Chevy has unveiled the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport at the Geneva Motor Show. According to Chevy, the Corvette Grand Sport "is a pure expression of the car's motorsports-bred pedigree."

The Corvette Grand Sport adapted the chassis tuning, upgraded cooling systems and performance technologies of the Corvette Z06 to create the ultimate track car. The Corvette Grand Sport is powered by a 6.2L LT1 V8 with 460 horsepower that can be mated to either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. A Brembo brake system with 14-inch rotors in the front and 13.4-inch rotors in the rear keeps everything under control and the Corvette Grand Sport also gets standard magnetic ride control, specific stabilizer bars and unique springs. An available Z07 package adds carbon ceramic-matrix brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport 2 Cup tires.

The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport offers an estimated 1.05g in cornering capability - and up to 1.2g with the available Z07 package.

A special Grand Sport Collector Edition features an exclusive Watkins Glen Gray Metallic exterior with Tension Blue hash-mark graphics, satin black full-length stripes, black wheels and a unique Tension Blue full leather and suede-wrapped interior.

The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport coupe and convertible go on sale this summer in the U.S. and in the fall in Europe.
