Default Another C7 Accident

The C7's haven't even started production yet and there's already been 2 accidents

And here's the first accident. I knew that there were rumors about this one being photoshopped but I'm still assuming that it is real.

I also posted this on corvette7 .com , that's the forum that I usually use but I figured I would try posting with you guys as well

Looks like it held up better than that Lincoln if it did get T-boned.

So, exactly how does that work with insurance if the car you hit is bound for the crusher anyway?

Hard tell from the pic, but the C7's frame looks to be about 60% stiffer than the Lincoln.

Visibility issue? BTW, of it had 500HP and weighed less than 3100 lbs it could have got out of the way.

Looks to me that the impact did not penetrate the inner wall.

I think the other car got the worst of it!
