We’ve been visiting the YouTube channel of The Stradman daily, looking for new content since James took delivery of his Accelerate Yellow 2023 Corvette Z06 coupe last week in Pennsylvania. Last night, he dropped his second video featuring America’s newest supercar while driving back to his home base in Utah.
The video opens with him and his girl in Ohio, and the duo makes a visit to his friends at the Triple F Car Collection. The house is impressive as it looks like a European castle, but for us, the garage is unbelievably amazing. When the doors are opened, there sits a $5 million Bugatti Chiron Super Sport on a turntable. Also inside are a ton of McLarens, a Ferrari, and we did catch sight of a Silver 1963 Split Window.
The Stradman is handed the keys to the Chiron, and he takes the amazing car out for a quick spin. Talk about a nerve-wracking experience. As the Stradman gives it some go juice, he says he feels the rear wheels break traction, so he does the smart move and immediately turns the car around and heads back to the garage.
It’s at this point that he reveals he received an email from a “huge Chevrolet collector” who has offered him $110,000 over the $173,000 the YouTuber paid for the car. That’s $283,000 for a pre-owned Chevy! James says if he accepts that offer, it means no longer driving the car, and he has plans to hit the dragstrip and do some full sends once he hits the 500-mile break-in period.
The Triple F Collection also maintains its own raceway, and as the Stradman drives through the gates, he notes his mileage on the car is at 499! After a quick trip around the block, he hits the 500-mile mark…and nothing happens! Those who have watched these moments know that the unlocking of the cars potential might take just a bit over 500 miles, so he was a bit perplexed, but after a pause, he comes back and sees that his tach is now showing the 8600 redline.
After making a couple of launches to try the warm up the wheels, the Stradman lines up against an AWD Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae. James is saying the temps are only 25 degrees, and he can’t really put down the power to the pavement so he’s not feeling all that great about the matchup, and he ends up taking the L. Afterwards, we see him arriving in Chicago where they will spend the night.
Finally, James revisits the crazy offer to sell the car, but he says he has too many plans for it and so it’s a no deal.
