The latest member of the Corvette lineup, the 2017 Grand Sport carries on the racing spirit of the original 1963 model, combining the power of the legendary LT1 6.2L engine with a lightweight, race-bred chassis and aerodynamics package to provide incredible grip and handling.
Born to dominate the track, the 1963 Corvette Grand Sport was crafted from lightweight materials and packed the power of a 6.2L 377 CI small block V8 engine. Only five prototypes were created, but their impact on the future of Chevrolet racing can’t be overstated. All five original Grand Sport models exist to this day.
In 1996, Corvette Grand Sport returned to the lineup with a limited run of 1,000 as a way to mark the end of the 4th generation Corvette production. This iteration was equipped with the high-performance LT4 V8 in addition to the ZR1 chassis and featured the iconic paint scheme of Admiral Blue with a white stripe and red hash marks.
The 2010 Grand Sport was built on the wider Z06 chassis and featured the 436 horsepower 6.2L LS3 V8 engine. It was a perfect blend of performance and efficiency, going 0 to 60 in 3.95 seconds and achieving 1.0g on the skidpad with 26 MPG highway fuel economy. A Heritage Package featured signature hash marks above the front fenders.
The 2017 Grand Sport features a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine, capable of 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. The compact design lowers the hoodline, providing optimal weight balance. A dry-sump oil system delivers oil flow through the most extreme cornering, helping Grand Sport deliver a consistently high level of performance.
Choose between a 7-speed manual or an
available 8-speed paddle-shift automatic. The
standard 7-speed with Active Rev Matching
enhances the driving experience by simulating
heel-toe shifting perfection. The available
8-speed paddle-shift transmission offers the
smooth control of an automatic but with quick,
precise shifts and manual mode for track driving.
Grand Sport combines signature Corvette DNA with ingenious engineering to create a stunning, track-ready aerodynamic sports car. Every exterior element has a purpose, including wide fenders to accommodate wider tires, giving Grand Sport incredible grip, aerodynamics, airflow and overall performance. And with a ton of color options as well as unique striping and fender hash marks, you can truly make Grand Sport yours.
A unique mesh grille features brake-cooling intakes, and massive hood vent helps keep the engine cool while contributing to downforce. Standard front and rear brake-cooling ducts, large rear-fascia openings and unique air blades over the inlets on the rear fender all keep vital components cool during extreme driving.
The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Heritage Package features hash mark fender graphics in six colors and unique interior touches, like brushed aluminum trim with hash mark details. And with available full-length stripe in five colors, you can personalize your Corvette like never before.
The fully electronic convertible top can be lowered by the press of a button or remotely using the key fob — even while driving up to 30 mph — and hides beneath a body-colored tonneau cover.
