When racing is part of your brand’s essence for over half a century, you’re bound to produce some amazing motor cars along the way. In the case of the Chevrolet Corvette, 2017 proves to take their reputation to the next level with the release of their Corvette Grand Sport at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Their newest race car, piggybacking on the C7.R GTE Pro from 2015, features lightweight design, track-driven aerodynamics body style and a naturally aspired engine that can pull up to 1.2 Gs.
The power for the Grand Sport comes from an LT1 6.2-liter V-8 packing 460 horses, a similar build to the Corvette Stingrays, with a dry sump oiling system and active exhaust. With the release comes several additional purchasing packages including a Grand Sport Collector Edition that will be offered later in the model year for the U.S and Europe after the initial availability this summer. Pricing has yet to be announced.
