All eyes on 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

grand-sport-876-grey

The all new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport looks part Corvette Stingray, part Corvette Z06, but more attractive than both, appeared at the Geneva Motor show.

The form of the Corvette is complimented by the combination of the Stingray’s 460 hp naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter powertrain accentuated with the body and chasis refinements born from the overly esteemed 650 hp supercar Z06. These include the grille, wide rear fenders, high performance Brembo brakes, standard magnetic ride control suspension and computer-controlled limited slip differential.

Ceramic brakes, sticker tires, and carbon ceramic spoilers are part of the Z06’s track-ready Z07 package for improved down force. In order to lap the Chevy’s test track nearly as fast as the last $120,000 Corvette ZR1, these extras give the Grand Sport enough grip to take turns at an astonishing 1.2g.

Convertible versions with a choice of a seven-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions of the Grand Sport will be offered when it goes out on sale this summer.

The price tag will range from $56,395 for the Stingray and $80,95 for the Z06, however, these are not yet final.
