Evolution of a legend

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 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.

1996 GRAND SPORT

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.

2010 GRAND SPORT

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.

Composed and confident control

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.

STOPPING POWER

Large standard BREMBO® 14.6"/14.4" two-piece steel rotors give great braking control and available massive 15.5"/15.3" BREMBO carbon ceramic rotors with the Z07 Performance Package help to dissipate heat, lap after lap.

TRANSMISSIONS

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.   

WHEELS AND TIRES

Lightweight 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels are available in five finishes and are wrapped in super-wide Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport 285/30-19 front and 325/25-20 rear ZP summer-only tires for even more grip during extreme cornering and braking.

Z07: A Racing Heritage

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.

  • Unique suspension tuning and BREMBO® 15.5"/15.3" carbon-ceramic brake rotors are included with the Z07 Package
  • Z07 Package includes Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup 2 ZP summer-only tires

Performance Data Recorder

The available Chevrolet Performance Data Recorder logs video of your driving sessions, along with real-time performance data, onto an SD memory card so you can analyze your technique and improve your driving abilities. And when someone else is driving the car, Valet mode can capture video and data for additional peace of mind.

A mode for every road

With the turn of a dial, everything changes. Five distinct, selectable driver modes electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables to customize your Grand Sport for any road.

A pure expression of performance

Grand Sport combines signature Corvette DNA with ingenious engineering to create a stunning aerodynamic sports car with a wider body that includes sophisticated aerodynamic and cooling elements. With a variety of color options as well as unique striping and available fender hash marks with the available Heritage Package, you can truly make Grand Sport yours.

Make your mark. Then take it.

DESIGN DETAILS

  • Wider fenders accommodate wider wheels and tires for a confident, aggressive stance
  • Unique mesh grille and integrated Grand Sport-badged front fender inserts provide increased airflow.

The downforce to dominate

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.

A 65-year legacy that can’t be ignored

Available Summer 2017, the 2018 Carbon 65 Special Edition puts the racing technology of Grand Sport and Z06 on bold display. A limited run of 650 offers a new Ceramic Matrix Gray body color and distinct visible carbon-fiber components, including a hood section, ground effects, spoiler and more. Inside, the track-influenced design continues with Jet Black Leather appointed Competition Sport seats with sueded microfiber inserts and Blue stitching, and carbon-fiber interior trim.  

Grand Sport convertible

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. 

Where man and machine become one

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.

  • GT seat available in premium Napa leather seating surfaces with 3LT trim level
  • Available Competition Sport seat is built for cornering, with pronounced side bolsters
  • Flat-bottom steering wheel, available in sueded microfiber or wrapped in premium leather, enhances the driving experience

PREVENT

Corvette helps to prevent potential danger with features like Active Handling, four-wheel antilock brakes and Traction Control.

And if tire pressure is ever lost, run-flat tires enable safe functioning at a moderate speed until the tire can be repaired.

PROTECT

In the event of a collision, Corvette 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.

RESPOND

You’re never alone with OnStar® Automatic Crash Response. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar 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.
