The Moment a Driver Speeds Off in a Brand-New $80,000 Corvette Z06 Sports Car… and Skids Right Off the Road Into a Tree

Well, there goes $80,000 down the drain. That was surely what this driver was thinking when he took his brand new Corvette Z06 out for a spin… and promptly crashed it right 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 (£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.

Thrown in a circle by the impact of the crash, the car’s bumper flies off and the gravel and sand is kicked up around it.

The filmmaker concludes the video by voicing his shock and making his way over towards the destroyed car.

It’s understandable — you get a new sports car, you want to see what it can do. But maybe next time, this guy will figure how to control a car with that much power before showing off for his friend.
