Chevrolet Corvette Z06
This is the dramatic moment the owner of a brand new Chevrolet sports car skidded off the road and ploughed into a tree. Believed to have been shot in North America, the video was posted on YouTube and shows the driver sat behind the wheel of an immaculate Corvette Z06. A voice then instructs the driver to ‘go ahead’ and suddenly the red C7 pulls away – the momentary wheel spin leaves a small puff of tyre smoke behind it. The exhaust pipes shudder as the car, which has a power output of 650bhp, accelerates and makes its way down the road. With the ability to go from 0 to 60mph in just under three seconds, the car continues to pick up speed as the driver shifts into second gear. But suddenly disaster strikes and the Corvette, which retails with a starting price of $79,995 , skids off the road and towards the bushes. The brake lights can be seen coming on as the driver tries to rectify the mistake. But the sports car continues to veer into the greenery where it has a violent head-on collision with what appears to be a tree.
