Feature Flick: Corvette ZR1 Driver Collides with Chrysler 300 SRT8

Poor driving skills and fast cars are as good bedfellows as water and electricity -- in other words, the results are often dangerous. As this Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 driver found out the hard way, being able to afford a fast car doesn't necessarily mean you're qualified to drive it. It looks like the ZR1's 638 supercharged horses were just a few too many for this Corvette driver, whose ego got the better of him and led to an accident with a Chrysler 300 SRT8.

In this video with non-work-safe audio (now might be a good time to grab those headphones), we see two guys in a Chrysler 300 SRT8 driving along filming as the Corvette ZR1 driver decides to show how heavy his right foot is. We will say one thing: this ZR1 driver should have bought a Corvette Z06 instead and invested the money he saved in driving lessons. Either that, or left his ego at home. Check out the video for yourself below.

It's irresponsible to sell a 640 hp car to just anyone. The fact that they have to de-tune this engine to race in GT3 should be a hint that this car is stupidly overpowered. I could care less if they go off and hit a tree, but more often then not, they end up killing other people.
