Vice President Joe Biden says the corvette Z06 is the "one overwhelming reason why not to run for president." (Reuters)

The United Auto Workers Union got a little taste of Joe Biden being Joe Biden on Wednesday, when the vice president took a little time out to pitch the American people on the Chevrolet Corvette.

"I'm serious, it's the best buy in America," Biden said. "You know, Motor Trend says it snaps back to center and lets you hold the car through any corner. I can hardly wait!"

Biden then suggested that the newly unveiled "supercar" might sway him against running for president in 2016.

"Everyone wants to know whether I'm going to run for president," he said. "There's a lot of reasons to run for president, but there's one overwhelming reason not to run for president: I'd like to get that Z06 with zero to 60 in 3.4 seconds!"
