If you live to feel the rumble of a powerful engine under your foot or love to look in the rearview at those you seemingly fly by, the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Coupe is definitely the car for you. If you can't already tell at first glance by the chiseled body and performance wheels, the vehicle has a racing inspired design, which conveys the same feeling of a full fledge race car, no matter where you are driving it. Every feature of the car has been thoughtfully placed, and every last function has been streamlined to grant drivers the ultimate driving experience. A removable convertible roof panel coupled with six speed automatic transmission and integrated paddle shifter that is incorporated on the steering wheel make up the distinguishing features of the 2012 model.

The car is a tribute to Corvette racing and the aggressive stance makes it even more appealing. The body is wide, yet sleek, and clearly ready to tackle the racetrack. Flared body panels harbor tires that are more than wide enough to support its claims to racing. The design is not only purposeful, but is aesthetically pleasing for the outside observer as well.
The performance of the car exceeds the expectations of almost every driver, even those already used to the iconic Corvette acceleration. Despite the fact that the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Couple can go from zero to 60 mph in only 4 seconds flat, it still manages to return decent gas mileage at 16 mpg in the city and an impressive 26 mpg on the highway. The vehicle is powered by a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that delivers 430 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque, which is more than enough power for the speed enthusiast. The vehicle's structure offers a perfect weight ratio, helping it hug ever corner like they were made for it. Even the Active Handling that was added as a safety feature manages to engage without feeling at all invasive or starting the driver. Although it is a sport car, as soon as you slip inside you feel like you're in a luxury vehicle with the impressive features. Suspension is optimized through front and rear sway bars to deliver a surprisingly smooth ride, even at top speeds. The braking system is enhanced through a six piston brake caliper at the front and four piston calipers in the rear. What this means to you is that the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Couple can stop from 60 mph in as little as 100 feet!
