This restyled blue 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is wearing manufacturer plates, and it appears to be the same one seen around the internet in various pictures lately. This crash is likely not part of the Chevrolet testing regimen, however. Digital Corvettes forum member gpetry posted the shot with a note: "got this picture e-mailed from a friend in Arizona last week..." No circumstances are given, other than the incident occurred in the thick of a set of curvy roads, and the coupe ping-ponged off a guardrail and into the rock wall. Hopefully everyone involved in the incident walked away.

It may not be a pretty thing to see, a crashed sports car that's not even available for sale yet, but rest easy. Many pre-production cars are used for development and then unceremoniously crushed and scrapped, anyway. If that's the case here, that makes this wrecked 'Vette less of a tragedy and more of a case of exceptional efficiency.

      I crashed a pre-production Mustang about 20 years ago... Was not a high point in my young career. Had to flatbed haul it 100 miles back to Dearborn. Not quite as bad as this one looks, though. Ticketing officer at the time: "so, aside from the obvious handling problems, how is that thing to drive?".

        Where did you work? I am guessing that was the SN95?
          • 2 Years Ago
          Yes, an \'96 Cobra with the 32V engine, before the \'94 were out. No body damage, but tore up the rear end. Had to endure (fairly) some ribbing from the mechanics while that one was being put back together.

      I really like it in that blue. Hopefully that color is available on the production cars.

      The first 5 or so 458 Italia's had similar fate.

      that's a pretty shot.. u got a car parked on the side with tall lovely swaying grass in front of it, a mountain in the background, skies reflecting off the bright blue paint job.

      Looks surprisingly great in blue!
        • 2 Years Ago
        What are you people saying the blue is horrible ! It shows off all the sharp edges and doesnt look good against the black colored parts of the car. A dark blue or a darker color would look much better
          • 2 Years Ago
          Nothing wrong with the blue paint in my opinion. But the black spoiler in the back does look like a second thought thing And I still don't like how the black removable top goes along with the C-pillar.
        • 2 Years Ago
        Yup, blue seems to be the best color so far for it.

      Looks good in blue. Helluva way to debut this color though :-p

      Driving it up a wall? Nicely done *golf clap*

      Love the color. It's about half way between Jetstream Blue Metallic and Le Mans Blue.
