TCC’s Bottom Line
Ridiculously fast and still daily-driver practical, the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette is an everyday supercar. If you're not lured in by the siren song of a car like the 2011 Jaguar XK, you're beyond hope. The 2011 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class can be a luxury grand tourer and a high-energy exotic, all at once, if you order properly.
