Taking a Corvette for a spin has new meaning for a couple of potential Corvette buyers in Georgia.
The two men were granted an unsupervised test drive of a 405 horsepower C5 Corvette Z06 from Maxie Price Chevrolet in Loganville, Georgia on the afternoon of Tuesday, Nov. 22nd. During the test drive, the unidentified driver lost control and hit a tree on Tom Brewer Road.
According to Local Loganville News, Georgia State Patrol Trooper First Class Cal Barton said that one of the occupants was taken by ambulance to Gwinnett Medical Center while the second occupant didn’t require transportation.
It is unclear whether the hospitalized person was the driver or the passenger. Our local source tells us that neither was an employee of Maxie Price Chevrolet. We’ve reached out to Maxie Price via email and a phone call prior to publication for confirmation and have not heard back.
Based on the photos, it looks like the Corvette is a complete loss after striking the tree and taking heavy damage to the front and engine compartment. That’s a shame as the 2003-04 Corvette Z06s are one of the bright spots for C5s that continue to hold their values.
