FINALLY! This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for, folks – the episode of Top Gear BBC when Jeremy Clarkson and team review the C7 Corvette. Personally, I think this day is long overdue. At this point, these guys should be burning rubber on the Z06, but I am excited nonetheless.
Just a big of background for the uninitiated: BBC has never reviewed Corvettes with overwhelmingly positive reactions. They’ll admit that the car is fun and dripping in unforgiving torque, but they inevitably fall back on how ‘unrefined’ (whatever that means) the car is, and how much the dislike the interior. Then they typically demonstrate the flexibility of the rear bumper. From the looks of the preview, it would appear they are taking the Stingray head to head with a Porsche Cayman GTS. Should be a great episode. You can catch it on Monday, February 23rd, 2015 at 8:30 PM Eastern Time.
Check out the preview below, and for those who missed out – check out their review of the Corvette C6 Zr1 HERE, which wasn’t quite as scathing as some of the other things they’ve had to say about the ‘Vette.
