Another C7 Crash

The C7's haven't even hit the streets yet and there's already been 2 accidents




Here's the first accident

I'd assume this was purely wrong place wrong time, based on what I see. Not a sign that the car is hard to handle or anything, like the first one could turn into if there were more. Frankly the first one is understandable considering they are purposely pushing the cars, and just because someone is a suspension engineer doesn't mean they are professional drivers. I wouldn't take this as a sign of anything, just bad luck.

Doesn't look like anyone was hurt in both as well might be a good sign showing how safe the car is lol

The second accident looks like a full size Lincoln Town Car slammed into the side of the Stingray. The Stingray appears to have survived that crash fairly well. Looks like a tough car. I guess that rigid frame helps quite a bit.

When you compare it to the Town Car.. I agree.

The Corvette looks like it got pushed sideways completely through the intersection. A scary ride I'm sure.
