This remote-controlled Chevy Corvette and the mastermind behind its creation drives us crazy. With a top speed of 186 miles per hour and a 400 horsepower v8 engine under the hood, this 2006 c6 Corvette is already impressive.
Bjorn Harms is a Dutch computer technician and creator of the RC Corvette. Bjorn had a special set of requirements; it had to be a cool car; something sporty or fast. None of the controls could be visible. Like other RC cars, it needed a fail-safe, for obvious reasons.
But, most importantly, it had to still function as his daily driver. The way the system works is considered as pretty simple. They stole all different kind of pro body circles on the controls of the car. You select the proble, the braking, the steering and shifter. All those circles are booked up to a custom control unit.
It also houses the motor controllers and the receivers. The receivers communicate with the transmitter, so when one hits the throttle on the transmitter, the receiver receives the signal and sends the signal to the brothels of the call.
With authority, the entire building process took the yarn around one year to complete and cost him just over $4,000. With all the modifications, he made, Jorn didn’t forget about safety range.
This isn’t the only car Bjorn has modified to be remote-controlled. He did the same exact transformation to an original DeLorean dmc-12. The same car featured in Back to the Future.
Bjorn started working on the DeLorean short after the completion of the RC Corvette and the owner contacted him on Facebook news. Bjorn even converted a customer’s Pontiac Trans Am that he was modifying to resemble the vehicle featured in the 1980s TV series Knight Rider.
After building three full-sized remote-controlled cars, Bjorn doesn’t plan on stopping and he has some large aspirations for the future.
