2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe found crashed in Arizona
This image comes to us via the enthusiast community DigitalCorvettes.com where member gpetry posted the picture of a metallic blue 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe precariously slammed against a large rock wall. The email came from a friend in Arizona who was driving along a twisty stretch of road when he came upon the blue C7 Stingray battered and beaten in the ditch. That friend explained that the 2014 Corvette had apparently hit the guardrail on the left side before bouncing back across the road into the ditch and against the rock wall. The person who caught this picture also stated that the damage was worse than it looks in the image.
Little is known right now about the details that lead up to the wrecked 2014 Corvette Stingray shown on the right but we can make a few assumptions based on what we can see. First, the blue C7 coupe is wearing Michigan manufacturer plates so it is a safe bet that this is a General Motors test mule and since there has been no story about an automotive journalist wrecking a new Corvette – we can bet that this car was piloted by a member of the General Motors test team when the accident occurred. Beyond that, your guess is as good as ours as the General hasn’t had anything to say about the wrecked Vette thus far. The worst case scenario is that the blue C7 Stingray was performing some on road testing when something went wrong and the test driver was unable to avoid bouncing off of the guardrail and slamming into the rock wall. The best case scenario is that this Stingray was being used for real world crash testing in a desolate area in Arizona but considering the fact that the witness who took the picture stated that police were arriving on the scene – it seems to be unlikely that GM would crash a car on a public road without having the authorities on site.
