On The Cover Review: 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport
Just when you thought they couldn’t come up with any more cool ideas for the Corvette, along comes the 2010 Grand Sport. This version sits between the snarling Z06 and the (relatively) docile standard Z51’s, giving customers a unique Corvette that takes a little from both. The Grand Sport comes with the standard Vette’s 430-hp, 6.2-liter V8, but it ups the performance ante with 14” brakes cribbed from the Z06, along with suspension upgrades and unique 18” (front) and 19” (rear) wheels and high-performance tires. It also comes with the front nosepiece from a Z06 wider front and rear fenders, and some purposeful-looking dual gill vents and Grand Sport emblems on the front fenders. The Grand Sport can be ordered as a couple or convertible, and a Heritage Package is available for those who want factory-applied stripes and hash marks on the front fender and specially embroidered seats.
