Days after we showed you photos of a mangled Dodge Viper that was the recipient of a tornado, we have yet another sports car that fell victim to another twister. Somebody better start building shelters for these poor cars.

This particular Corvette ZR1, which, by the way, cost the owner $120,000 to purchase has been reduced to nothing more than a $19,600 piece of wreck. As to what kind of catastrophe gave this Corvette ZR1 a smackdown of a lifetime? Yep. Another tornado in Texas.

If there is a silver lining to what was once a ZR1, it’s that some parts of the car, especially the 6.2-liter supercharged LS9 V8 engine, appears to have been undamaged so the owner can probably still fetch something out of his dilapidated sports car. Hey, it’s better than nothing, right?

TwinTurbo3000GT: At 155mph a car travels the length of 3 football fields per second. Add another 50mph, and that would be 4 football fields per second.

Very cool car, but the sound in that video makes it sound like a UPS truck. I hope is sounds better than that!

In order to sell vehicles, not only do they need a quality product (which by all accounts, they are doing well in that regard), but also advertising and marketing.
