Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Makes Surprise Debut At Geneva Motor Show

Written By:

Chevrolet has unveiled the Corvette Grand Sport at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

The Grand Sport moniker has been around since the 1960s and is given to the Corvettes that add the top end variant's uprated suspension and improved handling with the engines from the standard Corvette.

In this case the the Corvette Grand Sport borrows the 460bhp 6.2-litre V8 from the Stingray while borrowing the dry sump lubrication, the cooling system and the suspension with the magnetic ride control from the Z06.

The Grand Sport uses 355mm Brembo discs with 6-piston calipers up front and 340mm Bremos with 4-piston calipers at the rear.

The Grand Sport will be available with either a 7-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters.

The Grand Sport will go on sale in Autumn 2016 in Europe in both coupe and convertible forms. However, Chevrolet have not yet revealed the prices for the Corvette Grand Sport.
