Episode 5 Season 22, Corvette Stingray Z51 compared to Cayman GTS as they are both at similar price in the UK (65,000 pounds). At the end of the review the Stig tested both on the track:

Cayman GTS 1:21.6 - Similar time to Audi R8 V10
Stingray Z51 1:19.8 - Similar time to Porsche Carrera GT

This leads Clarkson to say "there is a disturbance in the force". :D
 
Nice job indeed. The Europeans are besides themselves... they don't know what to do with the fact this isn't a 'straight line acceleration only' car.
 
I just finished watching and I can't wait to get my car. I don't know about anyone else but I think I've watched every possible youtube video out there. My wife is starting to think I'm absolutely obsessed and I don't think she is wrong.
 
Here is the time list now for the BBC Top Gear track with the Stig doing the driving, some very expensive company sitting below the C7...

01:19.7 Nissan GT-R Series 11
01:19.7 Ferrari 430 Scuderia Series 11
01:19.8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Series 22, Episode 5
01:19.8 Ferrari 599 GTO Series 16, Episode 2
01:19.8 Lamborghini Murci
 
Hammond I'd a huge fan of the new C7, and Clarkson even admitted that he has a love affair with the Corvette (C6 ZR1, Z06 and the C7). He's just quick to rip on them, I think mostly for television's sake. I truly think he's in disbelief that these are built in Kentucky for the price point that they are and not in some exotic factory in Italy.
