The Corvette Grand Sport will sit between the standard Corvette Stingray and the super-fast Corvette Z06 and benefits from bespoke chassis retuning, cooling systems, and new performance technologies.
The naturally aspirated LT1 V8 engine under the bonnet produces 460bhp and sends power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed manual transmission. An eight-speed paddle-shift automatic is available as an option.
It runs the Corvette’s magnetic ride control system, albeit with tweaked roll bars and springs. The standard electronic limited-slip differential is also derived from the standard car’s.
The Corvette Grand Sport rides on 285/30 ZR19 (front) and 335/25 ZR20 (rear) tyres fitted to a bespoke Grand Sport wheel design. The Brembo brake system with 355 mm rotors and six-piston calipers at the front and 340 mm rotors and four-piston calipers at the rear.
