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…
