Chevrolet has been racking up accolades left and right when its comes to its performance cars. The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 has been receiving a lot of praise and now the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has been awarded a very prestigious honor from a very well-known automotive outlet.
Top Gear Magazine has awarded the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 its Muscle Car of the Year for the year 2014 and Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson is a personal fan of the car.
According to Top Gear: “go to the outer edge of your personal comfort zone, and the Z06 will meet you there. It’ll trade blows with the best that AMG, BMW, Ferrari or Porsche has to offer, on the trickiest tracks in the world. It’ll make you feel like a million dollars, but costs a fraction of that. America has a new hero.”
Clarkson picked the Corvette as his favorite new car for 2014 while his co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond picked exotics like the LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder.
“They’ve skimped on the trim to keep the costs down – Amstrad would have rejected the head-up display graphics for being too old-fashioned. In 1985. But they’ve gone the extra mile with the bits that matter. So we get a properly fast car that’s lovely to drive, for about half what we were expecting to pay,” Clarkson wrote.
