The 670-hp track-focused Corvette feels more special than cars that cost three times as much.

An inherently special thing that feels it at any speed, with a presence just sitting still that cars three times its price wish they had.

Even though it was such a radical departure from every Corvette before, it didn’t feel appreciably different, like it wasn't taking full advantage of the shift in platforms.

“The Stingray is super nice, and it drives like an all-wheel-drive car in a lot of conditions,” Corvette executive chief engineer Tadge Juechter says.

The bigger wheels and tires, aggressive aero, and wider body make it look squat and sinister, far less awkward than the base car.

It doesn't feel much like a Corvette when you start it.

It revs to 8600 rpm and will pull so manically to redline that it feels like it can go for another 1500 rpm.

On Monticello Motor Club’s North Course, it’s a track monster, but also accessible to any skill level.

It’s a true motorsport setup, one that can sound like gunfire when it's engaging.

What it does—like in other Corvettes and the Cadillac Blackwings—is take every system into account and let you mat the throttle earlier and with more confidence, restricting power to keep everything in line and make the car as fast as humanly possible.

And it’s fast.

On a rough road, which the Northeast has plenty of, and with the Cup 2R and carbon wheels, it will feel harsh and can tramline with any imperfections.

Even though this is a track-oriented car, most owners will have it on the road, so it still needs to function like a Corvette.

It’s essentially the top price for the Corvette.

GM’s track record with performance cars has few blemishes, yet people always want to put them down based on perception, not experience.

That’s the case here, and with the proliferation of turbocharging and hybridization in performance cars, this was also likely the very last chance the Corvette team had to make something this exotic, this wild, this special
