Long a niche choice in the UK sports car market, the Chevrolet Corvette is suddenly being taken seriously by the both the press and fans alike, with the introduction of the impressive new Stingray model.

Tighter, lighter and meaner than ever before, as well as sporting some stunning – if not particularly elegant – lines, the Stingray is Chevrolet’s best chance yet to upset the British dominance of the front-engine, rear-drive sports car market.

But how exactly does it compare to the best we have to offer? Well, the kind folks at have found out just that, by pitting the Corvette against the Jaguar F-Type V8 S and Aston Martin’s hardcore V12 Vantage S.

It’s a simple recipe: a soaking wet Goodwood hill climb course, traction control switched off, fastest to the top wins.

Professional racing driver Anthony Reid is your adjudicator, and puts on an epic display of car control, wrestling these overpowered monsters up the hill climb in the name of er…science.
