Watch An English Guy Gush Over The New Corvette Grand Sport

Video

Just waiting for that German review.

The days when the Chevrolet Corvette was considered to be nothing more than a powerful V8 bolted into an refined sports car are over. The "Plastic Fantastic?" What’s that? The C7 Corvette Stingray ditched that old stigma forever and the uber high-performance version, the Z06, made clear the new world order even further. Thing is, the Z06 is simply too much performance for some and the standard Stingray, even with the Z51 Performance Package, may still not be enough.

That’s where the Corvette Grand Sport steps in, and our English-accented friends over at Carfection recently got behind the wheel of one. What was it like to be behind the wheel of all-American high-performance? Try a 0-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds. A 6.2-liter V8 with 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque helps to make that happen.

But does the Grand Sport have enough refinement for those used to the likes of Aston Martins, Porsches and Ferraris? Short answer: yes. We also happened to be on hand when the C7 Corvette Grand Sport made its European debut last March at Geneva. Needless to say, it garnered an awful lot of well-deserved attention. To sum it all up, Chevrolet has finally built a truly world class high-performance machine and the Grand Sport takes it to yet another level.
