Review

We’ve waited a long time for the Chevrolet Corvette to reach our shores, but we’re glad GM waited until now. With a plush interior, impressive ride quality (on the optional MagneRide dampers), effortless performance and a competitive list price, the Corvette, now in its eighth generation, finally feels like it can take on the best from Europe.

Chevrolet’s naturally-aspirated 6.2-litre V8 produces a respectable 475bhp and 452lb-ft of torque. With launch control activated via the dual-clutch automatic gearbox, the Corvette can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds. That’s quick by anyone’s standards.
