The Corvette E-Ray will be a hybrid model due at some point next year

Chevrolet is currently testing these part-petrol, part-electric prototypes of its Corvette supercar, due to go on sale next year.

It’ll be called the E-Ray and according to information on the video, the prototype was hot weather testing in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Spain.

The video is shot using a smartphone and begins by showing the car in an open car park engulfed with flames.

As the video moves around, you can see that every part of the car is on fire and nothing will be saved.

The video then flicks to the aftermath of the fire and what’s left of the hybrid Corvette.

It’s shocking: the car is completely destroyed and all that’s left are various parts piled up.
