Imagine that for a moment and consider what a crash like that must have looked like. According to its builder, KP Racing, the modified F-body Camaro managed to hit 263.2 mph last October and earned its rightful place in the record books, but the team wanted to see if it could go even faster. Makes sense, but things went really, really wrong towards the end of the mile-long stretch. The car lost control and flipped end over end, likely due to a loss of traction and stability. These pictures show the aftermath.
Driver Joe Huneycutt thankfully survived with only minor injuries thanks to modern safety features, but the Camaro is now completely totaled.
