2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Release Date
Among the sports present there was the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, a special version equipped with a V8 6.2-liter, 466 hp and equipped with a dedicated aerodynamic package for the track. Available in Europe from next September, you can order in coupe and cabriolet versions.
The Grand Sport is homologated for road use, but it has all the numbers to get on track without additional interventions: lateral acceleration of 1,05g to Pirelli tires (285/30 ZR19 front, 335/25 ZR20 rear), from frame to the specific suspension, in its enlarged roadways. The braking system is Brembo signed; specifically there are disks 355 mm front and 340 mm at the rear with grippers, respectively, at six and four pistons. The transmission is a seven-speed manual, but is also available as the eight-speed automatic.
For those not satisfied with the Z07 package includes a lateral acceleration increase rising to 1.2 g, carbon-ceramic brakes, Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires and increased downforce guaranteed by a special carbon fiber kit. As for the look, the changes concern the front bumper with dedicated inserts, a grid similar to the Corvette Z06 and a wider rear bumper.
