For 2011, the Corvette Grand Sport received the same refinements as the coupe and convertible with one notable addition – the Corvette Grand Sport could be equipped with Magnetic Ride Control as an option. When equipped with both Magnetic Ride Control and a manual transmission, the car also came equipped with four Goodyear F1 Supercar Gen 2 tires. The optional Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension featured magneto-rheological dampers that can detect road surfaces, and adjust the damping rates to those surfaces almost instantly for optimal ride control. It included larger, cross-drilled brake rotors. With its special equipment, the Grand Sport offered consumers a unique – and more affordable – blend of performance and amenities.
