Camaro driver crashes while trying to race a Tesla on public roads

The Driver of an old Camaro tried to show off to a Tesla's driver. It ended poorly for him

  • The driver of an old Camaro is harassing a Tesla driver before stomping on the gas and loosing control

  • Despite crossing all traffic lanes in an out-of-control drift, the Camaro didn’t hit another vehicle

  • The only damage caused by the accident was to the offending car

Shared by a twitter account called Hold My Beer on September 10, 2021, a short video filmed by a passenger of a Tesla shows an old Camaro driving next to the electric car.

The driver of the muscle car appears to be taunting the Tesla’s driver, but their conversation is hard to understand over the road noise.

After the electric car driver yells “I don’t care”, the Camaro accelerates suddenly.

The driver of said Camaro loses control of his car almost immediately and the blue muscle car is slinged to the right, across all three lanes of what looks to be a relatively busy boulevard in an uncontrolled slide.

The Camaro then fishtails a couple of times with its back wheels hitting the dirt on the right side of the road, before almost doing a 360˚ turn and ending up facing the traffic.

Apparently not satisfied with his exploits, the Camaro’s driver floors the accelerator again, probably to catch up to the Tesla, and that is how the video ends.

Fortunately, no injuries were caused and the only vehicle that might have been damaged is the Camaro, although it might not have suffered, it is hard to tell in the video.

This situation could have had a very bad ending if a car, or even worse, a motorcycle had been driving in the lane where the muscle car ended its course.

Watch the video on top to see the incident for yourself.
