The Top Gear car review:Corvette Stingray
For:Composure, drama, noise, ability, engine. Surprising mpg when cruising
Against: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.
