Driven: 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

No limits for the new midline Vette.In 1962, Corvette chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov initiated a program to develop a lightweight racer to compete against Carroll Shelby's Cobras on the track. The Grand Sport Corvettes would weigh about 2000 pounds and draw power from a 377-cubic-inch V-8 with aluminum-block-and-head construction. A 1963 General Motors edict to end all racing involvement derailed the plan, but not before a handful of the Grand Sports were built. The prototype Vettes were delivered to private parties, who raced the cars with mixed success until 1967, but plans to homologate the car with a total production run of 125 copies were abandoned.inline_mediumwraptextright26338120/reviews/driven/0911_2010_chevrolet_corvette_grand_sport0911_01_z+2010_chevrolet_corvette_grand_sport+front_three_quarter_view.jpgTrue
