This Wrecked 2014 Corvette Stingray Was Driven for Less than 600 Miles

Since the redesigned 2014 Corvette Stingray was launched last autumn, we’ve seen more than just a couple of them being crashed in different scenarios.

News of the first customer crash surfaced last October, when a yellow Vette was photographed sitting on the road with a broken nose. The second one occurred just a few days later, with the aftermath showing a decapitated Blade Silver Metallic model.

We can also include the Premier Edition Corvette that was driven through a dealerships window just before New Year’s Day. This one had a damaged bumper, a cracked windshield and a few paint chips. It ended up being sold with a $8,000 discount.

With more and more 2014 Corvette in customers hands - we already know that demand has exceeded the company’s initial expectations - it was only a matter of time until another one of these sportscars would get an unwanted rhinoplasty with help from good ol’ inertia.

The example pictures above was found sitting in an Insurance Auto Auctions lot in Detroit with a totaled front end and driver’s side and a missing door. There’s no info to what might have happened to this Vette, but we assume the driver side swiped a protective rail before stopping into another vehicle.

It appears the car is fitted with the Z51 Performance package and has just 562 miles (904 km) on the odometer. What a shame...
