More sad news, for another StingRay was just totaled, and yes, this is in addition to the one we learned about yesterday! Here is the latest one destroyed, and again thankfully the owner walked away from this one too.
We know that the owner of the previous totaled one had disengaged the traction control and another safety system. Do not know whether this owner had done something similar, was driving too fast for conditions, or someone blew a stop sign and he/she was an innocent bystander, etc. What we do know is that the StingRay has within 1% the torque of the C6 Z06. In other words, the StingRay has massive power that we need to respect!corvetteblogger said:There’s little doubt that today’s Corvette is much stronger and safer than previous generations. Like most modern cars, the Corvette Stingray has predetermined crumple zones that absorb the energy of an impact while the cockpit’s front and side airbags deploy to help protect the driver. And after all that happens, OnStar is there to call emergency services as soon as a crash is detected.
The picture of this crashed Arctic White Corvette Stingray comes from a poster on reddit.com. His comments are brief but to the point:
So I totaled my Vette yesterday. I walked away without a scratch. I am so grateful to Chevy for building such a solid car. I felt so protected, even as it flipped. Thankful to be alive.
We’re thankful that driver is okay as well. Flipping around inside a car has to be a terrifying experience but knowing that the car will not only protect you during the crash, but will help after the fact by calling for help is great piece of mind.
