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 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. With a ground effects package, engine dress up kit and now all LED lighting just throw in the red stripes, so we know who you are and you're off to the races.
2011 was a year in which the C6 design was looking more and more European sculpted by the wind and not a computer. Excellent fiberglass is all bathed in Jetstream Metallic Blue 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. The hash marks are on the driver's upper front quarter. All lights exterior and interior are now LED. 4 exhaust pipes peek out the rear roll pan and are centered in the bottom of the rear. 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 titanium gray lower door panels with a nicely molded armrest. The light gray leather buckets hold you in the car nicely, and back bolsters keep you in them. A center console also in gray with black sides, runs 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 6.2-liter V8 with EFI and its rated at 430 horses. On back is a 6L80E 6-speed automatic paddle shifter optioned with a rear axle of 3.42 and limited slip. Then the engine dress up kit is on and it uses some molded plastic in blue to make up several coverings as well as adding an airbrushed injection covering complete with ghost flames…NIFTY!
Simply put, showroom underneath. New ceramic brakes and rotors along with new rubber are seen and cast aluminum C5 suspension keeps the rubber on the road. New shocks and all looking great underneath.
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 that too!
A showpiece in showroom condition ready to go and show. Excellent amazing paint, tasteful interior, and I see a 2011 Grand Sport in someone's future. Feel the vibe! Grab this tiger by the tail while it lasts.
