2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport launched

Inspired by motorsport, the new Corvette Grand Sport combines a normally-aspirated engine with various chassis and bodywork enhancements.

Upgraded Brembo brakes, recalibrated springs, model-specific anti-roll bars and Magnetic Ride Control are all part of the standard specification. Furthermore, unique wheels (19” at the front and 20” at the rear) come shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres and they sit beneath widened arches.

For those buyers seeking even sharper dynamics, the Z07 Performance Package is going to be available as a cost option. This consists of carbon-ceramic brake discs, carbon fibre aerodynamic elements and a set of Michelin Sport Cup 2 tyres.

Power is provided by a 6.2 litre LT1 V8. Its 460 bhp (343 kW / 466 PS) gets delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed manual gearbox and an electronic limited-slip differential. As an alternative, fans of two-pedal driving will be able to order an eight-speed automatic transmission instead.

Offered in either coupé or convertible form, the Corvette Grand Sport goes on sale across North America in the summer. European deliveries meanwhile are set to begin during the autumn.

Due to join the range later on is a special Grand Sport Collector Edition, which is finished in Watkins Glen Gray Metallic paintwork with satin black stripes and black wheels. Completing the striking look are Tension Blue 'hash-mark' graphics that match the leather upholstery.
