Whoever the owner is of this 2023 Corvette Stingray, we’re feeling bad for you buddy. We caught these photos of the crashed Corvette that were shared on the Corvette Forum and right away we noticed the new-for-’23 wheels and it had a temporary license plate to boot. Doh!
We know nothing we can say can alleviate the pain you are feeling right now, but hopefully, others can learn from it and not total their new Stingrays within the first few weeks of ownership.
According to the original poster on CF, the accident happened in the Mt. Bonnell area of Austin, Texas. Our guess is a too much speed on the narrow, twisty roads resulted in the Stingray coming to rest in the ditch at an angle. The front left tire obviously hit an unmovable object and pieces of the Corvette’s front fascia are scattered in front of the car.
These next two photos show a tow truck attempting to remove the car from its predicament.
Is that second photo real or is it an optical illusion? It looks like the car is on the truck only by its front wheels and the rear corner of the car is balanced on the rock? Wish we could see more about how the car was loaded onto the flatbed.
We hope the owner was uninjured. This is a stark reminder that accidents like this could happen to anyone, especially when the car is new and you’re still learning its quirks and driving feel. As the original poster said, make sure you take advantage of the discount at Spring Mountain and the C8 Corvette Owner’s School.
