The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2014 hasn't been off the delivery truck for very long, but the carnage is already beginning. What may have been the first customer Corvette Stingray crash showed up just last week, and now another Stingray has bit the dust.

This image comes from Corvette Forum, although the poster was not aware of the circumstances of the crash, or whether the occupant(s) made it out unscathed.

Judging by the imploded windshield and other topside damage, it appears this Corvette was on its roof at one point. Either that, or the owner tried to reenact a scene from The Fast & The Furious.

The damage is limited to the top of the car, making it into an impromptu convertible.

The front of the car is blocked by a pillar in the photo, but we can see that the hood can still open. The front fenders, doors, and even the wheels also appear to be untouched.

Sadly, this probably won't be the last time we see a Corvette Stingray in this state. Wh don't know when the next crash will happen, but we do know that the Internet will be there to tell us when it does.
