#22- C7 Z06 Crashes Into A Tree Going In A Straight Line
At $80,000, the C7 Z06 is one of the most coveted American sportscars anyone can own. It looks like this owner didn’t respect a set of cold tires and the amount of force that the Z06’s Supercharged LT4 can produce from a standstill. This Z06 owner manages to crash his 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 going in a straight line. This video makes our list for being both sad and infuriating to watch.
One of the first thing an owner does when purchasing this amount of horsepower is figuring out how to engage launch control. This owner engages launch control, nails the accelerator and dumps the clutch. The Z06 with the Z07 performance package and stage 3 aero kit leaps off the line and takes off down the road.
But after the shift into second gear, for some odd reason the Z06 takes a sharp right turn into some trees causing massive damage to the front end of this Z06. The response from the cameraman is the classic set of expletives anyone would have said in that moment. We also happened to come across a slow-motion version of the crash with extra emphasis at the crucial moment.
