2011 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport
The legend of the Grand Sport started in secret. Famed Corvette
engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov sensed the threat of the Shelby Cobra
and wanted to create a lightweight version of the Corvette to rival
it. The result was one of the most coveted 'Vettes on the planet.
Duntov created a unique "birdcage" body frame, wrapped it in
thinner aluminum, and put in a 550-horsepower 377 cubic inch V8.
Once GM brass caught wind of the program, they shut it down. Of the
125 planned cars, only five were built. They were briefly raced,
with one even winning at Watkins Glen in 1963.
For consignment a 2011 Corvette Grand Sport that is bathed in the
"it " color just like the 5 cars that raced in times of yore. This
car has low miles, (18,492), and remains in showroom condition.
2011 was a year in which the C5 design was looking more and more
European sculpted by the wind and not a computer. Excellent
fiberglass is all bathed in Jetstream Blue Metallic Tintcoat and
the paint just sings on this machine. No hidden headlights, a
throwback to the originals with the Corvette Shark gilled cove, and
rear greenhouse glass along with the iconic round taillights deeply
inset onto the neoprene tall rear bumper. 4 exhaust pipes peek out
the rear roll pan and are centered in the bottom of the rear.
Interestingly this version does not have the hash marks on the
front quarters. 18-inch polished wheels are upfront and 19 inch is
reserved for the backs.
Stepping inside away from the Jetstream Blue exterior, we can calm
down our eyes a bit with some tasteful black upper and gray lower
door panels with a nicely molded armrest. The light gray leather
buckets hold you in the car nicely, and a center compel also in
black and gray races from the middle of the seats. A nicely curved
design dash has all the essentials for creature comforts and vitals
monitoring. A pop for the rear greenhouse glass reveals a nice
storage area covered in like new charcoal carpeting.
With this version we have the 6.3 liter LS3 V8 with EFI and its
rated at 430hp. On back is a 6L80E 6-speed automatic paddle shifter
optioned with a rear axle of 2.56. Noted a brand new Borla exhaust
has been put on.
Simply put, showroom underneath. New ceramic brakes and rotors
along with monster sized rubber are seen and cast aluminum C5
suspension keeps the rubber on the road.
Clean and mean for this machine which fires right up and runs like
the wind. Needless to say, it not only looks perfect but runs like
A showpiece in showroom condition ready to go and show. Excellent
amazing paint, tasteful interior, and low miles I see a 2011 Grand
Sport in someone's future. Feel the vibe!
