It's Happened: First Test Drive of the New Corvette Stingray

And it sounds absolutely glorious.

You’ve been waiting months for this to happen. Up until now, we’ve only been able to see the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray at auto shows, in photos, or the occasional YouTube video driven by GM engineers. But today is different.
