What Car? says...
The Chevrolet Corvette sports car is one of those all-American products that are wildly popular in the good ol' U S of A but haven't really broken the UK market (see also: American Apparel and Dunkin' Donuts).
In fact, until now, the idea of buying and driving a Corvette in Britain has had limited appeal because they've only ever been available in left-hand drive form. Times are changing, though, and the new eighth-generation Corvette C8 Stingray you see before you can be had with the steering wheel on the right. Hallelujah.
Rather strangely, the Corvette can be had as either a ‘coupe’ with a removable hardtop or as a dedicated convertible with an electrically retractable roof. That’s right, all Corvettes allow you to experience the wind in your hair – it's just what happens to the roof that changes.
To find out whether the Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray 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 compare it with those sports car rivals we've mentioned.
