This video shows just how easy it is to lose control of a high horsepower car, even in conditions that appear relatively safe.

Driving down a straight stretch of highway during what appears to be a Chevrolet Corvette cruise, a driver of one the cars decides to drop the hammer in the left lane once the traffic clears up.

Unfortunately, the rear tires of his car give way and in a panic the driver hits the brakes though the Corvette proceeds to fishtail before veering off to the right and slamming into one of his buddies driving in the adjacent lane.

Go ahead and watch the mayhem unfold, but we must warn you that this video contains some profane language so may not be completely safe for work.
