The new mid-engine Corvette is definitely a world-beater.
Unfortunately, this new C8 Corvette Stingray took on the Dubai desert and apparently came up a loser, with its last journey being an unhappy trip to a junkyard on a rollback.
The front fascia of the car appears to have survived with a light layer of sand coating its Elkhart Lake Blue paint, but there’s damage virtually everywhere else.
No details are available about the crash, with the only news we’ve located on this TikTok post that shows just a brief glimpse of the ugly details.
Hopefully, the driver made it out of the car alive and well, but there’s definitely reason for concern for his well-being after his coupe apparently rolled, crushing the roof and knocking out the windshield and A-pillars. The rear end is just as traumatic-looking, with the bumper and taillights gone and the engine hatch badly damaged as well. The rear wheel on the passenger side is bent out of place, too.
We can see a glimpse of the Adrenaline Red interior through the open roof, and it looks like it might be the most salvageable part of the car remaining.
Hopefully, at least the 6.2-liter 495-horsepower V8 engine survived the ordeal, too, but who knows?
The 2020 Corvette Stingray first appeared in Middle Eastern dealerships in October, with models available in all three trim levels as well as in Z51 trim.
We hope the owner of this car is alive first and foremost, but we would like to see him get a replacement 2021. That could be hard with virtually every unit already accounted for.
Be careful out there, folks! We know Corvettes are referred to as toys oftentimes, but this is one toy that can land you in a world of hurt pretty quickly if you don’t use some caution when you’re behind the wheel.
