The 2013 Grand Sport Coupe

It will make your heart race, whether you’re on the track or not. The 2013 Grand Sport coupe is the only luxury sports car in its class to boast 0–60 mph under four seconds, 1g cornering capability and an impressive 26 MPG highway fuel economy for an unmatched combination of performance and efficiency.

Grand Sport is inspired by racing, which means you feel as close to the track behind the wheel no matter where you’re driving. That performance DNA runs through every inch of Grand Sport, pulling performance from the track-ready Z06 and combining them with street-ready features like its removable roof panel, and available automatic transmission.

Celebrate 60 Years of Corvette

To mark this milestone in the Corvette story, the available Corvette 60th Anniversary Design Package will be available on all 2013 Corvette models. Showcased here on the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible, this package boasts an Arctic White exterior and a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with sueded microfiber accents. The optional graphics package adds a classic track-ready appearance with full-length racing stripes in Pearl Silver Blue.

The stripes run the full length of the vehicle, including the interior. The package also includes gray-painted brake calipers, a ZR1 rear spoiler and 60th Anniversary badging on the wheel center caps, steering wheel and seat head restraints to give a finishing touch to this sleek and distinctive appearance.

Performance

Racetrack cultivated, for the road you’re on

A fuel efficiency of 26 MPG highway paired with performance capability that reaches 0–60 mph in under four seconds, 1g-force cornering and 430 horsepower is nothing less than a milestone in modern engineering. And that’s how we see the 2013 Grand Sport — a milestone.

With features such as its dry-sump oil system, wide body stance and fine-tuned power-to-weight ratio, Grand Sport is more than a luxury sports car. It’s a force unlike anything you’ve felt before.

Suspension dialed to perfection

The available Magnetic Selective Ride Control™ stiffens suspension capability for twisty roads while providing a more compliant ride for city driving and freeways. Here’s how it works. An electromagnetic coil resides inside each damper piston. When an electrical current is applied — variably controlled by a microprocessor — ferrous particles in the shock fluid instantly bond, making the fluid more flow resistant, effectively stiffening the shock’s damping. Conversely, when the electromagnetic field is reduced, the fluid flows more freely, allowing easier suspension movement. There are two cockpit settings: Tour and Sport. Also, enjoy Goodyear® Eagle® F1 SuperCar® Gen 2 summer-only tires when combined with the standard manual transmission.

Launch control — power straight
to pavement

Put the pedal to the mat and let launch control take care of the rest. When there’s this much power, launch control is the perfect middleman between you and sheer bliss. Standard with the short-throw 6-speed manual gearbox, it modulates engine rpm in competitive mode to lay the power down more smoothly while providing consistent acceleration times on the test track. It’s a feature for those who like to compete in club-sanctioned closed-course track events, but may just tempt others to start.

Athletic exterior design

In Grand Sport, you’ll recognize the competitive and athletic look immediately. We don’t just talk racing inspiration, we show it off. You’ll see it in the wide and aggressive stance, flared body style, and other design cues that nod directly to racing. It’s design that’s both pleasurable and purposeful, as in the dual front-wheel air vents unique to Grand Sport, allowing for brake cooling yet giving Grand Sport a bold, chiseled appearance and echoed in its badging as well as optional Black Grand Sport Fender badging.

Classically Aggressive Exterior

Rounded fenders and a lean, grounded body frame are classic Corvette design elements that have been the foundation of its exterior design for 60 years. It’s what makes a Corvette unmistakable and irresistible. Honor the Corvette heritage with the 60th Anniversary Design Package, which boasts an Arctic White exterior and a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with sueded microfiber accents.

Open-air exhilaration

Make the world your interior with the standard removable roof panel, or the available transparent roof panel. It’s easy to handle and stores quickly and conveniently in the rear cargo area, snapping in place while leaving space for additional items. Opt for the available Dual Roof Package to enjoy both solid and transparent roofs panels, because you never know what mood you’ll be in.

It’s personal

Individuality is a trademark of both Corvette and Corvette owners. And now more than ever, owners can personalize their 2013 Corvette by selecting the available brake caliper color of their choice on Grand Sport's larger cross-drilled brakes – available in dark gray metallic, red, silver and yellow. Owners also have the option to select headlamp colors, available in cyber gray, silver or black. This, along with extensive dealer-installed Genuine Corvette Accessories, can make your Corvette Grand Sport coupe unique, like you.

Refinement at every touch

The Grand Sport interior emphasizes greater driving support and comfort from its upgraded seat design to its padded center console and armrests. Seats include larger bolsters on the seatback and cushion areas for increased support and comfort, especially in high-performance driving.

Optional sueded microfiber seat inserts complement the design even further, as does the steering wheel featuring model-specific badges, streamlined switch trim, wrapped spokes, ergonomic hand placement and thumb grips.

No detail was overlooked in order to create the most luxurious Corvette interior to date such as the available nine-speaker Bose® Premium Sound System including instrument panel tweeters and enhanced bass speakers in each door. Softening the interior are the padded center console and armrests, while the added visual touch of contrasting color stitching — in red, blue and yellow — is available with the Custom Leather-Wrapped Interior Package on the 4LT trim level.

Safety

Protection is great, prevention is better

Our philosophy on safety emphasizes prevention with important features such as Active Handling, run-flat tires and four-wheel antilock brakes, but in the event of a collision, Grand Sport is engineered for safety before, during and — thanks to OnStar® — after a collision to help keep you protected.

Before

Active Handling and four-wheel antilock brakes help you stay on the road and in control to help avoid crashes in the first place, while standard high-intensity discharge xenon headlamps shed 900 lumens of light onto the road for excellent visibility. And if there’s a loss of tire pressure, its run-flat tires help enable safe function for some distance at a moderate speed until the tire can be repaired.

During

In the event of a collision, Corvette is designed to help keep you and your passengers protected with frontal and side-impact air bags that help protect you.

After

OnStar® with Directions & Connections® and Automatic Crash Response uses built-in sensors that can automatically alert an Advisor, who is immediately connected into your vehicle and can request emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location — even if you’re unable to respond. Standard for the first six months.

How Sustainable is the
Corvette?

Check out its “Ecologic” Features. Here at Chevrolet, we
believe in being a responsible steward of our environment.
Recently, we’ve developed a new way to communicate
some of the environmentally significant features of each
vehicle we make. We call it “Ecologic.”

 

Every aspect of Ecologic is audited by Two Tomorrows, an independent third party sustainability auditor. To learn more about Ecologic and the Two Tomorrows’ process, click here.

Fuel-Saving Technologies

Low-mass materials, such as an aluminum cockpit structure, lightweight composite body panels, balsa wood floor panel and an aluminum engine block and cylinder head, reduce engine workload and contribute to better fuel economy.

A six-speed transmission allows the engine to operate at a lower rate of speed as compared to transmissions with fewer gears, which results in better fuel economy. Transmissions employ shift management technologies when maximum engine power is not required. When these technologies engage, engine workload is reduced, which contributes to better fuel economy. Manual transmission has skip shift technology (1st to 4th). Automatic transmission has 2nd gear start.

The engine has been factory-filled with engine oil meeting GM's new dexos™ specification, which has improved viscosity characteristics as compared to the previous GF-4 oil, contributing to better fuel economy.

Responsible Manufacturing

The engine facilities are landfill-free. These facilities use a process to reuse, recycle or convert to energy all waste created in their daily operations, which conserves resources. Some water and engine-air deflectors are manufactured with more than 99% recycled content, which includes used tires. Recycled material conserves resources and reduces landfill deposits.

The Toledo, OH, transmission facility (automatic transmission only) features a designated habitat area certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council, which provides ecological benefits.The Bowling Green, KY, assembly plant features solar charging canopies on the grounds, which conserves resources and lessens dependence on fossil fuels.

Landfill gas supplies 16% of the energy to heat and cool the Toledo, OH, transmission facility (automatic transmission only), which makes the facility less reliant on fossil fuels.

End-of-Life Recyclability

After the vehicle’s useful life, 85% of it is recyclable. The majority of its components can be broken down and recycled, which conserves resources and reduces landfill deposits.
