Little wrecked Corvette: Humiliating moment show-off driver hits the gas and immediately spins off the road
- A Corvette owner attempted to show off his 500bhp 6.2 litre V8 engine
- Unfortunately, the driver lost the back end of the car while accelerating
- As a result, his car shot wildly to the left and impacted at speed with a barrier
- The driver was attempting to do a burnout in second and again in third gear
This is the moment a man driving a Corvette loses control when he nails the gas pedal and loses the back end.
The man, who has not been identified, buries the throttle in his Corvette and changes gear twice in quick succession without lifting his foot from the throttle, destabilising the back of his car.
As he continues to put the 500bhp down through his rear tyres, he loses the back end of the car and it careers across the road in Grafton, Illinois.
This driver of a 6.2-litre Corvette tried to impress fellow petrol heads by performing a rolling burnout leaving two long black tyre marks on the roadway in Grafton, Illinois
Unfortunately for the driver, his ambition was far greater than his ability and once the roadway moved to the left, he lost control
The Corvette spun over onto the opposite carriageway before he regained a semblance of control
The driver, who had a 5.0 litre Ford Mustang to his left, was trying to show off, but his insistence of changing gear rapidly saw him lose traction and spiral out of control after he attempted a rolling burnout.
Video of the incident shows him leaving a trail of rubber on the road.
It is not known the amount of damage the Corvette suffered or whether the driver was injured.
