Manufacturers often perform “ride and drives” for consumers to get a taste of their offerings, giving consumers more of a promotional hands-on approach (and giving enthusiasts an opportunity to sample the wares). However, when you get the general public involved, you never know what’s going to happen. In this case, a C7 Corvette suffered severe front-end damage.
But lest you think a Corvette was in the hands of the wrong person, think again—it was an Impala that was the perpetrator. According to LSXtv.com, the Impala tester had “special needs” (hand controls, perhaps?) and, in the subsequent unfamiliarity, resulted in accidentally going in reverse and colliding with not one but two brand-new Stingrays.
There were no reports of injuries, with the driver “walking away” unscathed except for his/her pride. Wonder if these Stingrays will be on display with the sinkhole Corvettes?
