2017 Chevrolet Corvette

2017 Chevrolet Corvette
The latest member of the Corvette lineup, the 2017 Grand Sport carries on the racing spirit of the original 1963 model, combining the power of the legendary LT1 6.2L engine with a lightweight, race-bred chassis and aerodynamics package to provide incredible grip and handling.

The 2017 Grand Sport features a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine, capable of 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. The compact design lowers the hoodline, providing optimal weight balance. A dry-sump oil system delivers oil flow through the most extreme cornering, helping Grand Sport deliver a consistently high level of performance.

Z07: A Racing HeritageGrand Sport is the latest member of one of the most storied performance families in the world. From the road prowess of Stingray to the track-dominant Z06, there's a Corvette for just about any driver. And Grand Sport with the available Z07 Performance Package takes driving to a whole new level, with 1.2g of cornering capability.
•  Únique suspension tuning and
   BREMBO® 15.5'/15.3'
   carbon-ceramic brake rotors are
   included with the Z07 Package
•  Z07 Package includes Michelin® Pilot®
   Sport Cup 2 ZP summer-only tires

The available Chevrolet Performance Data Recorder logs video of your driving sessions, along with real-time performance data, onto an SD memory card so you can analyze your technique and improve your driving abilities. And when someone else is driving the car, Valet mode can capture video and data for additional peace of mind.

Tour Mode is the default setting for everyday driving and road trips. Engaged systems relieve stiffness from shock damping and improve comfort for long-distance driving. Customizable gauge cluster can display audio, navigation and phone data.

Stay in control with five driver modes

Mode Selector allows drivers to tailor virtually every aspect of their Corvette based on road conditions and their driving preferences. With the turn of a dial, five distinct driver modes electronically calibrate up to 12 variables, optimizing everything from steering to throttle control for peak performance in every environment.

Grand Sport combines signature Corvette DNA with ingenious engineering to create a stunning aerodynamic sports car with a wider body that includes sophisticated aerodynamic and cooling elements. With a variety of color options as well as unique striping and available fender hash marks with the available Heritage Package, you can truly make Grand Sport yours.

Design Details
 

•  Wider fenders accommodate wider wheels and tires for a confident, aggressive stance
•  Únique mesh grille and integrated Grand Sport-badged front fender inserts provide increased airflow.

Aero
Nearly every exterior element of Grand Sport has been designed with an aerodynamic purpose, creating a potent driving machine that's primed to perform, lap after lap. Lightweight architecture and Z06-style rear spoiler help reduce lift, while large, available carbon fiber rocker panels and rear spoiler further reduce weight and contribute to overall aerodynamics. An available Carbon Fiber Ground Effects Package takes this aero setup over the top, for the ultimate in design performance.

Úniquely Corvette
Available fall 2016, the limited production Collector Edition comes in all-new Watkins Glen Gray body color with Tension Blue fender hash marks. Inside, you'll find a Collector Edition-exclusive Tension Blue leather-and-suede-wrapped interior with Blue accent stitching.

And the available Twilight Blue, Spice Red and Jet Black Suede design packages take Grand Sport to the next level of customization, design and performance.

Grand Sport Convertible
The fully electronic convertible top can be lowered with the press of a button or remotely using the key fob — even while driving up to 30 mph — and hides beneath a body-colored tonneau cover. Since Grand Sport was designed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, you won't sacrifice performance when the top goes down.

Where Man and Machine Become One

2017 Chevrolet Corvette
Grand Sport is furnished with a refined, driver-oriented cockpit crafted from authentic materials. Intuitive instruments, like an available Head-Úp Display that projects data near your line of sight, help you focus on the thrill of the drive.

- GT seat available in premium Napa leather seating surfaces with 3LT trim level
- Available Competition Sport seat is built for cornering, with pronounced side bolsters
- Flat-bottom steering wheel, available in sueded microfiber or wrapped in premium leather, enhances the driving experience

Corvette Connectivity
