Corvette Z06 Crashes Into A House In West Virginia

The driver of this Chevrolet Corvette was lucky to have walked away from a horrific crash that left his supercar almost completely destroyed.

From the images posted on Facebook by Thomas Minnear, we can see that the Arctic White Corvette Z06, which appears to have been equipped with the Z07 Performance Package, rests sideways on the front porch of a house, in West Virginia.

There are more damages than we can count, from the passenger seat that was ripped off and thrown out, to a completely ruined front end. Various bits of this Vette, including the alternator and a wheel, together with the brake disc and caliper, were lying around in the vicinity, which shows just how violent the impact was.

Commentators also noticed that the summer tires aren’t exactly new either, which drastically affects the grip. Still, there’s no word on what exactly led to this horrific crash, but speed may have been a decisive factor.

The caption of the day goes to the man that posted these pictures, though: “I’d say his angel was riding shotgun”.

    Not very smart. Bald Summer Tires in Winter (Cold) Weather on a high power rear wheel drive vehicle. An angel was indeed riding shotgun.

      actually i think its just plain worn out tire, it also had uneven wear.

    Jesus…if you can afford a Z06 with an upgraded package…you should be able to afford to keep your tires updated. While this is clearly a case of poor maintenance & irresponsibility I am glad the driver was not seriously hurt.

    “supercar”………….?

    • rodriguez256

      I’d say so.

    • Moveon Libtards

      Yes, since it beats most exotics or is equal to them in performance numbers for less than half the price. Porsche and lower end Ferraris are routinley humilated by the Corvette Z06

      Absolutely it is. In what world is it not?

      Its performance is incredible.

        Is my 1000hp Turbo Civic a supercar too?

      • KSegg

        If I stick a V8 in a Miata, does that make it a supercar too?

        • Krisnadi Imam

          if honda makes a 1000HP civic and mazda that does the V8, right from the factory, i would call it supercar right away.

    Yeesh, those tires might as well be slicks.

    Sure the driver was lucky, but what about the banjo player?

    Bald tires and, likely, driving too fast for the conditions. Feel bad for the driver? Wish that the driver is OK? I say, he escaped Darwinism that day. I’m just glad he didn’t hit anyone else! (And, I am not wishing anything bad on anyone but sometimes, you pay for your actions)

    Country roads, take me home
    To the place I belong

    Not exactly new? Affects grip? These guys must have been freakin’ top detectives.
