There is no shortage of ways for sports cars to be destroyed and a Chevrolet Camaro owner in Charlotte, North Carolina just found a novel way to have a bad day.

Images shared by the Charlotte Fire Department on Thursday show the American muscle car dangling from the sixth floor of a parking tower. The Camaro crashed through the side of the structure after being left in neutral and rolling away, according to a statement provided to Road & Track by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

"This is a non-criminal incident. No injuries reported," a spokesperson for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said in an email to Road & Track. "And, there was no structural damage to the building."

After the Camaro rolled away and broke through a metal barrier on the side of the garage, the Charlotte Fire Department began to facilitate a plan to stabilize the uneasy muscle car. Forty-one minutes later, the fire department balanced the Camaro and the CMPD began investigating the incident.


While the spokesperson for the CMPD was not able to confirm the exact trim of Chevrolet Camaro, the wheels, front bumper, and blacked-out trim indicate this could be a ZL1 edition. If so, then the $72,195, supercharged 650-hp 6.2-liter V-8 muscle car will need a new front bumper at the very least. As ever, this is also a good reminder to check that you set your parking brake, particularly in manual transmission vehicles.
