“2022 Chevrolet Corvette: Car and Driver 10 Best"” – Car and Driver, November 2021
“We love performance. But we also love saving money. That's why the Chevrolet Corvette's appeal, its superpower, and the quality that sets it apart from the hundreds of other cars, trucks, and SUVs on the market today that didn't get the votes, is one we hold dear: It's the best performance bargain. But should you be thinking that the Corvette is more about the deal than the business of going fast, it is flat-out quicker around a challenging track than anything else on the list, even the lighter and purer-driving Porsche Boxster and Cayman.”
“Once you plop into the Corvette's driver's seat… its powers are now yours. A narrow driver's area and the tall wall of buttons bisecting the cabin keep things focused on the seat where the best stuff happens. The 490- or 495-hp 6.2-liter V-8, combined with the launch-control abilities of the dual-clutch automatic and the newfound traction from the mid-engine layout, enables blasts to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. Sharp steering makes it easy to slice and dice corners at up to its heady 1.03-g cornering capability. Don't worry about going fast, because repeated stops from triple-digit speeds take place without the slightest fluster. No matter whether you've selected the targa or the convertible, the roof comes off should your mood go from lap times to cruise time.”

Offered here in Red Mist over Sky Cool Gray leather is a 2022 Corvette Stingray Coupe with a mere 58 miles on its odometer, all added by its one owner. The car's VIN (1G1YA2D4XN5111828) decodes as follows:
1 = U.S. Assembly
G = General Motors
1 = Chevrolet Passenger Vehicle
Y = Corvette
A = 1LT Trim
2 = Coupe
D = Dual Air Bags (Front and Side)
4 = LT2 Engine
X = Check Digit
N = 2022 Model Year
5 = Bowling Green, KY Plant
1 = Standard Production Run
11828 = Production Sequence
Effectively, this is a brand-new car in one of the most desired of the colors available. In addition to the breathtaking color, there is literally no sign of even the most minor flaw anywhere on the body. Every piece of trim, every square inch of every surface looks as though the car had just rolled out of the Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly plant. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) All the “carbon-flash” gloss-black-metallic trim (the only chrome on the body is on the quad, squared exhaust tips) is similarly perfect. That includes the many air-openings, all of which are functional, and the removable roof panels. Factory badging—including the colorful crossed-flags hood emblem, rear-deck “stingray” graphic, and rear C-o-r-v-e-t-t-e lettering (all in black or set in black)—is correctly in place. Original split-5-spoke wheels in gloss black (with the Corvette logo embossed and center caps wearing the crossed-flags emblem) are mounted with Michelin® Pilot Sport S all-season performance tires. The open wheel design allows easy views of the Corvette-and-Brembo®-branded disc-brake calipers. Needless to say, the wheels, tires, and brakes are in perfect condition as well.
Inside, the many Sky Cool Gray color theme is a perfect complement to the exterior red. All leather surfaces (including the dash, door trim, and steering wheel) are gray with white stitching, a very handsome, understated combination. The 8-way power, GT2, contoured bucket seats are exceptional in their design and comfort. Cabin floors are carpeted in charcoal with protective carpet mats. A number of cross-flag emblems—including embossed in the leather headrests--ensure no occupant forgets the storied brand (as if). Digital instrumentation and driver-information interface 8-inch screen are perfectly organized. The entire “flying buttress”-style console is a design triumph; the shifter for the 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is located there. (Please view the close-up photography in the gallery to assess the perfect condition of the Corvette's interior surfaces.)
Views of the mid-mounted 6.2-liter, 495 horsepower Chevrolet V8 (capable of sub-3-second 0-60 times) offer satisfying glimpses of red valve covers, braided-steel fuel lines, and Corvette-branded protective panels, all beneath the overhead frame members. All engine surfaces match the spotless appearance of the remainder of this Corvette. Seen from below, all chassis and engine protective, aerodynamically efficient panels are in place and in perfect condition.
The C8's factory build and identification tags are properly in place. The 3-year, 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, and 5-year, 50,000-mile powertrain warranty remain in effect. Both key fobs are included in the sale.
While the more than 165 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '22 Corvette Stingray Coupe in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
Car and Driver nailed it: “2022 Chevrolet Corvette: Car and Driver 10Best.” This stunning, world-class, C8 Corvette will inevitably find its way into the hands of one very fortunate fan of America's sports car. More importantly, it will rack up plenty of memorable miles piloted by that individual.
Envious? We sure are.
