C&D Awards 2022 C8 Corvette a Top 10 Winner

Car and Driver test over 100 cars each year to find the 10 cars they would recommend to friends and family. Being Car and Driver, they are all about performance, but love saving money and driving a car with an interior that is comfortable and functional.

That’s why the 2022 C8 Corvette’s appeal, its superpower, and the quality that sets it apart from the hundreds of other cars, trucks, and SUVs on the market today that didn’t get the votes. Being one of the best performance bargains did not hurt either. The C8 is far more than just a bargain, it is also flat-out quicker around a challenging track than anything else on the list even the lighter and purer-driving Porsche Boxster and Cayman.

C&D had been doing a top 10 list since 1983 and this marks the 23rd time a Corvette has made the list; 1985 being the first time on the list. C&D says, “The Corvette delivers a supercar experience at a sports-car $62,195 starting price. And that next-level vibe extends beyond its go-fast abilities and test numbers. This eighth-generation Corvette has a no-excuses interior in its upper trim levels, with a nearly Italian flair to its multitiered and multicolored leather trim. Chevrolet also now offers more customization options than before, in terms of interior, brake-caliper paint, and, yes, even seatbelt colors.”

Gale H. and her newly purchased 2014 Convertible.

To me, a convertible is the only way to travel! I’ve owned a few over the years. From a Chevelle to a Firebird to a Chrysler Sebring, but a Corvette was always on my “wish list.” Well, it finally happened! I just took delivery of this beautiful triple Black ’14 from Corvette Mike! A dream has become a reality!

It’s a rare occasion that we come across an early C4 with milage as low as this example. With only 16k reading on the odometer, it’s hardly broken in yet! This one happens to feature a manual transmission which is also a rare sight. It’s believed that it’s had only two owners since new! The car is in excellent shape. It is optioned with a Delco/Bose audio system and leather seats with the driver’s side being power adjustable. It even has the correct Goodyear VR50 radial tires.

Special Price: $17,900!
