In the race, Joe Biden drove his 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible to 190 km/h. His rival was the son of former US Secretary of State Colin Powell.
Joe Biden demonstrated his driving skills on camera. The President of the United States became a guest of the show “Jay Leno's Garage”, where he took part in a street race. Video posted by CNBC.
Joe Biden is an experienced car enthusiast. He came to shoot with Jay Leno in his own car – a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. He received this 350-horsepower convertible as a wedding present from his father, who was a Chevrolet dealer. The sports car has been restored and looks like new.
It was on this car that the President of the United States took part in drag racing, and his rival was the son of former Secretary of State Colin Powell in a newer 455-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette C7. At the finish of the sprint race, Joe Biden's car accelerated to 190 km/h, but he still lost the race.
In addition, the US president tested an unusual 1978 Ford F-100 pickup truck. Instead of a gasoline engine, the car was equipped with a 480-horsepower electric installation from the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT crossover, and such a tuning kit has already gone on sale and is available to everyone. Joe Biden appreciated the silence of the engines and the good acceleration of the electric car, and also burned the tires a little.
The US President is an active supporter of electric vehicles and at one time tested the first Hummer electric pickup truck. At the same time, he is a fan of petrol Corvette. Biden loves to drive, but admitted that security did not allow him to drive.
