The Corvette Grand Sport has a rich history dating back to the 1960s. Chevy knows that as soon as you start invoking names like Duntov, Penske and LeMans, Corvette fans -- and more importantly, buyers -- pay attention. In fact, those fans are well aware of the Grand Sport's racing heritage and know that these are often the most sought-after versions of the Corvette.

To add to that desirability, there's even a collector's edition for 2017, just like with previous versions of the Grand Sport.

Chevrolet says the new Grand Sport blends the best attributes of the Corvette Z06 and the Stingray, hitting a performance sweet spot customers are looking for. The new model slots nicely between those two cars in term of price and performance.

Following in the footsteps of previous models, Chevrolet reintroduces the Grand Sport for 2017. Here are a few specifics on the new edition.

  1. The Grand Sport goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds and covers the quarter-mile in 11.8 seconds. That's quicker than a Stingray and about a second slower than a Z06.
  2. The Grand Sport is full of angry noises and sport suspension, but it's still comfortable enough for everyday use.
  3. For 2017, the Grand Sport is offered as both a coupe and a convertible. The Grand Sport Coupe starts at just over $66,000, while the convertible starts at a little over $70,000.
  4. Power comes from a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LT-1 V8 making 460 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque.
  5. Brembo brakes are standard with 6-piston calipers and 14.6-inch rotors up front, and 4-piston calipers and 14.4-inch rotors for the rear. Michelin Pilot Sport Summer Tires ensure the car remains stuck to the road.

Current and future collectors will want to check out the Collector's Edition Grand Sport. It comes in Watkins Glen gray and boasts a blue fender stripe, black wheels, a bright blue leather and suede interior and unique VIN sequencing.

Look for the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport to be on sale by late summer 2016.
