Looks like someone has already binned their Corvette C8
With the new Corvette C8 being on our roads for around a month now, it was only a matter of time before someone had an accident.
This looks to be the first crash of the new car and it happened somewhere on a California mountain road.
According to the Instagram account Wrecked Muscle Cars, the Corvette hit an SUV as it was coming round the corner. As you can see, there is considerable damage to the front left of the car but overall, it held up pretty well considering the impact it experienced.
The brand new Corvette would set you back around $60,000 meaning it is one of the cheaper alternatives to its rivals such as the Porsche 911, Audi R8 and Honda NSX. It comes with a 6.2L mid-mounted V8, meaning it is the first mid-engined corvette. It puts out around 500 hp and can get from 0-60 mph in just over three seconds.
