Chevrolet Corvette 6.2 V8 2LT 2dr Auto
Driving a Corvette is always a pleasure, in all weathers. The Chevy engineers have dialed in the chassis to be neutral, the seat and controls position you perfectly to see and feel everything easily, out the windows, on the head up display or on the instruments.
So you can push the car with confidence within just a few miles of getting behind the wheel. Its longish wheelbase improves the ride – especially on the active shocks – and makes turn in feel slightly slow. But that can be compensated for by using the finely weighted throttle. And that’s all in the base model. Push further up the model range and the driving experience goes from good to vivid to interstellar. The sheer acceleration of the ZR1 out of corners and on straights is right up there – and beyond – the very best that Europe has to offer.
Brakes are equally eye-popping, slowing the car even faster than it can accelerate. Auto rev-matched manual and automatic gearboxes are available across the range, with the manual being the most fun but the auto ultimately the fastest way to beat the clock.
