Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7

The seventh generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the C7, is one of the most modern-looking American cars and one of the best looking cars in the world. “An instant classic,” comes to mind.

The small block LT1 6.2L direct injection V-8 pushes 335kW (450 bhp) through a 7-speed manual or 6-speed paddle shift auto gearbox – with an 8-speed auto shifter said to be in the planning – to the 19-inch  rear wheels. The 285/35 wide tyres are needed to handle the 610Nm (450 lb/ft) torque which will pull 1g in cornering. 

And if that’s not enough, there’s the optional Z51 Performance Package with larger (by one inch) wheels front and rear, an electronic limited-slip differential, dry-sump oiling system, and integrated brake, differential and transmission cooling. The Z51 will also feature a unique aero package for improved high-speed stability.
