With Corvette Racing in its DNA, the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is a pure expression of the car's motorsports-bred pedigree. It was introduced at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show.
Like the 2015 Le Mans-winning Corvette C7.R GTE Pro race car, the new Grand Sport combines a lightweight architecture, a track-honed aerodynamics package, Michelin tires and a naturally aspirated engine. The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport offers an estimated 1.05g in cornering capability - and up to 1.2g with the available Z07 package.
Heritage-inspired design cues and exclusive features acknowledge the historic Grand Sport legacy, established in 1963 to take on the world's best sports cars. Only five were built before a corporate decision suspending direct motorsports involvement ended the project.
