First 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ‘C7′ involved in one-car accident during routine testing in Arizona

Andrea Divirgilio / February 14, 2013

With distinct aeronautical lines, flowing exterior, and a sleek fastback finish, a machine that emerges with the aesthetic impact and the performance prowess worthy of a Stingray emblem, the much-hyped about 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ‘C7’ was found involved in a one-car accident during engineering testing in Arizona. This 450 hp stunning ride which is the 7th generation of the classical American sports car introduced after year 2005, and is capable to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds, received only minor damage, no citations were issued and no one got hurt, as per the automaker General Motors which recently auctioned first Chevrolet Corvette Stingray for $1.05 million to Nascar team owner and avid Corvette collector Rick Hendrick at Barrett-Jackson for charity. However, we have also earlier seen some of the world’s most expensive luxury car crashes and its aftermaths, including the crash of billionaire Christopher Cox’s $30 million Ferrari 250 GTO, the story of Lindsay Lohan crashing her Porsche 911 into a back of a heavy-goods 18-wheeler vehicle in Los Angeles, and recently Rowan Atkinson hit with $1.4 million car repair bill of his ultra-expensive McLaren F1, making it the biggest car insurance bill ever recorded in Britain.

Notably, the restyled blue 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ‘C7’ was spotted wearing the manufacture license plates.

On this report, the Chevrolet spokesman states, “We can confirm that during routine testing in Arizona, a Stingray was involved in a one-car accident. During evaluation, the inside tire caught the edge of the pavement during a tight corner, leading to the accident. Thankfully, no one was hurt, the car received only minor damage and no citations were issued.”
