Launched in mid-2016 for the 2017 model year, the Grand Sport returned to the growing Corvette model lineup after a 20-year hiatus with performance more than worthy of the radical, track-only Grand Sports campaigned under Zora Arkus-Duntov in the early 1960s. Underneath its bold exterior, the 2017 Grand Sport is far more than a design homage to the original cars, representing the roadgoing expression of the lessons learned from the victorious Corvette Racing program—a seamless blend of the Z06 and Z51 performance packages with the incredible response of the latest naturally-aspirated LT1 engine.

Finished in Arctic White with a blue-painted center stripe and red interior, this example is offered with just 1,789 miles. Rare as one of only 1,738 Grand Sport Coupes built for 2017, this example is a Pace Car Edition authorized by Indy 500 officials and benefits from storage in a humidity- and temperature-controlled facility. Powered by the LT1 6.2L/460 HP V-8 engine with a paddle-shifted 8-speed automatic transmission, this Grand Sport features speed-sensitive, variable-ratio, power rack-and-pinion steering, Magnetic Ride Control and Active Handling Stability. The Z07 Ultimate Performance Package raises roadholding to an astounding, factory-advertised 1.2 G on the skidpad with special tires, uprated suspension and ceramic Brembo brakes with red calipers.

Aggressive visuals include the Grand Sport Heritage Package with red front-fender hash marks, plus lightweight carbon fiber body components, including the front splitter, hood and rear spoiler. While built for exceptional performance, this Grand Sport is deceptively luxurious inside, featuring the carbon fiber interior package and top-shelf 3LT Equipment Package that adds heightened comfort and elegance. Safety and ease of operation are enhanced with back-up and curb-view cameras, a head-up Display (HUD) and brilliant HID Xenon headlamps. Striking chrome Grand Sport wheels mounting Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires deliver road contact. Debuted as an instant collectible, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, exemplified by this low-mile car, will surely enjoy continuing demand among savvy enthusiasts of America’s Sports Car.
