What is it?
New C6 has re-discovered its poise below 30mph, but it still grips like no other American car. You think all Yank metal is yawn-inducingly roly-poly? Then try a Corvette - it'll make your eyes water. And it goes sideways really, really easily without making you crash. I am the Stig.
It's a sports car, so the C6 is firm but well damped. It's lost the nervousness from the front end and become a much more pleasant place to be on a long journey. Cabin is big and wide and comfy too. Makes other fast cars feel a bit like hard work when you cruise along the motorway in sixth at 1,000rpm.
On the inside
Nothing short of devastating for the money, the C6 uses the new LS3 6.2-litre V8 mounted up front and driving the rear wheels. That means 437bhp fighting to make the rear tyres lose traction, 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds and 190mph.
As long as you don't harp on about it, the C6 is very cool, if suffering a little from late ‘80s medallionisation. The forthcoming ZR-1 will be ice-cold though.
