The first Corvette to bear the Stingray badge in over 40 years, this latest model marks a return to the Corvette’s roots after – to be honest – more than a few years of growing stale. Boasting an all-new LT1 small-block V8 engine that puts out 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, this latest Vette will do 0-60 mph in under four seconds, which is pretty stellar performance for the price. Aesthetically, the Stingray features a more chiseled and structured look than past models, and premium styling continues inside with aluminium and (optional) carbon fiber accents across the body. A nice gamble on a flagship model that needed a refresher, this is sure to be a hot ticket item when it finally hits showroom floors.
