Corvette Fails Are Less Rare Than You Think
Generally speaking, Mustang GT drivers are the authority on this kind of tomfoolery. You boisterous Blue-Oval boys, however, can be rest assured that there is plenty of shame to spread around to other makes and models. Ferraris, Porsches, and BMWs aren’t immune to poor decision making. And on occasion we’ll even see a Corvette fail due to complete driver error.

Of the five, my favorite is certainly nestled in at the number 1 spot.

Instead of a smokey burnout, white clouds bellow from the yellow ‘Vette as the clutch gets nuked. In my opinion, this particular clip is more cringe worthy than comical, but for those who would like to watch, here’s a longer video from the winning clip.
