Dodge Viper Driver Pays Price For Showboating

Dodge Viper Driver Pays Price For Showboating

On the interwebs, you will find footage of sports car owners hooning away from ‘Cars & Coffee’ meetups and them sometimes ending up hitting another car or ending up in a hedge.

Well, we have a new entrant into the Hall of Shame, and this one hails from the great American state of Tennessee.

The driver in a fourth-generation Dodge Viper convertible was leaving the C&C event in Knoxville (no, not Johnny), Tennessee, and when he put his foot down, he was a tad over-exuberant.

Okay, we’re being kind there – he was a Jackass.

The driver couldn’t handle the 600bhp produced from 8.4-litre V10, overcompensated and hit the trees standing to the side of the road, luckily missing the crowd at the roadside by inches.

On a dry road, with no traffic, it is almost certainly the driver’s fault and this video posted on Instagram pretty much sews up his guilt.

Such a shame the car got smashed up so bad.
