The Chevrolet Corvette is an American icon, and this all-new version plays on its past by reviving the Stingray name

First Look: 2009 Chevrolet Corvette • 12 September 2008

New to the Z06 is a larger dry-sump oiling system (up to 10.5 quarts from 8) borrowed from the ZR1; a 10-spoke wheel design offered in four colors; new trim fashioned to the interior, including door sills with the Z06 logo; and an upgraded audio system. The Z06 starts at $72,405, up $280 over last year's MSRP. The front rotors are acted upon by large, red-painted six-piston calipers that use six individual brake pads. Individual brake pads are used because they deliver more equalized wear compared to what would otherwise be a pair of very long single-piece pads. For the rear brakes, four-piston calipers with four individual brake pads are used. A four-channel ABS system is standard, as is a very competent active handling system - complete with a Competitive Driving mode.

It's worth noting that the gentler launch technique is easier on the tires, doesn't leave big streaks on the pavement, and adds only two to three tenths, so it may be worth utilizing against less threatening opponents at the local dragstrip. Oh, and bracket-racers, take note: Seven quarter-mile runs using different launch techniques spanned just 0.22 second and 2.03 mph. This is due in no small part to refinements in the gearbox that facilitate smooth quick shifts every time (balky 2-3 upshifts scuttled many an accel run in earlier C6s). Hold the frills, and you can duplicate the performance of our Z51 for $48,885 or splurge on a loaded example like our photo car for $61,485-or wait another year for the 650-horse Blue Devil/Stingray to raise the stakes again. Maybe then we'll see 400-horse Impalas and 200-horsepower Aveos.

First Drive: 2008 Chevrolet Corvette • 3 June 2007

"Lighter and more precise" are apt descriptions of the steering as well, thanks primarily to tighter machining tolerances for the rack-and-pinion gears and a stiffer intermediate shaft. With less slop in the system there's less filtering of the data the tires are picking up at the road surface. The cornering effort perceived through the steering wheel builds nicely as you lean the car harder into a bend. It's no Porsche helm for road feel (name a front-engine car that can touch that bogey), but it's closing in on BMW and better than Mercedes . Boxster, Cayman, and Z4 intenders should carefully examine a new Corvette-and the increasingly shaky foundations of their biases against it.

First Look: 2006 Chevrolet Corvette • 6 September 2006

This ergonomic booboo aside, the Vette's new tranny is a jewel. It's a modern piece of engineering and performs as well as the rest of the car. Attention, enthusiast drivers: You are now free to order up a clutchless Corvette, if you so choose.
