Just in case your friends don't believe what a totally awesome driver you are, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette is getting an option that will let you prove it to them.

The car will be available with a built-in camera, microphone and computer that will record your drives and overlay a host of performance data onto the video that monitors speed, brake and accelerator position, and the vehicle's location on a race track.

The video can be viewed on the Corvette's eight-inch color touchscreen when the car is parked or downloaded to a computer. Drivers can record up to 13 hours of driving time.

General Motors developed the system with Cosworth, a British company that supplies the Corvette racing team's electronics system.

GM introduced the system Sunday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It didn't say how much the option will cost.

The 2015 Corvette goes on sale next fall.
