    Default Car and Driver Road Tests a Manual Equipped 2017 Corvette Grand Sport

    Now that the 2017 Corvette Grand Sports are starting to roll into dealerships and the manual transmission is still on constraint preventing dealers from ordering them, Car and Driver managed to get their paws on a manual transmission equipped Grand Sport and the test results are interesting.

    Their test car came heavily optioned: starting with a $66,445 base price, the $7,995 Z07 package, $2,995 Stage 2 aerodynamics package, 3LT trim package ($9,745), competition seats, cosmetic upgrades and more, all ringing in at $95,040. That's Z06 territory.

    After all was said and done, this Grand Sport ripped off a 3.8 second 0-60 run, which is 0.1 second quicker than their top time for a base Stingray with the same manual transmission and a 12.2 second 1/4 mile run.

    With the Z07 package, the Grand Sport pulled 1.18 Gs around the skid pad and an eyeball-popping 129 ft brake rating 70 - 0 mph. Those are impressive numbers!

    Basically, Car and Driver surmised that the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is "Gnarly...most gnarly!" We tend to agree.

    Below is the complete test results:

    Zero to 60 mph: 3.8 sec
    Zero to 100 mph: 8.7 sec
    Zero to 120 mph: 12.9 sec
    Zero to 150 mph: 24.1 sec
    Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 4.4 sec
    Top gear, 30-50 mph: 12.9 sec
    Top gear, 50-70 mph: 12.2 sec
    Standing -mile: 12.2 sec @ 117 mph
    Top speed (C/D est): 175 mph
    Braking, 70-0 mph: 129 ft
    Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 1.18 g
