Corvette Stingray review

Published: 13 Jan 2015
Now here in the UK and drives better than you'd believe. Sadly, no RHD...

Good stuff

Composure, drama, noise, ability, engine. Surprising mpg when cruising

Bad stuff

It's sadly LHD-only, polarising styling


What is it?

The latest version of the iconic Corvette brand, this time tagged with the ‘Stingray’ badge once again: big 6.2-litre pushrod V8, rear-drive, manual ‘box and transverse, composite leaf sprung rear axle. The C7 is left-hand drive only, but sold in the UK in ‘Z51’ spec – more on that later – weighing in at £62,450, or as the Z06 range-topper, which swells the car's standard 460bhp to, oh, just the 650bhp. With suitably race-bred upgrades throughout, we reckon it's a steal at £87,860.

What's the verdict?

Terrific sportscar stands on its own for capability. Great value a bonus.
