2014 Wrecked in Arizona

Got this picture e-mailed from a friend in Arizona last week with the following description:
"Driving through some mountains in Arizona about 30 minutes ago. In some tight switchbacks when we passed this '14 Vette. Cop had just arrived. Car is in worse shape than looks. Hit guardrail on left and bounced back to rocks."

Somebody had a bad day...

Why is it easier to be a conservative than a liberal? Because it is easier to give a man the finger than a helping hand.

Possibly the ART.................Airbag Reliability Test? ...and by the looks of it, FAIL.

That blue mule probably suffered from the optional brown seat syndrome.

......and kiss that Blue mule goodbye.

Why do they call it "common sense" when, in fact, it has become so uncommon?

That's my opinion, it outta be your's.

I wonder if they were driving with traction/stability control disabled.

Hmm, looking at this picture has had an odd effect on me...seeing the C7 in a real world situation, without all the studio lights and surrounded by people, you can finally see the overall design theme of the car. I had never noticed before how the shape of the "c pillars" (for lack of a better phrase) work together with the fenders to accentuate the rear of the car, it's forming some very interesting planes, and the rear lights actually make sense when you see the car from this angle...they are shaped by the flow of the quarter panels.

Oh yeah, and it's too bad the car is wrecked, but it sure looks pretty sitting there anyway. Hope the driver is okay.

Looks like the driver spun around to far. I hear the driver was attempting to redesign the rear end....

Another site has a better pic of the car. Looks like this is the blue car that was in the Arizona pics earlier. The video that was posted earlier, same car then too. Bummer! Looks like the car held up good if it bounced off a guardrail, would love to see the other side.
