Critics Are Swept Away By the Corvette Grand Sport

Critics are impressed by the increased traction and controlled cornering the Grand Sport is capable of:

  • Autoweek: “The Vette uses an electric-boosted rack-and-pinion steering setup, which felt quick on the curvy wooded roads. The wheel never seemed to turn more than a few degrees on the sweepers, and the slanted, roundabout curbs were stuck to like the Karussell at the Nurburgring.”

  • TopGear: “This gives the car more grip than grunt, which makes it the ideal track day car as you run out of power long before you run out of grip. And that means you can give it a proper thrashing without going into outer orbit.”

  • Road & Track: “With the drive mode selector in Sport or Track, body roll does not exist, and on the smooth, winding back roads near Atlanta Motorsports Park, those astoundingly wide tires had grip far beyond my courage.”

  • Car and Driver: “Left in touring or sport, the ride is admirably free of harshness and the car shrugs off nasty midcorner heaves and hillocks.”
