The best news is that no one was injured Sunday when a man crashed a stolen red C7 convertible after leading police on a chase that reached speeds of 130 mph.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the Corvette Stingray, which suffered major front end damage after catching fire following the crash.

The three-county crime spree actually started with the suspect behind the wheel of a truck in Kendall County, Texas, but authorities say the man ditched that vehicle and stole the Stingray at gunpoint and started a house fire.

The FIA’s World Endurance Championship kicks off the 2015 season this weekend at the Silverstone Circuit in England and a Corvette C7.R campaigned by Larbre Competition will be making its debut in the GTE-AM class.
