First Drives Of The 2014 Corvette Stingray

2014 Corvette Stingray Gets Driven

The first reviews of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray (C7) have been released and Motor Trend and Car and Driver are the first two publications to get to drive the car. Both magazines have released videos reviewing the V8 monster that is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. The car puts out an earth moving 455 horsepower straight from the factory.

Both reviews are of cars that come with the Z51 package. The optional package is designed for those that would like to autocross or track their cars occasionally. The package adds additional cooling for the car to keep it running well when pushed hard.

The C7 Corvette is arguably the best Corvette ever made. You get incredible performance and good handling from a package that is much more upscale than previous models. Not bad for a sports car that has a base price of just over $50,000.

Both of these videos are informative and show what the car is capable of, but the Motor Trend review is a bit more entertaining.

Testing The 2013 SRT Viper

2013 SRT Viper Testing

The 2013 SRT Viper is a great performing American sports car. The quality of the latest model is much improved from the older Vipers, but it still compromises on nothing (including driver comfort) over performance. It is a beast that has to be grabbed by the neck in order to make perform well on the track.

Many magazines have put the sports car through its paces, including Motor Trend. In this video you can watch as they test the car on the track and closed roads or parking lots. The car is interesting in the footage, but this is actually more about how they get all the data for the testing. There is also a bit about how to get the best launch out of the car which is very interesting to watch.

Watch the video and then let us know what you think of how they gather all the data for the car in the comments below.
