The salesman reportedly confused the clutch and brake pedals. That’s not something you want to do with a 650 horsepower Corvette Z06 on the showroom floor.

Jalopnik reader NCDiesel sent these pictures in, explaining that the car was brand new, ordered for a customer. The full price? No less than $95,380.

What the North Carolina Chevy dealership salesman was doing behind the wheel, or what will happen to the customer’s order, I do not know.

Okay.

I get that not everyone is experienced with a stick shift. I also get that the sheer amount of torque cars like this put out can make them jump pretty hard if you lift off the clutch at idle. And I also understand that sometimes cars have weird quirks or lockouts that prevent your desired operation at times as safety measures.

But when your job consists of selling cars, how can you possibly confuse the brake and clutch?!
