New Grand Sport Matches a C6 Corvette ZR1 on Track
The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport was as fast as the C6 Corvette ZR1 during a recent test run at Virginia International Raceway.
At the National Corvette Museum’s Spring Bash this weekend, very few details were released by the folks within GM, but we did get news of a few cosmetic changes for the 2017 Z06.
We expected the very first Grand Sport model would go for well over $250,000. After all, the first 2014 C7 Corvette sold for $1.1 million, and the first 2016 Z06 C7.R sold for $500K.
If history is any indication of what’s in store, Rick Hendrick will likely ride away with the keys to the first Grand Sport after posting a sizeable bid for the car.
One of the things that’s gotten lost in all the new C7 Grand Sport discussion is the deeper history surrounding the original Grand Sport.
