While you might be dreaming about the two super sports cars Lamborghini Centenario and Bugatti Chiron that were showcased at the Geneva Motor Show 2016, another unveiling at the show was surely a stunner – the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport!
The sports car from Chevrolet is said to be coming to the U.S. this summer and in Europe next fall, and while we are sure that the car might not cost any less, it isn’t meant to compete against the two luxury sports cars we mentioned about earlier. The pricing is not known yet, though.
The Corvette Grand Sport will boast several models, including “grand Sport Collector Edition” that will launch later this year in an exclusive “Watkins Glen Gray Metallic” exterior with “Tension Blue hash-mark graphics” special wheels, premium leather and a suede interior, apart from the coupe and convertible models.
For those hitting the race tracks, they can get the Z07 Performance package that helps boost the performance of the car. While there are endless possibilities for its customization, the standard 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport will have Michelin Summer Tires, electronic limited-slip differential, 460hp LT1 V8 engine with 7-speed manual transmission, brembo brakes, and a magnetic ride control.
“We didn’t hold back with the new Grand Sport,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. “For the first time, buyers can equip the Grand Sport with a Z07 performance package – which adds carbon-ceramic brakes, Michelin Sport Cup 2 summer tires, and carbon-fiber aero package that delivers true downforce.”
Which of the three cars you loved the most? Even if the Chiron looks brilliant, we’re sure you aren’t able to take your eyes off the Corvette!
