A white C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has been left with serious damage after crashing while leaving a late-night car meetup in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The entire scene was captured on camera by other attendees and initially shows the Z06 performing a burnout at a stop scene adjacent to the parking lot where the meetup was being held.
The driver then continues to pin the throttle through the intersection as the rear tires fight for grip. While the road surface appears quite good, the car’s 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of supercharged V8 fury is enough to kick the rear end loose.
With the car careening to the median strip, it appears that the driver overcorrects the slight wobble, steering the Z06 across a lane and into a row of trees by the side of the road.
While the actual moment of impact was only captured by a poor-quality camera, it was evidently quite a brutal crash and enough to severely damage the front-end. As a matter of fact, the front bumper was ripped from the car, leaving with it loads twisted and mangled wreckage across the street.
Thankfully the driver escaped without injury as the necessary airbags did deploy, as reported by Corvette Blogger. As for the car, it will be repairable but at a fairly heft price.
Looks like Mustang owners aren’t the only ones who need some pointers…
