For better traction, the Corvette Z06/Grand Sport/ZR1’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the 720S (F:285/30R19 & R:335/25R20 vs. F:245/35R19 & R:305/30R20).

The Corvette Z06/Grand Sport/ZR1’s 285/30R19 front and 335/25R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 30 series front and 25 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the 720S’ 35 series front and 30 series rear tires.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the Corvette can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The 720S doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Corvette’s wheelbase is 1.6 inches longer than on the 720S (106.7 inches vs. 105.1 inches).

The Corvette’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the 720S’ (41.6% to 58.4%). This gives the Corvette more stable handling and braking.

The Corvette Grand Sport Coupe handles at 1.18 G’s, while the 720S Coupe pulls only 1.08 G’s of cornering force in a Road and Track skidpad test.

For better maneuverability, the Corvette’s turning circle is 2.3 feet tighter than the 720S’ (37.7 feet vs. 40 feet).

The Corvette Auto has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The 720S doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The Corvette’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The 720S does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The Corvette offers an optional heads-up display that projects speed and other key instrumentation readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The 720S doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The Corvette’s power window, power lock, power mirror and cruise control switches are lit from behind, making them plainly visible and easier to operate at night. The 720S’ cruise control switches are unlit, making them difficult to find at night and operate safely.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Corvette has standard extendable sun visors. The 720S doesn’t offer extendable visors.

The Corvette’s sun-visors swivel front-to-side to block glare from the side windows. The 720S’ visors are fixed into the windshield header.

The Corvette offers optional automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors which automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The 720S has an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.

Optional air-conditioned seats in the Corvette keep the driver and front passenger comfortable and take the sting out of hot seats in summer. The 720S doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats.

To help keep the driver’s hands on the wheel, the Corvette has standard steering wheel controls for the radio. The 720S doesn’t offer steering wheel audio controls.

With standard voice command, the Corvette offers the driver hands free control of the radio and the navigation computer by simply speaking. The 720S doesn’t offer a voice control system.
