Corvette Becomes V8 Barbecue After 150mph Street Race Goes Badly Wrong

Corvette Becomes V8 Barbecue After 150mph Street Race Goes Badly Wrong

Street racing is dangerous, pointless and really quite illegal.

Now, we love a sports car thrash as much as the next person, but not on a speed-restricted motorway bustling with traffic. It isn’t fun or safe, just moronic.

These two Corvette drivers clearly didn’t grasp this, though, and proceed to street-race their modified beasts, reaching 150mph.

The car from which the camera is filming is no ordinary Corvette. In fact, it’s been tuned to 800bhp, making it a tricky animal to handle.

And predictably in these situations, things go terribly wrong terribly quickly.

Hitting a bump in the road surface, the Corvette is thrown into a tank-slapper and smashes head-first into the central reservation.

Thirty seconds after the accident, which happened in the USA, the car bursts into flames, burning to a plasticky crisp. And that, as they say, was that.

Fortunately, nobody was hurt. The owner’s wallet, on the other hand…
