Watch This Show-Off Driver Nearly Wreck His Corvette
It's so tempting to be a showoff when you're driving around in a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, especially if you find yourself sitting at a stoplight next to a BMW M3. The temptation proved too great for the driver of one 'Vette and he's lucky he didn't end up crashing his car. The two start off just sitting next to each other at a stoplight. While they wait, the challenge begins. Engines start revving and there's a little testing the waters. You just know the minute that light turns green the two cars are going to take off like there's no tomorrow. But this is not a track and the Corvette is a very powerful car.

The Corvette neatly shows the BMW exactly who's boss, but just through the intersection his rear wheels lose traction and things go very sideways as the Corvette spins out of control. It's a darn close call and he's lucky there were no cars next to him, not even the BMW he was racing.
Otherwise it would have been a rather pricey bit of showmanship and likely not worth the satisfaction of proving that he was the faster of the two cars.
