Brand new Chevy Corvette Stingray gets crashed

A brand new unit of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has been recently crashed in Detroit after speed had probably something to do with it, combined with the driver’s lack of experience.

Exotic, expensive and powerful vehicles seem to get crashed almost daily across the globe and if some of them get by unnoticed, others are seen by everyone, like the example in this article. The North American supercar has been found sitting in the Insurance Auto Auctions lot, in Detroit, with a destroyed front fascia and driver’s side. We have no idea what happed to it but according to its odometer, it has only travelled for 904 km (562 miles).

The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray generation should have been originally introduced back in 2010, but it was delayed three years. The model has 6.2 liter LT1 V8 engine under its hood, which is producing either 455 HP (339 kW) or 460 HP (340 kW) with the optional performance exhaust. The unit is mated to a seven-speed manual, or to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is sending power to the rear-wheel drive. The new Corvette generation has been officially unveiled back in 2013, and it has even made its debut in Europe.
