2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport: Track inspired limited edition

Taking bits from the Z06, the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport limited edition has plenty of show to go with its more polished handling.

The Grand Sport has ZR-rated 285/30 tires with 19-inch alloys at the front and 335/25 tires and 20-inch alloys at the rear. There’s also a Brembo braking package with 14-inch rotors and 6-piston calipers at the front, and 13.4-inch rotors and 4-piston calipers at the back.

A 460hp (343kW) LT1 V8, magnetic ride control, new stabilizer bars, electronic LSD, 7-speed rev-matching manual, and unique springs are fitted standard. As is a Z06-style grille, wider rear fenders, aero parts, and new front fender inserts.

Options include full length stripes, a heritage graphics package, and the Z07 package, which includes carbon ceramic matrix brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport 2 Cup tires.

According to GM, the new Corvette Grand Sport with optional Z07 package is as fast around the company’s Milford Proving Ground as the previous generation Corvette ZR1.
