This year seems like it doesn’t want to end without another Corvette crashing.
A post by William Wyatt in the Facebook group Wrecked Muscle Cars And Classics shows a 2020 Corvette Stingray (with a VIN #3031) lying in pieces at the back of the Chevy C50 flatbed truck. This Vette has a unique dark blue shade– Elkhart Lake Blue. Just looking at how smashed the car was, it is guaranteed that the accident was horrible.
Fortunately, the mangled and tangled Stingray did keep its passengers safe–a proof that this supercar has enough durability to protect its users from deadly collisions like this.
With only 532 miles on its clock, the said Stingray crashed while running 115 miles per hour. Talk about excessive speeding! Keep in mind that on the first 500 miles of Stingray, the car is limited to 4,5000 RPM. Furthermore, its torque is reduced to 25% to 30% on its first and second gears. Accordingly, restricting torque is essential to reduce break-in wear.
This wreck would have sent the idea that its prized engine V8 6.2-liter engine did not survive the crash. But it did. Of course, that’s not a surprise, considering that Chevrolet engines are engineered to withstand impacts and other unfortunate encounters.
It is thought that this Elkhart Lake Blue Stingray was the 2LT auctioned in Copart last November 20, with a starting price of around $70,000. It is a non-Z51 unit that comes with red leather upholstery and black painted wheels.
