The C7 Corvette Z06 is a tricky car to drive. With 650 horsepower on tap from its 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 engine, it’s probably best to leave the traction control on at all times unless you really know what you’re doing.
Everybody makes mistakes, so we don’t want to judge the owner of this Torch Red C7 Z06, but it seems as though he should’ve left his traction control on based on his driving experience. When trying to film his car accelerating, he shifted into second and gave it a bit too much gas, kicking out the rear end of the $80,000 supercar and sending it jetting towards a row of trees at a fairly high rate of speed.
To be honest, we feel pretty bad for this guy. His Z06 is probably totaled, and his pride likely didn’t come away from the accident unscathed either. From what we can gather, no one was hurt in the accident, which is really all that matters. If you’re having a bad day, check out the video below and revel in the fact you didn’t just total your dream car.
