2013 Corvettte Grand Sport Convertible

A friend of mine's 2013 Grand Sport. He bought it about a year ago, and says it's the best one he's ever had. It has 430 horsepower, race-inspired suspension, and Goodyear Eagle F1s. I only drove it about 10 miles on a rural highway near my work, but I must say it was an unforgettable experience. The suspension was sporty but comfortable. It was really firm and responsive to input, but it didn't rattle my teeth too much when hitting imperfections in the pavement. Being a good friends recently-purchased car I didn't do any dead-stop romps, but I did give it wide open at about 60mph, let it kick down, and held until 125. Being the most powerful car I've ever driven, all that left something to be desired was the automatic transmission. The downshifts and upshifts both felt a little soft and played-out for my taste, but he bought it for extended top-down cruises with his wife, not racing. That's why he chose the automatic. Regardless, a truly awesome car. Maybe I'll get to take it for another spin this spring :D

This is what I mean when I say that GM cars aren't crap! I had a ride in an '06 Vette, one of the best experiences of my life.
