The Chevrolet Corvette C6 Grand Sport is a two-door pony car manufactured from 2010 to 2013 by the General Motors Company in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This new Corvette replaced the old Z51 option, using a steel frame instead of the traditional aluminum frame. The Chevrolet Corvette C6 Grand Sport package runs with a naturally-aspirated, hand-built LS3 V8 engine with a 6.2L capacity, which produces a maximum power of 436 PS and 575 NM of torque. A 6-speed manual is the car's standard transmission, which comes in a rear-wheel-drive layout capable of reaching a top speed of 186 MPH, with a 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 4 seconds.
The Grand sport includes wider wheels and tires than the Z51 model, enhancing the road holding performance and maneuverability, with Eagle F1 275/35 R18 tires up front and 325/30 R19 on the back. Its current value spans a $14K-15K price tag, which is reasonable for this excellent racetrack machine. Many experts consider it a much-improved version of the base C6, and its lower fuel consumption of 12.6L/100 Km makes it a better daily driver. It also features a better brake system using ventilated discs and offers superb track and street handling at high speed. It possesses an aggressive look, with a larger rear spoiler for better downforce and side rocker extensions.
