Corvette fans, you might want to look away for this one.

Videos shared early on Wednesday by Corieblue Fickes to Facebook show what looks to be a truckload of newly built C8-generation Chevrolet Corvettes going up in flames in a parking lot roughly 30 minutes north of Nashville, Tennessee—about an hour and a half south of the car's Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly plant.

By the time the first video starts, half the trailer is already engulfed in fire, with at least one Corvette totally charred. In the second video, firefighters can be seen attempting to extinguish the flames. Both videos can be seen below (mind the explicit language).

Corvette Blogger, which first discovered the videos via the C8 Corvette Owners Group on Facebook, says the transport truck seen in the above clips can carry up to 10 Corvettes at a time. The publication estimates a loss of around $900,000 if every Corvette is deemed a total loss.

We've reached out to Chevrolet to see if we can find out anything more.
