How come the short weeks are often the busiest? We had a lot to talk about in the automotive world this week, with Lucid’s new Air EV making its official debut, in addition to Maserati’s new MC20 sports car. On top of that, a number of important reviews hit the pages of Roadshow, including a full test of the most basic $59,995 Chevy Corvette. Here’s a look back at all that and more for the week ending Sept. 12.
The base 2020 Chevy Corvette is a whole lot of car for $60K
Chevy made a huge splash when it announced the C8 Corvette would start below $60,000 including delivery fees. But honestly, we never thought we’d actually see one of the fabled base cars. That all changed when Chevy delivered this Ceramic-colored C8 for testing, and as it turns out, the $59,995 Corvette is absolutely the performance bargain of the year.
The Audi R8 is one of the world’s best supercars. It’s fast, agile and turns heads wherever it goes. But it’s also a comfortable and tech-rich daily driver, as we find out in this in-depth review of the droptop Spyder variant.
