Video: Burnouts With A “Built” Barbie Corvette Power Wheel

While this is not the first time and certainly not the last time a hopped up children’s toy has caught our attention, this is one of the few times that we have seen children smoking the tires of a Power Wheels Corvette. The Barbie Corvette is lined up against Barbie’s other dream car, a Jeep, for what is certain to be spectacular display of slow speed racing. While no speed limits appeared to have been broken during this race, the little girl behind the wheel of the pink jeep lost the race to a tricked out Corvette. It should be expected that Jeep would face defeat by a Corvette, but this blue C5 children’s toy really put the hurt on the other car.

A pair of little girls enjoy cruising their modified Corvette on the residential street, despite the fact that this is a children’s toy Dad even gets in on the action. Yet another child, this one a bit older than the little girls, decides to take the ‘Vette for a spin. During this driving session the Power Wheels lives up to its name by actually smoking tire; the Barbie Corvette is actually capable of donuts, power slides and some decent burnouts. According the information provided with the YouTube video, this particular 24-volt Corvette is powered by a 250-watt motor with a scooter controller. Although the kiddie Corvette seems capable of scaring the child in passenger seat, a second motor (probably more powerful) is in the works for the car.
