Torched Corvette in the Ukraine - Click above for a gallery of images

Judging by these photographs, someone in the Ukraine didn't like this Extra-Crispy Chevrolet Corvette. And although the melted plastic lump is being been blamed on "class warfare," it could have been an insurance scam, a tryst gone bad, or some hardcore Grand Theft Auto: Streets of Kiev payback – who knows.

The precedents point to any number of reasons, like the Viper that was flambéed perhaps because of The Mark, or the 14 foreign cars that were torched in Moscow for no reason that anyone could guess. But the result here is still a shame: a charbroiled C6. Tip your hat to a fallen comrade, and check out the gallery of photos below.

      Jealousy can be taken to extreme limits at times.

      That is just wrong.

      That model of Daewoo parked right behind what's left of the Vette was later rebadget as Chevrolet in Europe, so, technically, number of road-worthy Chevrolets in Ukraine hasn't changed.

      Let's get real here. I don't see why this would make news here on Autoblog...

      The population of the USA is 303,824,640, and I'm sure everyday, there are more then a few C6's that get totaled.

      Not to mention, this is a random act of violence on a 50,000 dollar car. It would be like setting an A4 on fire, or lighting a match to a small trailer home.

      It's hardly the same thing, and I dunno if you're trying to appeal to the Corvette fanboys here, but I don't see how this is news.

        Its news because the media must keep making the economy seem terrible so as to make socialism more acceptable, I mean class warfare isn't the problem- that's just an excuse for the degenerates to break the law and feel like its okay.

      Despicable. Understandable, but nonetheless despicable.

      Save the Enzo's, Save the Vipers, Save the Vette's...what's next?

      I mean it's only one, I'm sure Kentucky can bang out another one quintillion Corvettes this year! YAY! (Anyone who finds the definition of Quintillion will recieve a box of Jonathon Ramsey's toasty Vette cereal!) ^.^

      • 5 Years Ago
      I cant help but think that the man who owned the car might have some "violent" friends. You know, he has money to buy a C6 but park it on the street...

      No innocent vehicle should have to fear being burnt at the stake...And when everyone is screaming about how we need to tolerate one another...
