The big news for the 2017 model year is the return of the Corvette Grand Sport. Based on the seventh-generation Corvette, the new Grand Sport brings a number of substantial upgrades that make it the ideal choice for Corvette fans looking for a potent track car with Z06 styling and handling mated to a 460HP LT1 engine.
This special edition takes the upgraded handling and appearance that comes with the Grand Sport moniker and adds some special cosmetic touches for extra uniqueness. Along with a stunning gray metallic paint color, it features blue accents that harken back to previous Grand Sports. A representation of the original Grand Sport race car is embossed onto the headrests. Powered by the regular (and excellent) LT1 V-8, it features magnetic ride control, an electronic limited-slip differential, and Grand Sport wheels.
