  • Review: 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand SportWith a 430-horsepower V8 and a sticker of only $55K,

    the new Corvette Grand Sport may be the best sports-car

    bargain on the planet.

    The Good: Raw speed, Z06-style performance enhancements, removable

    roof panel

    The Bad: Some cheesy interior elements

    The Bottom Line: An exclusive performance vehicle at a bargain price

    If you haven't driven a Corvette in

    recent years, you may be shocked

    by how well the Grand Sport

    performs. The Corvette has evolved

    to the point where it's a genuine rival

    to far more expensive vehicles, such

    as the Porsche 911.

    The Corvette Team Cuts and

    Pastes Up an Awesome New

    Model from Existing Parts.

    By scrounging up some of their

    best performance hardware,

    they've managed to cobble up a

    new car that just might be cool

    enough to warrant resurrection

    of the storied Grand Sport

    moniker. The 0.2-second lead it

    enjoyed

    OVER THE Z51 at the 60-mph

    mark (3.9 vs 4.1 seconds), which

    widened to 0.3 second and 2

    mph at the quarter mile

    AS FAST AS

    A PORSCHE

    911 GT3.

    AT HALF

    THE PRICE!

    LIGHTNING LAP at VIR

    We expected the Grand Sport to

    better the Z51s time, and it did, by

    well over two seconds. Like all

    Corvettes, it has strong grip and

    excellent midrange power, with the

    added bonus of the Z06s stunning

    brakes..

    ZR1 has Ohmigod! brakes, stellar

    thrust, The ZR1 was 2.8 seconds

    quicker than the Ferrari 430 Scuderia

    and 3.8 seconds up on the Nissan

    GT-R (both from the 2008 event). All

    other things being equal, thats what a

    power-to-weight ratio of 5.3 pounds

    per horsepower will do for a cars

    performance

    Price base / as tested

    Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport $55,720 / $57,310

    Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 $106,620 / $119,370

    Culture Clash - Comparison TestJune 2010 Issue

    The Corvette ZR1 is a monster. And

    the Corvette ZR1 is a lamb. Hows

    that? Putter around town, keeping its

    supercharged LS9 6.2-liter V-8 below

    3000 rpm, and its as easy to drive as

    any sports car. But dip hard into the

    throttle and the ZR1s exhaust

    butterflies open while the car

    unleashes its full 638 bhp and 604 lb.-

    ft. of torque to the rear tiresalong

    with a glorious, ripping exhaust note

    thats music to any enthusiasts ear.

    For comparison purposes, we did a few

    laps with the PTM and stability-control

    systems completely defeated, setting a

    time just 0.3 sec. off our best with PTM.

    This required a lot more care with the

    throttle, but it should be noted that our

    times with PTM switched off were still

    quicker than anything the GT-R or the 911

    Turbo could muster.

    .the ZR1s performance and sensational

    V-8 music are worth nearly any price.
