2017 Chevrolet Corvette GS Coupe
The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the most iconic sports cars
in history. Drivers will appreciate its dynamic performance and
sharp styling. Because of the Corvette's surprisingly good fuel
economy, it proves to be a sports car that you can drive every day.
Even the base trim comes loaded with a lot of features.
For consignment, a 2017 version of the iconic Corvette Grand Sport
Heritage Package. A Blade Silver exterior with black highlighting,
jet black interior, a 6.2-liter V8 DI/VVT, and an 8-speed paddle
shifted automatic transmission, and in Grand Sport form, how can
one go wrong?
High intensity headlamps lead the way along with Xenon parking and
running lamps which are bordered at the bottom with a carbon fiber
splitter in front. A large black grille feeds plenty of air into
the engine bay and in keeping with tradition, a subtle but
effective Corvette cove, now barely discernible, is within the
front quarters. Noted are the double stripes only on the driver's
quarter top fender. A bit of trivia: did you know the stripes are
on all Grand Sports as these are a tribute to the early cars that
raced on various tracks including Daytona? Here they fielded 3 cars
all the same, so when a car entered the pits, in order to tell
which car was coming in, a crew member put 1, 2 and 3 pieces of
tape on the fender so they knew who was coming into the pits! And
it remained throughout until this very day on every Grand Sport.
With extremely raked back front glass, almost like a chopped
roofline, rolls gently up and down, and has carbon fiber Blade
Silver matching roof panels which can be removed for some extra
thrills and airflow. There is a carbon fiber hood, rear spoiler and
side rocker extensions which are somewhat an ode to the former side
pipes that would grace the predecessors of this beautiful sports
car. On back, racy taillights and a black rear roll panel if you
will sport quad exhaust in the center. Tinted glass all around adds
to the menacing aspect, and 19-inch front and 20-inch rear Grand
Sport wheels which are black painted aluminum are wrapped in new
tires which are Michelins.
Black leather GT bucket seats with 8-way power adjusters provide
the cockpit seating arrangement. Dual zone A/C is available, power
windows, a central drivers info center, and a telescoping steering
column with a leather wrapped rally wheel and paddle shifters front
this high tech dash. The 8-inch touchscreen offers up plenty of
accessible features including Bluetooth, Apple car play, Android
auto, 4GLTE WIFI, and XM radio which you'll need a subscription
for. A very simple central digital LED dash displays a tachometer
switchable to a speedometer display, and digital oil psi and water
temp gauges on either side. Analog pointer gauges flank on either
side and provide the rest of the data needed to carry on. Also
noted in the central dash are plenty of buttons to control temp of
seats, air flow front and rear defrost and A/C. A wide central
console which doubles as an armrest and storage houses the shift
lever and a wheel style mouse to make handling and suspension
changes on the fly. All beautifully taken care of and in near mount
clean condition for this interior.
Fairly unassuming until a pop of the hood, but there is a caged
monster under those plastic coverings! 6.2 Liters of V8 with direct
injection and variable valve timing. On back for this Grand Sport
is an 8-speed paddle shifted transmission and an active limited
slip 2.73 rear axle. All this adds up to an output of 460
All clean and rust free we see 4-wheel independent suspension with
active handling and magnetic ride control. There is speed sensitive
power steering, a rear differential cooler, and multi-mode exhaust.
Brembo brakes in power disc form are on all 4 corners with slotted
A mighty roar with the push of a button, and we were off to the
test track. Handling was wonderful, braking on a dime, and infinite
acceleration quickly overwhelmed the test track. Ergonomically it
is very comfy once you get in, (it's very low!), and all functions
were working as they should.
With hash marks, carbon fiber, front splitter and rear spoiler,
huge wheels, and all the handling and magnetic controls for
suspension available, you can virtually set up this car for a
racing setup, or a Sunday cruise, all the while you will look great
doing it, as you are in an example of America's Sports Car.
