3. Can't argue with the LT1
A 6.2-liter V8 provides the Stingray with 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Matched with the six-speed automatic like we had it, the engine can’t be argued with. It is fast, with great off-the-line acceleration and a crunchy exhaust note always ready to wake up the neighbours.
And one of the most surprising features, the car wan’t terribly fuel thirsty. I averaged 16 mpg over four days of mixed driving, which is hardly a bad number for so much power.
