First off – do not do illegal street racing, ever. Take a look at this creepy footage of a guy street racing in his Corvette (not this one) and hitting 150 mph. Strangely enough, he raced against an equally sick modded Corvette in a sort of a spectacle that ended badly. Driving his Corvette to the limit and trying to catch up with the competitor, the driver of the Procharged C6 Grand Sport Corvette hit a small bump on the asphalt and the car started to lose its composure on the road. Unfortunately, he could not retain control and he hit a barrier soon after largely demolishing the ‘Vette.
Luckily, both the driver and the passenger in the crashed 800hp Corvette survived uninjured and the competitors in the 750hp Vortech T-Trim C6 Z06 escaped the spinning car.
Apparently, only 30 seconds after the crash the special Corvette bursted into flames and the pictures shown in the video shows massive damage.
As Speeders Digest reports, the driver and the passengers stayed alive thanks to a comprehensive array of lifesaving safety equipment. We do not really know what did they have with them in the car, but the toolbar, good seats, exceptional harnesses and the airbags were definitely helpful.
All in all, do not race illegally – ever.
