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 fourth-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 skid pad offering an EPA-estimated 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.
Grand Sport is the latest member of one of the most storied performance families in the world. From the road prowess of Stingray to the track-dominant Z06, there’s a Corvette for just about any driver. And Grand Sport with the available Z07 Performance Package takes driving to a whole new level, with 1.2g of cornering capability.

carbon-ceramic brake rotors are

Nearly every exterior element of Grand Sport has been designed with an aerodynamic purpose, creating a potent driving machine that’s primed to perform, lap after lap. Lightweight architecture and Z06-style rear spoiler help reduce lift, while large, available carbon fiber rocker panels and rear spoiler further reduce weight and contribute to overall aerodynamics. An available Carbon Fiber Ground Effects Package takes this aero setup over the top, for the ultimate in design performance.

The fully electronic convertible top can be lowered with 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. Since Grand Sport was designed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, you won’t sacrifice performance when the top goes down.
Grand Sport is furnished with a refined, driver-oriented cockpit crafted from authentic materials. Intuitive instruments, like an available Head-Up Display that projects data near your line of sight, help you focus on the thrill of the drive. Standard Grand Touring and available Competition Sport seats each feature a lightweight magnesium frame for optimal support.

Grand Sport helps prevent potential danger with features like Active Handling, 4-wheel antilock brakes, a rear vision camera, available front curb view cameras and Traction Control. Standard Xenon high-intensity discharge headlamps help visibility by emanating 900 lumens of light. And if Grand Sport ever loses tire pressure, run-flat tires can provide limited functioning at a low to moderate speed for you to get to a servicing facility.
In the event of a collision, Grand Sport is designed to help keep you and your passengers safe with seat-mounted head and thorax air bags† and a rigid aluminum frame structure that is lighter and stiffer than that found in previous-generation Corvette models.
