On Friday April 29, Chevy announced the pricing and a number of details about the 2017 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport, which is set to go on sale this summer. The Grand Sport coupe will start at $66,445, while the convertible will be priced at $70,445, not titling and other fees.
First released in 1963 and designed by the Corvette’s first engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Corvette Grand Sport is the purest racing form of the Corvette. The product marketing manager of the Corvette, Harlan Charles, said the new Grand Sport is “a worthy successor to the spirit of the originals,” given its higher degree of driver involvement and better capabilities on top of the Corvette’s formidable basis.
Chevy says the new Corvette Grand Sport will be able to go from 0 to 60 in 3.6 seconds, and with its lightweight build, specially designed aerodynamics, and other features designed to improve handling, the Grand Sport will have an incredibly tight turn cornering capability. The Grand Sport will also be offered with the Z07 package, which will allow it to reach 60 mph in less than 100 feet.
