We have no doubt that somewhere in Sweden is a very sad Corvette enthusiast who was expecting to take delivery of a new C7 Corvette Z06. Instead of receiving that happy call from the dealer, he may have been told there might be a “slight delay” with his delivery.
Last Friday our friend Mike Furman tipped us to this heartwrenching scene as workers were cleaning up after a transporter carrying the Corvette Z06 (identified by its black aluminum wheels) and other high-end vehicles turned over on a snowy country road has it was headed for the city of Köpings.
A video from the Swedish news website SVT.se show the transporter’s trailer back on the road, with one side appearing to be damaged while the vehicles remaining on the trailer were caked in with snow and dirt. In the field next to the road was a Camaro and the Corvette Z06 both lying upside down on their roofs.
A large crane was dispatched to the accident scene and workers flipped both cars by putting straps on the two wheels furthest from the road and then rolling them back over so they came to rest with their wheels on the ground.
