  • First C8 crash via CorvetteBlogger

    https://www.corvetteblogger.com/2019...ngray-crashes/

    This morning we wake up to find the first 2020 Corvette Stingray accident has occurred as Chevrolet continues to validate the cars prior to production starting in December.



    We came across the photo that was posted to Facebook via Wrecked Muscle Cars and Classics from Adam Newman and there is a description of the crash. Props to the original photographer who wasn’t named in the post:

    The first of I’m sure many 2020 Corvette Stingray wrecked on the road. Wife spotted on her drive to Yosemite here in Ca. The car was apart of a rally with GoPros mounted on the vehicle. Took a wide turn and the rear wheel off an SUV with a family in it heading opposite direction around a turn.

    Sounds like this Elkhart Lake Blue Corvette was part of the caravan of 2020 Corvettes we wrote about earlier this week that is testing out west. Those aren’t GoPros on the cars, they are some sort of monitoring or testing equipment that each of those cars we saw had mounted on the passenger side of the roof.

      It was overdue. I am now waiting for the first car destroyed in a showroom when a dealership employee goes to move the car, loses control, and it crashes into a wall.

            Yikes. Hard enough hit to set off the airbags. Hope everyone is OK.

            Wonder if the PDR was in it's default video capture mode?

                      I've told my children time and again that the #1 attitude in life is enthusiasm, and those guys are a prime example. I started watching only a year or so ago with sub-500,000 subs. Now close to 1.5M. That's serious YouTube territory for a car channel.

                      They'd have that car back to OEM in no time.

                        Pretty sure it was sarcasm based on an actual event with a C7 a few years ago. https://www.corvetteblogger.com/2015...de-dealership/

                            So three vehicles involved. I wonder if the 'vette was involved in the initial crash, or if the other two collided first and one of them ended up in the path of the C8.
