Right now, no amount of baksheesh will get you behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Volt. Still, some people are getting paid to do exactly that. Oh, and they’re having a lot of fun doing it, too, from the looks of a new video from Chevrolet VoltAge. The people we’re talking about are GM employees like Murray Butler IV, who appears in the new video talking about his job testing the Volt’s suspension on GM’s test track at the Milford Proving Ground, specifically the Seven Sisters series of turns.
No matter what sort of bad news is happening to GM, it appears that driving fast(ish) in a new car never gets old. Butler says his job is, “like Disneyland” and that he can’t believe he’s drawing a check for what he does. OK, Butler is only going about 25-35 miles per hour over these turns, but we imagine that, once the early rounds of durability tests is completed, he’ll get to go a bit faster than that. Watch the video after the jump.
