Corvette Of The Day: Supercharged 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport
For the 2017 model year, Chevrolet unveiled its newest iteration of the Corvette Grand Sport at the Geneva Auto Show. During its unveiling on March 1, 2016, it was announced that the all-new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport was the culmination of the car’s motorsports-bred pedigree. Like the 2015 Corvette C7.R Pro race car, the new Grand Sport combined a lightweight architecture, a track-honed aerodynamics package, Michelin tires and a naturally aspirated engine.
Under the hood of this particular 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport lies a supercharged 416ci V8 engine. It was constructed by Vengeance Racing, located in Cumming, Georgia. The V8 engine is built upon a GM LT1 engine block and is equipped with the Vengeance Stage V Supercharged Performance Package. The engine generates a maximum output of 774 horsepower and 668 lb-ft of torque according to dyno results.
