Anti-Lock Braking Power You Can Grade On A Curve.
You’re driving 55 MPH on a rain-slick curve. Suddenly the unexpected: you stand on the brake pedal and steer to stay in your lane. You might expect Europe’s most exotic cars to handle such a crisis effortlessly. Yet for all its awesome straight-line braking ability, Ferrari 308 GTSi failed to negotiate a 150-foot radius curve at maximum braking in USAC-certified testing. Lamborghini Countach failed. Lotus Esprit Turbo failed. Porsche 944 failed. Only the 1986 Corvette demonstrated the ability to steer and stop in these conditions at the same time. Only Corvette made the turn while coming to a controlled stop. When conditions turn foul, Corvette’s new computerized Bosch ABS II anti-lock braking system is designed to help improve a driver’s ability to simultaneously brake and steer out of trouble. Why does the Corvette feature the world’s most advanced braking technology? Because a world-class champion should give you the edge in an emergency.
