Even through video, the sounds emitted from 6.2L LT1 V8 fill us with glee. Thanks to in-ear binaural microphone recording, the sounds and overall experience of this POV test drive are vivid as can be. The vehicle of choice is the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport equipped with a 7-speed manual gearbox, and behind the wheel is a gentlemen from Winding Road Magazine.
Making use of the totally awesome heads-up-display, the driver easily carves his way through the canyons. The LT1 V8 hums along gracefully, releasing a mighty roar whenever the driver gets enough room to go wide-open-throttle. Along the way, the C7 Corvette seems to make passes with relative ease.
It’s no track-attack video, but we are given a good impression of the road manners of the Corvette Grand Sport. Give it a watch, and be sure to read our first impressions afterward.
