Back on Thanksgiving Day of 2011, we saw what happens when a C5 Chevrolet Corvette goes head-to-head on public roads against a C6 Vette – the older Vette spears into the passenger-side door of the newer Vette. The video was our most popular post of 2011, so we know that well over a million viewers saw the ill-advised drag race. We think that video illustrated that racing on public roads was a bad idea, but sometimes, accidents happen even without a race.

Hit the jump
to see what happens when a pair of tuned-out Nissan 350Z models do their best impression of the Thanksgiving Day Melee. The YouTube page claims that the two cars were actually traveling at the speed limit (read: not racing) as part of a caravan of Z models, when the black, supercharged Z coupe tapped its throttle and lost control, veering into the passing lane and right into the path of a Z roadster.

Still, the collision looks like déjà vu all over again, except the quick video is better this time and we actually hear the impact and see the parts flying all over the freeway. The accident reportedly didn't result in any serious injuries.

      The real story behind is that the Black 350Z has a supercharger and new tires and when he blipped the throttle the tires broke traction on the wet road and slid. End Story.

        I don't see any evidence of that. Looks like he wasn't paying attention and steered to the left. MARC

          Obviously you didn't have the sound on. You can hear the car rev, and then immediately it dives left, like some serious torque steer. That wasn't just him veering into the other Z, that could have caused a scuffle. He straight up pulled a PIT maneuver on it.

        thats not an accident that was a wreck, the only accident there was the one the non-drivers parents had when they created him, living proof that ******** is not an effective form of birth control.

      It's a straight road dummy,all you have to do is go straight. Well at least there is footage for the insurance claim.

      Nice save by both drivers I'd say. And bye the way, speed limit my a**. No doubt there's gummy tires on the coupe. Combine that with turbo lag and somone more than "mispedalled" his ride. TJE (hiself)

        Save by the silver car?? It spun between the guard wires and was totaled, no save there. And the black coupe has a supercharger, not a turbo, no lag, hence why it broke loose instantly. Everyone is clearly going the speed limit (if you don't believe the description then look at how slow the lines go by).

      that looked like a set up... they meant to do it.

      I don't understand why people think it's "poor tuning" and etc. If you clearly watch the video and pay attention to the noise, the "supercharged Z" has a jump in throttle. You can tell just by listening. Right after the blip in the throttle, you can hear it jump off the redline. Logic says that if you miss a shift and throw it into a lower gear, the top speed of the lower gear doesn't match the engine speed and wheel speed so it will cause a spinout like that. I vote the driver missed a proper gear change.

        You do know you're listening to the car with the camera? And no, it won't spin out if you "miss a gear". You'd have to downshift two gears to cause that, and I don't see it breaking loose in the back. MARC

          You are not hearing the quiet and stock camera car. The windows are down and you are hearing the exhaust from the supercharged Z. It has Over 400hp to the rear wheels. Combine that with cold wet roads and it didn't take much.

      At least you was man enough to admit your mistake,, Glad nobody got hurt,,Well if your not up on Downshifting skills ..Try to Blip the throttle up higher to match your revs when you pushed clutch in (Guessing your a Manuel transmission??) not sure but anyhow you may have locked them up slightly enough to spin as you let clutch out .. remember to rev it up and match rpms to wheel speed before releasing clutch.. my two cents . be well take care.
