I gotta hand it to Matt Farah. He runs a website called The Smoking Tire, and when he's handed the keys to the new 2014 Corvette Stingray, he does not disappoint in that department. It turns out the C7 'Vette is superb at annihilating rubber.

Luckily for all of us, the new Corvette is hardly a one-trick pony, especially when it comes with the Z51 package.

Matt's review echoes many of the great things we've heard about the car: it's got a lot of great technology, it's a fantastic value, it's absurdly fast, it actually gets decent fuel economy, it's quite nice inside, and it has an excellent manual gearbox, even if that maybe has too many gears.

It is, as he says, "finally a Corvette without excuses." Awesome.
