A driver has escaped death after crashing a Chevrolet Corvette at 230mph.

The driver, who has not been named, was taken to hospital after the terrifying smash, but was released later that afternoon (Friday).

US tuning company Hinson Motorsports, was attempting to break the standing mile speed record for a road-going Corvette, which it managed with a top speed of 224.3mph.

This amazing video - shot at the Texas Mile strip - shows the Corvette rolling once before landing back on its wheels. It was, of course, written off.

The ruined Vette had been tuned for a barely believable (and Bugatti Veyron-trouncing) 1,738bhp, thanks largely to a pair of turbochargers strapped to the 6.2-litre V8 engine.

On its official Facebook page, Hinson Motorsports confirmed that the driver "walked away," adding that "this a testament to following safety guidelines and building a safe car."

The current standing mile speed record holder is a Lamborghini Gallardo tuned by Underground Racing, at just over 250mph.

    That was epic!... The fastest I've ever driven was still 100mph less than this dude, so i can't even imagine... I wonder if he even felt any impact at that speed.

    Pontiac GTO. I always wanted one since they started back makin them in 04 (Only made them from 04-06). Which AMG you have? I dont know much about Benz's cause im more into muscle cars. But I know they have a few different kinds.(I think)

    But my homeboi has a big 4 door Benz and that 🤬 is pretty damn fast.
