Here’s what we said about the mid-engine Corvette in our first driving review:
“The Corvette Stingray we drove at Spring Mountain, pictured above, equipped with a Z51 track pack. It adds an electronic limited-slip differential, the Brembo is larger brake with four-piston monobloc brake calipers, enhanced cooling, Michelin Pilot 4S sport tires, specific axle ratios, a performance exhaust, a two-piece front splitter and rear spoiler all together generate 400 pounds of downforce, and a track-tuned FE3 suspension (base is the FE1 and without FE2) spring changer, swingarm, dampers and electronic calibration. You can enhance all of that with the optional $1,895 FE4 magnetic suspension, larger spoiler, and a pair of upgraded seats. While we didn’t get a chance to try the $1,495 midsize GT2 seats, we recommend trying the $1,995 Competition Sport top-of-the-line seats before ordering – both drivers Your Autoblog tests were all on the slim side and found the bottom of the seat to be uncomfortable pinched. The standard GT1 seats (pictured below) are fine in that respect and still offer adjustable side bars that give us enough room on the track. The low roll and roof construction also causes headroom problems for this pair of six-legged riders, especially with helmets on the track.
“A lot of information is that the C8 does not have a traditional manual transmission, but it also does not have a traditional automatic transmission. Honestly, the two wouldn’t fit in with what really is a mid-engine supercar has a blitzing ability from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds. On the track, a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission developed by GM and Tremec are smart enough to shift at the right moment most of the time, but still have some quirky gearshift choices and moments when it’s time to pull the paddle. That almost never happens when using the most aggressive settings of Porsche PDK or Mercedes AMGmanual is automatic, but this is a critique regarding the level of excellence. GM and Tremec should be applauded for their efforts.
“So does the fat Brembo brakes of the Z51 package. That pedal itself is also nicely placed for the left foot brake, which cannot be said for Porsche.”
