The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is stunning!
The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is unbelievable! This stunning car is merely one-second off from the C6 Corvette ZR1’s posted lap time at the Milford Proving Ground. It carries over track-honed aerodynamics and offers up to 1.2 G in cornering capability. And, it’s running the naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine.
The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. There, Gavin and lead Corvette engineer Tadge Juechter unveiled the latest Grand Sport.
The reporter in the video says Europeans are not thrilled with the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport.
“If this was the Detroit Auto Show, I would be swimming in a sea of reporters asking me all kinds of questions.”
The 2017 C7 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport adapted the chassis tuning, upgraded cooling systems, and performance technologies of the Corvette Z06. They did that to create a Grand Sport to proudly carry on what the nameplate stands for. Moreover, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is a mix of regular Stingray and steroidal Z06. The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is basically a Z06 for people who can’t afford a Z06.
Thus, for many customers the last Grand Sport hit the sweet spot in price and performance and became the best-selling Corvette. This thing is out-selling even the base model. Consequently, they are expecting the same here. That’s despite a 190-horsepower deficit to the sixth-generation Super Vette. With the Z07’s sticky tires and the eight-speed automatic transmission, the Grand Sport will do 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds. That makes it tenth faster than the Stingray’s best time.
The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport will be available with the slew of exterior and interior trimmings currently available. However, an available heritage package will bestow your very own C7 Corvette Grand Sport with hash-mark fender graphics.
There’s also the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Collector Edition that adds an exclusive Watkins Glen Gray Metallic exterior hue with Tension Blue hash marks and satin black full-length stripes. Inside, Tension Blue suede and leather washes the interior cabin to create a stunning contrast from the Watkins Glen Gray exterior. Watch the video below!
