This (refreshingly high-quality) footage from a Cars and Coffee event in the United States shows the driver of a Dodge Viper SRT attempt to show off for a crowd, but end up clattering into the kerb instead.

The video was shot in Houston, Texas, and shows the driver of the red V10-powered, rear-wheel-drive Viper SRT hit the loud pedal, seemingly in an attempt to please onlookers.

But it all goes horribly wrong, with the high-performance machine sliding into a kerb. Those same onlookers then proceed to rush over to the vehicle and have a good laugh at the unfortunate fellow behind the wheel. Classy…
