This is Why You Don't Race Your Corvette on the Streets

The driver of this 1998 Corvette was allegedly racing another vehicle (article says Corvette, we heard Mustang) in Long Beach. Apparently a street light turned red and the other car stopped, but the Corvette blew the light at 100 mph, hitting a Toyota Cressida which sheered it in half. Miraculously, no one was seriously injured in the crash. No charges were filed at the scene against the Corvette driver, but police are still investigating.

[VIDEO] Jay Leno Puts His Corvette Z06 on Real Car Simulator

Jay Leno took his C5 Corvette Z06 for a spin the other day without ever leaving the confines of his garage. How’d he do that, you ask? He invited the gurus from Drag Tag Simulations to Jay Leno’s Garage who set up a virtual driving environment that is part dyno, part video game. With his Yellow Corvette Z06 strapped to the platform, Jay was able to cruise the virtual streets and even got in some quarter mile runs. Check out the video after the jump.

Corvettes on eBay: “Murdered Out” 2004 Corvette Z06

Corvettes on eBay: Murdered Out 2004 Corvette Z06

One of the things I love about Corvettes is that you can learn something new every day about them as well as how they fit it to all different niches of America’s car culture in general. For me, today’s lesson comes from the term “Murdered Out” which the Urban Dictionary describes as a vehicle that is black with black wheels and looks very intimidating. So I think you’ll agree this 2004 Matte-Black Corvette Z06 easily fits that description.

Battlestar Galactica C5 Corvette is One Hot Mess

Battlestar Galactica C5 Corvette is One Hot Mess

The builder of this hot mess that was once a C5 Corvette Convertible appears to have spared no expense in bringing his vision of the sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica to the roads of Istanbul, Turkey. With all that custom body work, the massive wing held down by 20 bolts, and the Zonda-style exhaust, the finishing touch is the Battlestar Galactia sticker on the rear. Now, if I remember the TV show correctly, Apollo and Starbuck flew “Vipers” but why get hung up on semantics. Those with weak constitutions or acid reflux issues should turn away now.
