On most new cars that employ multiple cameras and combine their feeds into a 360-degree image, the quality is usually decent enough to show curbs and bumper edges without stepping outside. When the CT6 is “disturbed,” according to General Motors, all four cameras silently record footage to a trunk-mounted SD card that can be later replayed on the CUE infotainment system—or downloaded to an external device like, say, a local police sergeant’s laptop.

But the Corvette doesn’t have the CT6’s optional trick rearview mirror that doubles as a high-def live video screen.
