Born to dominate the track, the iconic Chevrolet Corvette GS (Grand Sport) roars to life from its plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The 2017 Grand Sport carries on the racing spirit of the 1963 model, combining the power of the legendary LT1 6.2L engine with a lightweight, race-bred chassis and aerodynamics package that provides incredible grip and handling.
You can see and feel what the GS excitement is all about with a visit to the friendly folks at Huffines Chevrolet Lewisville. You’ll quickly realize why this Corvette is a favorite and a head turner with its handsome wide and assertive stance like a Cheetah.
The taut mix of steel and aluminum looks darn right menacing with its classy bold styling that only a Corvette wears; so much for getting away unnoticed. This Corvette looks great as it expresses its character every bit as much from the front to the rear. You might notice that the Grand Sport is a little wider than a standard corvette and as wide as the brutish Z06. The GS also shares its body panels and suspension setup along with huge carbon-ceramic brake rotors with the Z06. All these goodies are hidden under its sharp looking aerodynamic exterior along with its awesome engine.
When you slide into those very sturdy and comfy sporty seats for that very enjoyable test drive and fire the GS up, you’ll know and hear you have something very powerful living under the long and stylish hood. It is the popular 6.2-liter V8 fitted with its own dual-mode exhaust system. This V8 will unleash 460 anxious thoroughbreds with 465 lb-ft of asphalt gripping torque. You’ll experience that the acceleration is blistering quick and handling is pinpoint. The Corvette GS will let you realize it knows what it is doing. So just sit back and enjoy the ride.
With the different drive modes, you can take a leisurely drive through the country and then test out the curves or if you prefer some track work. Whatever you choose, this GS has more than enough brake, cooling, suspension and tires to handle the situation. Talking about tires, the standard Michelin Pilot Super Sports are road worthy, long lived and have an enormous amount of grip that keeps you and your Corvette planted to the highway.
Another great thing about owning a Grand Sport is that it will not break the bank yet you get so much back in value. Go ahead and find out why a Corvette has the highest rating in owner satisfaction per Consumer Reports.
