The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport made its debut last week, filling a performance gap between the regular Corvette and the higher-performance Z06.

While the engine remains closer to the standard Stingray, the chassis and suspension have been enhanced with track use in mind. Similarly, downforce-improving aerodynamic elements, enhanced cooling, an electronic limited-slip differential and bigger, Brembo-sourced brakes significantly elevate the Corvette's performance capabilities.

However, should you want even more, the Z07 package adds carbon ceramic brake rotors for decreased brake fade and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for considerably increased cornering grip.

Besides its mechanical elements, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport offers plenty of visual distinction from the standard Corvette. Wider fenders (to accommodate a wider track) and a Z06-inspired grille visually represent the Grand Sport's status as the missing link between the standard Corvette and the Z06. There's also a Heritage package that brings special fender hash mark graphics inspired by past Grand Sport models. A carbon-fiber ground effects kit is available for those who really want to drive home the point that their Corvette is primed for track use, while the Grand Sport Collector Edition lives up to its name with special paint and trim well-suited for garage display and weekend adventures.

Like other Corvettes, buyers have a choice of a standard 7-speed manual transmission or an optional 8-speed automatic. Chevrolet says the quickest Grand Sport is one with the automatic and the Z07 package, reaching 60 miles per hour from a stop in 3.6 seconds and the quarter-mile in 11.8 seconds at 118 mph.

Look for the Grand Sport at Chevrolet dealers later this year.
