Corvette Ad from 12 Hours of Sebring: Asked to Dial-Down ZR1 'Just to be Fair'


Chevy's had some entertaining commercials as of late, from a memorable Super Bowl spot for the new Camaro this year, to last year's 'America still builds rockets' Corvette ad. Well, the boys at Chevy's marketing agency quietly introduced a new ad for the 'Vette over the weekend during the 12 Hours of Sebring race.

In case you missed it, the ad touts the Corvette ZR1′s capability and awesome horsepower, commenting that in order to keep things fair on the track when competing with Porsches and Ferraris, they were asked to dial-down the power 168-hp to be exact.

Unfortunately for Chevy, they only managed to place third and fourth in class, and it wasn't a Porsche or Ferrari who beat them, but a BMW.

Video after the jump.
