The Corvette Roadster may be an iconic sports car in America, but it’s a slow seller in Europe. This is particularly true in the UK where the car is hamstrung by only coming in left-hand drive, which puts off many potential buyers. But there's no doubting the performance on offer - the 6.0-litre V8 engine delivers 400bhp and an intoxicating noise. In 2007 this was uprated to 6.2-litres and 430bhp, plus the optional automatic gearbox came with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.

This car is also the first open-top Corvette with a fully electrically-operated roof, but it lacks the quality and refinement of the best high performance roadsters on the market.
