Introduction

What Car? says...

The Chevrolet Corvette is a wildly popular sports car in America, but the idea of driving one in the UK has had limited appeal until recently because it only came in left-hand drive form.

Times are changing, though, and this eighth-generation Corvette – the C8 Stingray – can be had with the steering wheel on the right. Hallelujah!

There's also a faster version on the horizon, called the Z06. That will be a natural rival for the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 GT3. 

To find out whether the Chevrolet Corvette feels as at home in Europe as it does in Utah, keep reading this comprehensive review. We'll cover performance, comfort, running costs and more, and tell you how it compares with the main rivals.

And if temptation gets the better of you, we can help you find Corvettes and many other models of car for the lowest prices available if you search our free What Car? New Car Deals pages. They have lots of the best new sports car deals.

  • Yes. It's very easy to drive, and the optional MagneRide adaptive suspension makes it more comfortable over lumps and bumps than even some executive cars. The engine can switch into a four-cylinder mode to improve fuel efficiency. Read more here

  • We don’t have data for it because it wasn't included in the 2022 What Car? Reliability Survey but every Corvette comes with a three-year, 60,000 mile warranty. Read more here
