At the American Copart auction, which specializes in the sale of cars written off by insurance companies, a wrecked Chevrolet Corvette C8 appeared to smithereens. The nuance is that it is priced at 107,699 dollars (7.4 million rubles), which is 47,704 dollars (3.3 million rubles) more than the cost of the new supercar.
The front end of the Chevrolet Corvette is completely broken, but the 502-horsepower 6.2 V8 was not damaged, because in the new generation the model has become a mid-engined model. In addition, the sidewalls of the body were slightly damaged and all the airbags were deployed. For the time being, only the official dealers of the brand have the parts necessary for the restoration of the new model.
- The fact that it was released in January 2020 and is one of the first production copies adds some value to the crashed Corvette. So far, about 2,700 units have been produced in total: in the spring, the General Motors plant was quarantined due to the coronavirus pandemic and now work is only resuming.
In April, the owner of a brand new Corvette crashed a supercar just 26 hours after purchase. At the intersection, a black Hyundai Accent did not give way to him. Police later found the sedan driver guilty of drunk driving.
