Want to see an imbecile nearly wreck a Corvette in a peeing contest against a BMW M3? Look no further.
The events captured in this video from YouTube user Sloan MacK take place at a traffic light in Atlanta, Georgia. A yellow Corvette C7 is stopped at the light next to a gold metallic BMW M3. They’re both flexing, waiting to jump as soon as the light turns green, though the Corvette seems a good deal more eager.
The Corvette driver fails to burn-out from the light, and sends what looks like the majority of his clutch into the atmosphere as smoke as he pulls away from the light. And then, as soon as a gentle corner comes up, the driver nearly spins-off into nowhere good. Luckily – impressively – he saves it and rolls onward. But that’s about the only moderately decent bit of driving exhibited in this clip.
Perhaps the Corvette driver jumped the light, or maybe the BMW’s driver had a premonition of what was to come; at any rate, it’s very lucky that he didn’t match his speed to that of the Corvette. Otherwise, both cars would be in the shop.
