“We selected the Corvette because it represents an incredible achievement: Not only is it wickedly fast, it’s now also a delight to drive on the challenging, twisty roads that used to be the car’s nemesis,” said Larry Webster, editor-in-chief of Road & Track. “Plus, it’s a real bargain and looks fantastic.”
