C7 comes to England, as battle commences with Jaguar F-Type and Aston Martin Vantage.
The first 2014 Corvette Stingray has landed in the UK, so the guys at Goodwood decided to welcome the American sports car by pitting it against the once-great nation’s own front-engined, rear-drive sports cars in the shape of the Aston Martin Vantage V12 S, and the Jaguar F-Type V8S. Racing driver and former Festival of Speed “King of the Hill” Anthony Reid is Scottish – so apparently that makes him a fair adjudicator.
We assume that means he looks upon Yanks and the English with equal disdain. Switching all the electronic aids off, the trio of potent motors was driven up the fabled Goodwill Hill at speed in the wet with only some dozy sheep for company.
