The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

9.2
8.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

German precision and handling combines with Italian power to create a superb supercar that's also fit for daily use. Balanced, comfortable, and very fast (or very, very fast), the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette promises to ring out the C6 generation with grace and aptitude as well as attitude.
