the lead in the four-wheeled department, but the bike manages to get ahead of it. Still, we think the Corvette deserves our attention a bit more than the motorcycle...
