The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
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. Raising pulses and generating sheer envy: it's all in a day's work for the gorgeous, sublime Jaguar XK. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL Class toughens up its image and its handling, but still feels more content as a grand touring grand dame.
