Chevrolet Corvette Reviews
We ought to take its absence of (a) engineering, (b) a controls to the right aspect and (c) an even vaguely okay inside as evidence of the commendable refusal to pander to the whims of mollycoddled 21stcentury softies.
But facts are, within the middle of the British winter, a lefthand drive, back - drive V8 convertible as our stateside cousins might have it, is, a pain within the fanny.
The Grand Activity is, basically, a meatier version of the main Corvette C6, bringing it, in both emphasis and look, closer to the hotter Z06 - but somehow with no managing nous that that product unquestionably has. Strange.
Sitting on wider paths and sporting tyres the width of supper platters, the Grand Sport's steering chases every fissure and pool, constantly threatening to spit you back and give you a fine, glossy, new Armco bow-tie, simply for kicks. Variable in a front splitter that'll chin-shove even the trimmest of sleeping policemen, and also the Grand Sport begins to seem like more trouble than it is worth.
In the previous times, prior to the sterling's Zimbabwean-dollar devaluation, you might justify a Corvette on cost reasons. However, the Grand Sport prices over?73, 000, that's lots of money for swathes of poundshop - level plastics along with a sat-nav which makes Pong look cuttingedge.
Get one dry, clear day, fall the roofing, wind that V8 completely outside, find several miles of clear highway as well as trust the Grand Sport will not destroy you. Knock yourself out, if you're able to manage the distress for those 10 minutes of Eighties amusement. Otherwise, that 911 Cabrio looks really tempting...
