The latest member of the Corvette lineup, the all new Corvette 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.
Grand Sport combines signature Corvette DNA with ingenious engineering to create a stunning, track-ready aerodynamic machine. 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 all new Corvette Grand Sport features a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine, capable of 466 horsepower and 630 Nm 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.
Large standard 371mm/365mm BREMBO® two-piece steel rotors give great braking control and available massive 394mm/388mm BREMBO® carbon ceramic rotors with the Z07 Performance Package help to dissipate heat lap after lap.
The suspension system includes standard Magnetic Ride technology that adapts every 10-15 milliseconds, stiffening the suspension for performance driving without sacrificing a smooth ride. Standard Electronic Limited-Slip Differential is designed to improve stability and responsiveness, improving steering feel, handling, balance and traction. It all adds up to an estimated 1.05g lateral g-force and an incredible 1.2g with the Z07 Performance Package.
Lightweight 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels are available in several finishes and are wrapped in super wide Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport 285/30-19 front and 335/25-20 rear ZR summer-only tires for even more grip during extreme cornering and braking.
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 100 in 4.5 seconds and achieving 1.0g on the skidpad and a power-to-weight ratio of 3.3 kg/hp. A Heritage Package featured signature hash marks above the front fenders.
