Test Notes
Road and Track, January 2008, Vol 59, Number 5, Pg. 74: "We all agreed -- without doubt, that the always hard-hitting LS3 of the Corvette had the best power delivery and was by far the easiest with which to tap its potential.

So when it came to choosing an absolute favorite V-8, we were torn:  Two of us chose the Corvette's torque-rich 6.2-liter, the other two the Ferrari's high-revving 4.3. In a tie-breaker, we went with the Corvette's LS3. This engine is truly phenomenal in its everyday usability and civility, yet it's insanely fast when you ask it to be -- all the while rewarding our ears with that most American of V-8 Thunder."
