Comments & Reviews

  • Comments: The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport starts with the tires: Michelin Pilot Super Sports as standard, or ultra-sticky Pilot Sport Cup 2s with the Z07 high performance option pack, the same rolling stock available on the Z06. They're way wider than the standard Stingray tires (plus 40mm up front, 50mm in back), necessitating the Z06's wider fenders to clear the 285/30ZR19 fronts and 335/25ZR20 rears. GM's near-magical Magnetic Ride Control is standard, as is the advanced electronic limited-slip differential, and the Z06-derived chassis sports custom stabilizer bars and springs. The 460-hp, 465 lb.-ft., dry-sump LT1 V8 spins either a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic, same as the Stingray. The Z07 package adds carbon ceramic brakes. The bodywork is mostly Z06, with Grand Sport-specific front fender vent inserts and the Z06's wider track, open-mouth front grille, and large differential cooling vents atop the rear fenders. The Grand Sport wears Z06-spec front splitter, side sills, and wickerbill rear spoiler, finished in carbon fiber in Z07 trim and claimed to generate real downforce, though the Z06's clear plastic Gurney flap isn't available on the Grand Sport. A Heritage appearance package adds the traditional front fender hash marks, now connected in a horseshoe shape and affixed to both fenders, and a whole color wheel's worth of body, hash, and full-length racing stripe combinations can be specified. Inside, badging depicting 1963 Grand Sport #002 (the only roadster out of Zora's original five) appears on the floor mats, headrests, and on a dash plaque just ahead of the shifter. The brushed aluminum halo to the right of the center stack shows a subtle racing stripe, created by rotating the brushing pattern on the metal 90 degrees during polishing. Thanks mostly to the optional Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, Chevy says the Grand Sport accelerates slightly quicker than a Stingray Z51 with an identical engine and eight-speed auto—3.6 seconds to 60, 11.8 to the 1/4 mile, improvements of 0.1 and 0.2 seconds each. At 3252 lbs., the Grand Sport is 98 lbs. lighter than the Z06. With no supercharger to conceal, the hood is lower, offering a clearer view of apexes (or discarded Kools). All that grip, balance and refinement makes it frightfully easy to drive at speeds that would be harrowing in other cars. It's a perverse take on the "momentum car"—you avoid touching the brakes not for lack of power, but because you can trust the front tires to scythe through any corner, no matter how much steering angle you throw at it. With the windows up, the A/C blasting, and the engine loafing along at 1500 rpm in one of the Vette's many overdrive gears, both car and driver can exceed 1 g on the head-up display without a single drop of sweat. The jump up to Grand Sport is absolutely worth it. The suspension and chassis upgrades redefine the car's handling, turning the 'Vette from a sharp grand tourer to a track rat you wouldn't mind freeway cruising all afternoon.
