[SAVE THE STINGRAYS] Is this the Worst C7 Corvette Crash Yet?

[SAVE THE STINGRAYS] Is this the Worst C7 Corvette Crash Yet?

Looking at the pile of twisted metal and body panels, it’s hard to believe that this was once a 2014 Corvette Stingray. After reviewing the photos from the Insurance Auto Auctions website, this has got to be the worst post-crash Corvette we’ve seen and believe us, we’ve seen a lot of them.

The Arctic White pile of parts is not quite ready for sale yet. The IAA listing says the car was lost in a collision with damage primary listed as “All Over” with secondary damage to the suspension. Considering that the drivers side front wheel is completely missing must have been a dead giveaway. The engine appears to be damaged as well and won’t start but interestingly, the driver and passenger airbags are still intact.

Before it met its doom, this Corvette was nicely appointed with the Z51 Performance Package and a 3LT Ebony interior. The front drivers side wheel is gone, but another picture from the rear shows it wearing black wheels. The mileage is listed as unknown as the odometer is broken.

The VIN on the car ends in 1226 which means that it was an early production model that was completed during the first month or so of production. That’s a shame too as it means the owner waited months and months after ordering to be among the first to own the Stingray. Now he’s one of the first to actually total a Stingray.

Check out these pictures from the IAA website:

We sincerely hope the driver is okay following the massive accident that took out the new Corvette. While the latest generation of America’s favorite sports car is a lot of fun to drive, we just hope everyone can do so safely and without damaging any more Stingrays!
