The latest member of the Corvette lineup, the 2017 Grand Sport carries on the racing spirit of the original 1963 model, combining the power of the legendary LT1 6.2L engine with a lightweight, race-bred chassis and aerodynamics package to provide incredible grip and handling. The 2017 Grand Sport features a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine, capable of 460 horsepower and 630 NM of torque. The compact design lowers the hoodline, providing optimal weight balance. A dry-sump oil system delivers oil flow through the most extreme cornering, helping Grand Sport deliver a consistently high level of performance. Grand Sport combines signature Corvette DNA with ingenious engineering to create a stunning, track-ready aerodynamic sports car. Every exterior element has a purpose, including wide fenders to accommodate wider tires, giving Grand Sport incredible grip, aerodynamics, airflow and overall performance. A unique mesh grille features brake-cooling intakes, and massive hood vent helps keep the engine cool while contributing to downforce. Standard front and rear brake-cooling ducts, large rear-fascia openings and unique air blades over the inlets on the rear fender all keep vital components cool during extreme driving. The 8-speed paddle-shift transmission offers the smooth control of an automatic but with quick, precise shifts and manual mode for track driving.
