Two brand new Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingrays have been recently crashed by a man in an Impala, who was taking the vehicle for a test drive.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray may have a 6-month waiting list for the regular version and almost a 1-year waiting list for the Z51 variant, but that doesn’t mean that incidents involving the car aren’t recorded. We’re long past away from the first crash of the new Corvette Stingray generation but accidents involving this vehicle don’t seem to come to a stop.
The most recent incident is actually involving not one but two units of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which have been crashed by an Impala. According to the guys at GT Spirit, the man driving the Impala was taking it for a test drive and he managed to hit the two sports cars when reversing the sedan. The Impala driver walked away with no fines or charges for the damage caused.
The new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has been unveiled back in January, this year, during the 2013 NAIAS in Detroit. The muscle car is taking its power from a 6.2 liter V8 engine, which is good for 450 HP and 450 lb-ft (609 Nm) of torque, which is mated to either a 7-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic. Power is sent to the rear wheels.
