NEW CORVETTE GRAND SPORT 2017 – REVIEW

Chevrolet has announced the track-brend 2017 Corvette Grand Sport with a price of $66,445 for coupe models and $70,445 for convertibles, that they will go on sale this summer. The prices include the destination charge, but not taxs, title and other dealer fees.

With heritage-inspired design cues combined with track-focused chassis and suspension elements, the new Grand Sport builds on a legacy established in 1963, when five Grand Sport race cars were built under the direction of the Corvette’s first chief engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov.

“The racing DNA of the original Grand Sport race cars is in the 2017 model, adding greater dimensions of capability and driver involvement to the Corvette’s award-winning architecture, for a purer driving experience,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette product marketing manager. “It is a worthy successor to the spirit of the originals.”

The 2017 Grand Sport’s lightweight architecture, downforce-producing aerodynamics package, enhanced cooling package, electronic limited-slip differential and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires combine to offer a Chevrolet-estimated 1.05g in cornering capability – and up to 1.2g with the available Z07 package, which includes Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

The new Grand Sport also offers estimated 0-60-mph performance of 3.6 seconds and quarter-mile capability of 11.8 seconds at 118 mph, with the available Z07 performance package and available paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission. A seven-speed manual with Active Rev Match is standard.

Further, engineers adapted the Brembo braking system from the Corvette Z06 to give it estimated 60-0-mph performance of less than 100 feet with the available Z07 package, which adds carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors, along the PS Cup 2 tires.

In addition to the track-focused chassis and suspension components, the Grand Sport features unique exterior elements, including specific front fender inserts and Z06-style grille, as well as wider fenders and rear quarter panels to accommodate a wider track.

Grand Sport models are offered with the Stingray’s full exterior and interior color palette, including 10 exterior colors:

Admiral Blue Metallic (late 2016 addition)

Watkins Glen Gray Metallic (new for 2017)

Black Rose Metallic (new for 2017)             

Sterling Blue Metallic (new for 2017)

Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat

Arctic White

Blade Silver Metallic

Black

Corvette Racing Yellow Tintcoat

Torch Red.

An available Heritage package includes hash-mark fender graphics in six colors, with the hash mark detail carried onto the interior’s brushed aluminum trim. Full-length stripes are also offered in five colors. They are joined by the available Z07 package, five wheel choices and available carbon fiber ground effects to offer a wide and diverse range of customizable choices.

“The choices are almost endless,” said Charles. “The Corvette Grand Sport’s custom ordering options take personalization to an unprecedented level, enabling customers to create their own Corvette Grand Sport statement.”

A Grand Sport Collector Edition will be offered later in the model year, featuring Watkins Glen Gray Metallic exterior with Tension Blue hash-mark graphics, satin black full-length stripes, black wheels and a unique Tension Blue full leather and suede-wrapped interior. A three-dimensional representation of an original Grand Sport race car is embossed in the headrests and that shape is also used on an instrument panel plaque that carries a unique build sequence number.

  1. Weⅼl like Mommy mentioned, after we loᴠee eaϲh other aand love the world that Jeѕᥙs died foг, that?ѕ a type
    of worship. When we take into consіderation God and listen to the sermon or in Sunday College, that?s
    a manner of worshipping as a result of ԝe aгe learning how great God is and He likes that.
    Or after we sit round and inform each other wһat the bet things about Godd are.
