A convoy consisting of an Audi R8 V10, Corvette C6 ZR1, Ferrari 458 Italia, McLeran MP4-12C and Porsche 911 Carrera S could be mistaken for an underground road rally. That is until the pair of 2014 C7 Corvette Stingrays are spotted among them, and it becomes clear that it’s actually a bunch of GM engineers having fun. Seriously, benchmark testing a group of exotic cars to size them up with the Corvette Stingray has to have been one of the best days ever for all involved. At least we would think.
Some will say that GM is benchmark testing these exotics for a future ZR1. Considering everyone’s expectations of the seventh-generation Corvette family, that could very well be the case, and then some. Heck, even the outgoing ZR1 is still compared to the likes of the Ferrari, Audi R8 V10, and others — so it’s safe to say that whatever and whenever C7 ZR1 will come into existence, it will punch nearly every European exotic car in the mouth with a red, white, and blue boxing glove.
