New Corvette Sting Ray By Chevrolet It’s A Gasser
The above is a more or less direct quote from any number of people as they alight from their first drive in a new corvette sting ray. On taking the wheel, they discover that the ride is much smoother than before, yet, handling is vastly improved as well. They find that there’s more stability in any and all road situations, but particularly in braking and accelerating on back roads with broken pavement or washboard surfaces. They can’t believe the enormous stopping power of the new brakes, which are 18% larger and feature self-adjustment. Except to say that it’s available in both a coupe and a convertible, well spare you a lot of colorful prose about the styling, because the picture tells you more than we could say in a week. Let’s get back to how it goes, which is great—mostly because of its tried-and-true 327-cubic-inch V8 engine and the new link-type independent rear suspension which allows you to use the full potential of that engine. This fully independent rear end is designed to keep rear wheel camber nearly constant throughout its vertical movement, and the fact, that it works is best testified by the look of pleased surprise on your face the first time you try it in a turn. It’s a gasser!
