Who likes hot laps? We like hot laps! Especially in the latest from Chevrolet. If you like the looks of the Z06 but without the weight and complexity of a supercharger, the Corvette Grand Sport is the answer. Making use of the same 6.2 liter V8 as the Stingray, it offers 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque to a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. Most of the chassis and aerodynamic parts are borrowed from the Z06, including the dry sump oil system. The Grand Sport is an amalgam of Stingray and Z06, and it is priced accordingly as the mid-level model.The name has been used on track focused Vettes since 1963, and we’re glad it has returned.

Grand Sport History

To see how it compares to a Porsche GT3 RS, Auto Sport magazine filmed a comparison at the Hockenheimring. Corvettes are popular in Germany, even with fierce competition from the domestic brands. Filmed from a cockpit mounted camera, Grand Sport has the ability to record a front bumper view with the Performance Data Recorder. For $65,450 you will have a world class sports car rated at 26 mpg. Not bad considering the price and fuel mileage of others. Turn up the volume and stay with us for more Corvette action.
