First Corvette Stingray Crashes in Arizona


Please bow your heads for a moment of silence as the first crash involving the new Corvette Stingray is upon us.

It was bound to happen sooner or later, but we didn't think it'd be this soon. What you're looking at is the first crash of a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on a public road. This image comes to us today from a forum member at Digital Corvettes who further stated that the damage done is actually much worse than what it appears in this photo. The accident was said to have taken place on a road in Arizona which was apparently full of twisty switchbacks.

The Corvette "hit guardrail on left and bounced back to's in worse shape than it looks." No word on the identity of the driver, but it's a reasonable guess to believe it was either a GM employee or someone working at a Chevrolet dealership. Still, it's hard to see such a fine-looking machine banged up against the rocks. That being said, the first batch of most new cars built are typically used for crash-test certification after journalists test drive them, so we'll take solace in the notion that this particular example of Chevy's finest could have been destined for the scrap heap anyway.
