In Tour mode, drivers will not need to apply a lot of force to stop the car and will have a comfortable brake feel for everyday driving. Sport will give a more immediate and stronger-biting feel while in Track, the braking will be more linear while still having an aggressive feel at the limit to allow drivers to trail-brake during hard driving.

That said, the Corvette is not the first nor only car to have such a feature. BMW's M8 is touted to have such a similarly advance braking system.
