New 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible beautifies the past

The Grand Sport came about in the 1960s and since then it has gone through various changes to what it is today. Although in the past, this machine is typically a limited edition version, the 2010 comes otherwise. This means that this will typically be a high-volume production model which is available in most markets (although not really here yet, but you should not discount the possibility)

The car comes fitted with a V8 6.0 liter engine which gets you through its 430 horsepowers. The pushrod 16 valve V8 engine which gets you from zero to hundred in merely 4.2 seconds powered through its 6 speed automatic gearbox coupled with the manumatic shifting system which is somewhat like paddle shifters. It also has another variant which gives you better manual control in its 6 speed manual transmission gearbox.

While the automatic version is easy and nice to drive, reviewers are more favourable towards the manual version but whichever one you take, you will like the Launch Control system which is easily activated by pressing the stability/traction control button twice, which revs the car into racing mode. As compared to the previous Z51, this new version might not be performing as fast in the straights but there has been reports that if you take this car to the bends, whack them hard against them, then you will see and feel the difference. Ultimately, this car looks every inch like a supercar although it might be more renowned to be a street car maker.

Essentially, the Grand Sport look good with the top down or up and one thing for sure, with its superb handling and great acceleration capabilities, this would utterly be one of the best looking and performing car in its segment.
