Re: 2014 StingRay take's a spill!

Feb 15, 2013

There was a story on ABC news about a month ago.  The owner is now behind bars for Insurance Fraud.  Apparently the guy filming was a friend, and the driver was about to loose the car in a bankrupcy or something.  He decided to wreck it and "total it out", collect the insurance money, and had made arangements with the camera man to buy it back from his salvage service.

 

Not sure what the validity of the story is, but, either way, what an idiot....

If its a video game and doesn't require a steering wheel, is it worth my time?

Would be interresting to see how insurance fraud would work on an item you can't buy yet...

Anyone have any ideas?

Wow...that's some interesting stuff there...I just read that article, as well as watch the video again just for the hell of it. Then after the video was done and the bunch of vids popped uop, there was a video that featured before-and-after footage of multiple Veyron mishaps, including the crash we're discussing here. I was surprised that there wasn't too much body damage on the car, but the overall damage looked quite extensive. Couldn't tell if the undercarriage suffered any...when they were pulling the car out of the water, the wheels weren't moving, but that could be because they were dragging the car out of a lake through mud and gunk lol.

I don't understand. Why does everyone hate the new Corvette aesthetics?

 

I think they look great! A massive improvement on the previous look. As evidenced in the above picture, the two cars clearly have different tail lights.

Gojet-64 is now Encvell. (Gojet-64 is now only used for older games and Vita)

People don't like change, even if it is from a so called design tradition.

 

Take the recent generation of Cadillac. They don't look like what a "traditional" big boat that is was. Times change and so did they.

Is it me, or is the Corvette the only vehicle in the lineup that does NOT feature the Chevy logo on the car (as seen on the Camaro in the above pic)? Makes me wonder if it's something they did intentionally. I too like the new look...the rear of the Camaro and Corvette look similar and different at the same time, though the difference is clearly noticeable lol.
