I’m not totally sold on the exterior styling, but you can’t knock the performance/price point. Kudos to GM and the Corvette team.

That being said, as someone who’s been...

I think it’s two things:

1: GM order tens of thousands of CCMs from Brembo for the Corvette line of cars, so there is a huge economy of scale versus much smaller manufacturers, and

Maverick787,

Fantastic purchase. I’ve forgotten the number of times I’ve checked out 675LTs for sale on Car Gurus! lol

Why would you need a third set of rotors?

You buy the car and it comes with either PCCBs or iron brakes. You remove those OEM rotors and replace them with the ST rotors; storing the OEM rings....

Thanks for posting!!

Interesting that Harris talks about what pretty much every other professional review of any Mclaren mentions, and that's that the front seems 'undertyred'.
