Rooted in racing

1963 Grand Sport


Born to dominate the track, the 1963 Corvette Grand Sport was crafted from lightweight materials and packed the power of a 6.2L 377 CID 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.

History of the Chevrolet Grand Sport sports car

An aerodynamic achievement 

Engineers worked overtime to integrate sophisticated aerodynamic and cooling elements into the exterior while maintaining signature Corvette DNA. And because Grand Sport was designed to be a convertible from the start, performance stays high when the top goes down.

  • Convertible models feature fully electronic convertible top that can be lowered remotely at speeds of up to 30 mph
  • Wide fenders accommodate wider wheels and tires for a confident, aggressive stance
  • Mesh grille and integrated Grand Sport-badged front fender inserts provide increased airflow
  • Lightweight architecture and carbon-fiber components contribute to overall aerodynamics
  • Z06-style rear spoiler provides downforce to help keep Grand Sport planted to the track
  • Available Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package completes an impressive aero setup  

Get all decked out

We’re celebrating 65 years of Corvette by dressing in our finest. Limited to a run of 650 and available on Grand Sport 3LT and Z06 3LZ, Carbon 65 is wrapped in a new Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic body color and features visible carbon-fiber components, including ground effects, spoiler and more. Inside, you’ll find Jet Black Leather-appointed Competition Sport seats with sueded microfiber inserts and Blue stitching, carbon-fiber interior trim and steering wheel rim.

What a dominant heritage looks like

The Grand Sport Heritage Package honors the original model with hash mark fender graphics in six colors and unique interior touches, like brushed-aluminum trim with hash mark details. And with an available center stripe that comes in six colors, you can personalize your Grand Sport to fit your style.

Fits like a driving glove

Grand Sport features a driver-oriented cockpit, with a flowing design made from premium materials. Intuitive instruments help you stay focused on the drive, while available heated and ventilated front seats and dual climate control make for a refined drive.

  • GT bucket seats with premium Napa leather seating surfaces are standard with 3LT trim level
  • Competition Sport seat is built for cornering, with pronounced side bolsters
  • Precision hand stitching is available in a variety of accent colors
  • Lightweight aluminum and carbon-fiber trim adds another level of refinement
  • Flat-bottom steering wheel enhances the driving experience

Control is a virtue

2018 Corvette Grand Sport Sports Car Performance: side

Grand Sport puts impressive power in your hands with the choice of a 7-speed manual with Active Rev Match or an available 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission attached to its LT1 V8. A dry-sump oil system helps provide consistency through extreme cornering, when it’s needed most.
