This Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray must have been traveling at a high velocity to experience the kind of damage we are looking at from these pictures that were recently posted on reddit.
Maybe this driver should have stuck with the fancy technology that Chevrolet has built into the seventh-generation Corvette.
Instead, he turned the traction control off and over corrected as he was drifting around a corner heading into a straightaway.
The Stingray started doing a zig-zag dance, slid sideways into barriers, and wound up on its passenger side, no doubt inflicting thousands of dollars in damage.
Here’s a sight most Corvette enthusiasts don’t like to see.
This is the first time we’ve seen a 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible out in public wearing the new Daytona Orange Sunrise. Unfortunately, the 650-hp super car made somewhat of a spectacle of itself by losing control on wet roads and taking out another vehicle on its way to a ditch on I-94 in Jackson, Michigan over the weekend.

It’s hard to look on the bright side when the owners of a 1991 fully restored Corvette are standing there, looking at the fire-ravaged remains of their pride and joy.
But for Chad and Carrie Wendel of Morristown, Minn., the fire that broke out last Thursday morning could have been much worse.
Some Corvette accidents are the result of driver error while others are caused by careless drivers. This Corvette appears to have been claimed by a mechanical failure. The driver of the red C6 Z06 walked away last week after his car lost the right rear wheel and rolled over in northern Pennsylvania.
