AutoCar.UK tested the StingRay against the Audi Rz8, the V8 Jaguar F Type and the Porsche 911 Carrera S. This review was the best review I have seen in so many ways -- and we have recently seen a great number of fantastic quality StingRay reviews. First, the "comparison, video demonstration" showed how incredibly well a great driver can "positively exploit" the StingRay's outstanding abilities; second, it presented the pure capabilities of the StingRay compared to these great European sports cars on their "home turf"; and, third, the results of this real world, damp/wet pavement series of tests are wonderfully fun to watch. Without giving too much away, StingRay owners, hold your heads up high! Embedded video test in link below with special thanks to Auto Car (UK)!

The seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette. It marks the return of the Stingray; in name, at least. It certainly looks good on paper: all-new styling, chassis, cabin and - most importantly - the new LT1 V8 engine.

But how does it fare against the best that Europe can offer? Can it out-accelerate and out-brake a Porsche 911? Does it sound better than a Jaguar F-type? Can it out-handle an Audi R8? Steve Sutcliffe referees the biggest sports car battle of 2014.
