The Goldilocks Corvette Is The One You Want

If the Corvette Stingray is a little too soft and the Corvette Z06 is a little too hard, then the Corvette Grand Sport is juuuuuussssst right… The middle child Corvette is the perfect Corvette for your daily driving and track day needs and can be yours for the price of two cars. Essentially the Grand Sport is a Corvette Z06 without the massive supercharger bolted on. Chevrolet has now revealed a range of colors available for the Grand Sport, and regardless of what you pick you can’t go wrong as they’re all gorgeous.

According to Chevrolet the Corvette Grand Sport comes with:

  • Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer tires: 285/30ZR19 (front) and 335/25ZR20 (rear)
  • Brembo brake system with (355 mm) 14-inch rotors and six-piston calipers in front and (340 mm) 13.4 inch rotors and four-piston calipers in the rear
  • Standard magnetic ride control, specific stabilizer bars and unique springs
  • Standard electronic limited-slip differential
  • LT1 V8 engine rated at (343 kW) 460 hp, with dry-sump oiling system and active exhaust
  • Seven-speed manual transmission with active rev match and available eight-speed paddle-shift automatic with specific performance calibration
  • Available Z07 package adds carbon ceramic-matrix brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport 2 Cup tires

If you’re looking for a Corvette that’s more track focused but won’t readily kill you or your bank account then the Grand Sport is your Goldilocks ‘Vette. As for looks the middle of the road Corvette still looks pretty aggressive with its wider track, fancy lip and decklid spoilers, and a sweet three tone color scheme.

Is it just us or does the paint scheme make the Grand Sport sort of look like a robot’s face with some warpaint on it? We’ll take 10 please!
