Whoops! Moment Driver Speeds Off in Brand New $80,000 Corvette Z06… And Skids Straight Off The Road 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 tire 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 (£51,900), 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.

Since being uploaded to YouTube by Jacob Przyojski, who noted in the video description that the car is brand new, the clip has received numerous comments.

‘Not sure what mode the driver had the car in (sport, track 1-5, everything turned off, launch mode) but if he fully turned off traction control and / or stability control then he better know what he is doing when launching a 650 HP beast.’

Whoops. It can take some time to get accustomed to how a new car handles – so maybe next time take that into account.
