Wheels are all the same on the GS, just different colors. They are the old C6 ZR1 cup wheels. Pure sex on a C6 Z06 IMO.

I don't mind them but a lot of people see it as a pedestrian effort on GM's part.

If it keeps the cost down and still looks good they can keep using those old rims all they want.

Tapatalk seems to be inserting "_thumb" before the .JPG and so you get the crap resolution stuff.

I do love that color as well. As much as I thought about it, its just not worth it to me. Love me some LS7.

That and I'm going to expand my hobby closet next year and need to keep funds in check... or else I'd be hard pressed not to do something stupid like this!

Does this just have the standard LT1 then? I thought it was cool how the C4 GS had a slightly different engine making more power to begin with.

INSTRUMENTED TEST
2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Manual
Even without the Z07 option, it's all the Corvette you need.

DEC 2016 BY K.C. COLWELL PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHRIS DOANE AUTOMOTIVE
SHARE
TWEET
The Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport might as well be twirling a butterfly knife at the intersection of Performance Avenue and Value Lane with a pack of unfiltered smokes rolled up in the sleeve of a plain white tee. It’s an intimidating thug from the Bowtie Gang that both outperforms and undercuts the competition. It’s a bully that goads others into street fights they can’t win and starts just as many brawls among friends (or co-workers if you happen to work here). Nothing at its price comes close to putting up the performance numbers it generates.


Okay, maybe there is one rival. Less than a year ago, a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 knocked off a Z51-equipped Corvette Stingray in a two-up comparison test. This Corvette Grand Sport, though, is a slightly different animal. With all the Z06’s go-fast bits except for the LT4 supercharged V-8, the GS proves that power isn’t everything. Our test car also lacked the Z07 package (carbon-ceramic brake rotors, upgraded suspension, nearly racing-grade rubber) and the competition seats. Combined, those options add $9990 to the price of a GS. The good news? You don’t need ’em.

VIEW PHOTOS

This GS hung onto the skidpad at 1.13 g and stopped from 70 mph in a lung-collapsing 136 feet. While its less aggressive tires likely mean this car couldn’t match the Z07-equipped Grand Sport’s time of 2:47.1 at the most recent Lightning Lap, we’re confident it would come close enough that we’d rather spend $10K elsewhere.

Atop those braking and cornering scores, add the glorious engine that unleashes 460 horses when you crop the throttle—it propels the GS to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and through a quarter-mile in 12.3 seconds at 117 mph—and you have quite possibly the best performance value on the market. All of the car’s might is baked into the Grand Sport’s $66,445 base price.
way neat.

The only contemporary that comes close to matching the Grand Sport’s performance is the Mustang Shelby GT350R, which starts at $64,270 without a radio. Similarly optioned, the cars carry essentially the same price tag. Arguing the merits of one to the other’s fan base is a futile exercise, as blue ovals and bow ties won’t get along until a common enemy materializes.




that'd be a tough call... C7 grand sport, or GT350.

oh i think i should make a poll... hmmm.
