Video Feature: Corvettes at Sebring in 1957

By December 30, 2010

Follow me on:

The year was 1957, and Zora Arkus-Duntov's plan to turn the boulevard-cruising Corvette into a proper sports car was right on track. And the next step was to take the Corvettes to the annual 12 Hours of Sebring race to face down the Ferraris, Alfa-Romeos, Jaguars, and other hot sports cars of the day.

This 13-minute video (unearthed by our friends at Terra.com) features Corvette engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov mixing with drivers such as Stirling Moss, Juan-Manuel Fangio, Piero Taruffi, and others as the Corvette team turns up with a new fuel injected 'Vette to show the world that they could race with the best and win.
