Enter the Corvette Grand Sport. It’s like the Stingray and the Z06 had a baby, each giving the best of their DNA. The Stingray contributes the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine, knocking out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. As part of its Z06 genes, the Grand Sport borrows the cooling system, bigger Brembo brakes and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
The Good Solid brakes and an excellent cooling system make for long stints at the track. It’s cool to check out your racing stats in the easy to operate Performance Data Recorder.
The Bad The steering in Track mode is ultra-heavy and requires more muscle than most will be willing to give.
The Bottom Line The Corvette Grand Sport is an excellent value. If you’re looking for an affordable and balanced sports car, this is it.
