Over the weekend at the Texas Mile Hinson Motorsports’ a record setting Turbo Chevrolet Corvette Z06 crashed while traveling at over 230 mph.
Fortunately (and miraculously), the driver emerged from the accident with minor injuries and was later released from the hospital.
The Turbo Corvette Z06 was modified by Hinson Motorsports and produced a whopping 1,428 horsepower at the wheels. Modifications included a rear-mounted twin-turbocharger system, reinforced engine internals, upgraded fuel injectors, and a Quaiffe differential. All that is now gone.
Check out the video of the crash after the jump.
