Dodge Viper Crashes Following A Cars and Coffee Event In Texas

Cars and Coffee might as well be renamed Crashes and Coffee at this point as yet another accident has occurred following an event.

The latest incident happened in Houston, Texas and surprisingly didn’t involve a Ford Mustang. Instead, the victim was a Dodge Viper whose driver lost control under what appears to be moderate acceleration.

The end result isn’t pretty as the poor muscle car slams into the curb and rotates a full 180°. This caused some serious damage to the car as front suspension apparently collapsed and there are paint scuffs on the front bumper and side skirt.

The car was quickly towed away from the scene and police arrived shortly thereafter and probably had a less than jovial discussion with the owner.

Needless to say, the urge to show off isn’t worth it and has resulted in countless accidents which can sometimes injure bystanders. These accidents have also put pressure on event organizers and locations where the events take place.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Dodge Viper went out of production over the summer as the model couldn’t comply with federal safety regulations that require vehicles to be equipped with side curtain airbags.

    noooooo, not that car! obviously he doesn’t know how to handle the power. buy a prius dude.

    • Jay

      The viper was going through an identity complex and thought it was a mustang.

      • WG

        Or maybe that owner mistaken the viper for his other car (a mustang).

        • Jay

          That was my first thought too lol

  • TB

    Typical Dodge, hits a curb, car breaks, has to be flat bedded, yadda yadda yadda….

    Oh…loved the Blue Mustang simply driving away at the end…that’s just hilarious!!

    I don’t know who is the bigger dusche, the guy who wrecked the viper or the snowflakes continuing to cackle about it in the video.

    • Benjamin B.

      I feel sorry for the man… such embarrassment and shame

  • SteersUright

    Stupid move, but the giddy laughter that followed was so juvenile and unnecessary. Grow up dumb asses.

    • jsz00

      The driver is also juvenile

    Another Wayne Kerr bites the dust… Thanks for the entertainment Wayne.

  • pcurve

    Ouch… probably looking at $10-$15k in damage… and probably $5,000 in insurance surcharge over 3 years.

  • kachuks

    I’m guessing tow trucks hang out at these events knowing they’ll get a customer eventually.

  • somehow, wreckedexotics get this car first.

    Cars and Coffee ?

    Piston Broke while a Tesla tootles by………

  • karmat

    It sure broke loose easy. Maybe it’s a 2012 with dried out tires?…or maybe he sprayed a ton of tire shine on them.

  • Dennis Scipio

    Lmao, I thought the title said Cars and Covfefe event.

    • Moveon Libtards

      Would have been awesome if it was.

  • Bash

    What was Tesla doing there?

  • jsz00

    This is why kids shouldn’t have nice things. Police going to charge him with reckless driving.

  • dawyer

    Another one of most examples prove that’s why drag race is indispensable in america, those cars is extremely difficult to drive straight. First thing first, surmount this and have a basic condition to try a racing curve.

    • Moveon Libtards

      Please speak English…

  • Moveon Libtards

    Just look at the two driving it. Says it all.

  • Knotmyrealname

    R10, Mustang: 1, Viper: 0

  • Pedro Pereira

    That’s some serious curb rash.

  • Donal Maher

    As I stated on bookface – Cars, Coffee and Compensation.
    These idiots who attempt to show off give genuine car enthusiasts a bad name.
    What’s wrong with showing up, enjoying each others cars, and then just, you know, driving away?!
    If you want to be a hero, try it on a track or empty lot, not a public road with kerbs, other cars and crowds of camera wielding pedestrians standing by.
    Morons.

    It’s also worth mentioning that the Dodge Viper went out of production over the summer as the model couldn’t comply with federal safety regulations that require vehicles to be equipped with side curtain airbags.

    And why is that worth mentioning? I mean besides the fact that you’d have to live under a rock to not know it.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    And what is it with all these little tool bags running up with cell phone cameras? Future paparazzi…

  • Stephen G

    Unfortunately this has become representative of the people that now frequent the Cars and Coffee events. In the last few years the venue I attend most frequently has gone from a nice mix of interesting cars to shLt load of trashed 10 year old imports with cannons. Between the burnt oil, exhaust reverb in the air it makes a person not want to attend. Too bad.

  • nastinupe

    Why are you at a car event if you enjoy seeing people wreck their own cars? It’s like they admire yet hate the owners. It’s funny how the driver gets out the car with the look of shame on his face like “yeah, I’m that dude”. He just had to get out of the way of the gawkers taking pictures of his wrecked car.

  • Trackhacker

    Honestly, all these new American muscle cars are just too much for the street. Like these types of cars should only be sold to race car drivers cause they have way too much power.

  • Emoto

    Am I the only one who was cringing at the application of the floor jack by the towing guys?

  • Mafio

    Houston: a lot of money, a lot of cars and very few people who can drive.

  • Benjamin B.

    He went full mustang driver

  • Benjamin B.

    His other car is a Ford Mustang

  • Benjamin B.

    I feel sorry for the driver
