SHOOTOUT REPORT – what the Germans think of the new C8 Stingray versus 911, R8
Sprichst du Deutsch? Well if you don’t, allow us to assist. German magazine Auto Motor Sport has just pitted a new Corvette C8 Stingray against its fiercest rivals in an epic shootout. Pay attention. We hear the right hand drive ‘Vette is coming. So it may well end up here too.
The Germans are a particular bunch. Fiercely patriotic and hugely proud of their auto industry. Shoving a foreign car into a shootout test has to be the ultimate challenge. Especially conducted by Germans. Against German cars. For the biggest German motoring rag in the world. In Germany!
Auto Motor Sport is Germany’s top motoring magazine. It’s just pitched one of the first Corvette C8s in Europe against an Audi R8 and Porsche’s 992 911 Carrera S. The test was conducted by the title’s Sport Auto crew on the racetrack. Its objective quite simply, “to see how Corvette’s new C8 series fares against its toughest competition.”
