“Really, old boy, you aren’t supposed to build that sort of thing in America, y’know.”
The unforgivable thing, of course, is this: The new Corvette not only looks delightful and rides like the Blue Train-but it also is quite capable of macerating the competition out on the road circuits.
This dual nature is the classic requirement before you can call a pretty two-seater sports car. And properly so, for this is an honorable name, and only a vehicle with race-bred precision of handling, cornering and control can make a mortal driver feel quite so akin to the gods.
Unlike the gentlemen above, who has been a little slow in catching up with current events, most sports car people are becoming aware that the corvette is truly one of the worlds most remarkable cars. Because it does two desperate things outstandingly well: it provides superbly practical motoring, with every luxury and convenience your heart might covet, and accompanies this with a soul-satisfying ferocity of performance.
