The Top Gear car review:Corvette Stingray
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
It’s a bit shouty: lots of buttons and red-leather in our test car, but it feels nicely made and the double-scoop of the dash makes it feel special. It’s also still Corvette-practical with a big hatchback and luggage space, plus lots of cubbies – we particularly liked the ‘secret’ space revealed by the drop-down sat-nav screen. As for integrity, it’s not quite Porsche quality, but getting there.
Plus, the car we get in Europe is that ‘Z51’ specification, which includes good stuff like an electronic limited-slip differential, dry sump engine, better brake, diff and transmission cooling, specific dampers and springs and anti-roll bars, different gear ratios, bigger wheels, brakes and better tyres as well as the aero package that offers extra stability at speed. A virtual tick-list of sports car essentials, all ticked.
