Driver bins his Corvette C4 after owning it for a week

He also landed himself a trip to jail.

2021 wasn't off to a great start for the owner of a certain C4 Corvette who just purchased the car before the end of 2020. According to WRAL.com, the new owner of the Vette was driving it along a road in North Carolina before he came across fourth-generation Chevrolet Camaro eager for a street race. The two drivers didn't know each other, but they decided it would be a good idea to test their cars against one another.

Unfortunately for the two motorists, a State Trooper was just passing by as the street race was underway, turning around immediately to pursue the speeders. Pursuit speeds reached 130mph (209km/h), but was rather short-lived after the Camaro broke down forcing the driver to surrender.

The Corvette didn't make it much further either, as the driver hit a ditch after running through an intersection at high speed, ending up planting the car into a guardrail rear-first.

Luckily, no one was injured in the incident, but both cars have been impounded and the drivers have landed themselves a trip to jail to await their charges. The cars are likely going to be auctioned off for charity - and considering the drag race was on New Years Eve, we can say without a doubt that this isn't how either driver planned to spend the holiday.

  • What do you mean auctioned for charity? The cars are their property. They'll probably just pay the impound lot and get them back.

  • How can the police just take and sell their cars? It's not like they had a bunch of drugs in their car.

    • Even if they did, the cops shouldn't be able to just steal your car

    • Yeah, that's just plain theft. It's not right. That guy is either going to have to keep making those car payments or leave the lender on the hook which will ruin his credit. It looks like legally, the lender should get it back. The cops don't...
