One of the first supercar slaying Corvettes…
When it comes to the highest performance models in Chevrolet’s lineup, it’s hard to beat the C7 Corvette. Decades of innovation made the Chevrolet pretty boy one of the greatest cars to ever feature four tires and now they’re looked upon as Mavericks of design. One stunning example is the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. The problem is, it’s been pretty hard to find one of those cars in any sort of good condition. Until now.
What you’re looking at is a stunning white Corvette convertible with that exact specifications. For the C7 generation, this was top-of-the-line as far as performance and good looks go. Much like generations before, the Grand Sport was set up to be a bit of a collectors car that could tango with super cars on the dragstrip as well as the road racing course. That is exactly why it was given one of the best powertrains GM offered for its time.
That was, of course, a monstrous 6.2 L V8 engine which fires a roar of great proportion from its tail pipes wherever it went. Matching the boastful exterior decals, that power train was more than capable of making quite a few enemies on the track as well as the road. On top of all of that, it features a set of Z06 wheels as well as brand new brakes which couple with the Grand Sport package to make a perfectly handling automobile. Nowadays, the car presents itself for all of those willing to push it to the limits on the auction block. The only question left to be answered is who will take the reins.
