2015 Corvette Parts

The seventh generation Corvette came into full realization with the return of the Grand Sport in 2017, joining Stingray and Z06. The new Grand Sport built on a legacy established in 1963, when five Grand Sport race cars were built under the direction of the Corvette’s first chief engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov.

With Corvette Racing in its DNA, the all-new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport was a pure expression of the car’s motorsports-bred pedigree. Combining a lightweight architecture, track-honed aerodynamics package, Michelin tires and a naturally aspirated engine, the Grand Sport offered an estimated 1.05g in cornering capability – and up to 1.2g with the available Z07 package. Offers estimated 0-60-mph performance of 3.6 seconds and quarter-mile capability of 11.8 seconds at 118 mph, with the available Z07 performance package and available paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission. With it's aggressive, wide body, the Grand Sport looked right at home on the grid at Sebring. Fender vents had a signature side cove that included the Grand Sport badge. A front splitter, special rockers and a rear spoiler with wickers were all standard on the 2017 Grand Sport.

Both the 2017 Stingray and 2017 Grand Sport boasted a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine with 460-horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2017 Z06 boasted an LT4 Supercharged 6.2L V8 engine with 650-horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The Z06 clocked 0-60mph in 2.95 seconds.
