In its own category, the super strong, super trick new Corvette had a hell of a battle against the epitome of automotive exotics, the Lamborghini Miura. But when it got down to the nitty-gritty of deciding the Best All-Around Car, where price plays more of a part, Ferruccio Lamborghini’s $25,000 dohc V-12 sex symbol was no match for the latest from Chevrolet. We’ve always been Corvette fans, feeling that it has led the way in American automotive engineering. And the new Corvette, which we test on page 47 of this issue is in our opinion, the best yet. It isn’t perfect, but it’s the only fiberglass-bodied, independently suspended, V-8-powered, 4-wheel disc braked production car in the world-that alone is pretty impressive. When you consider that it can be had for less than $6000 we can’t think of a better deal-evidently neither can you.
