Corvette Racing driver Oliver Gavin has revealed Chevrolet will use the Geneva Motor Show to introduce an all-new Corvette Grand Sport. Details are limited at this point but Gavin posted an image of Chevrolet's press conference schedule and it clearly shows the Grand Sport will be introduced tomorrow morning by Gavin and Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter. There's no word on specifications but the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport featured a wide body kit, a larger rear spoiler, and a Z06-inspired front splitter. The model also had a retuned suspension, a high-performance braking system, and unique 18- / 19-inch alloy wheels. Last but not least, the car was powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine that produced up to 436 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque.

Corvette Racing driver Oliver Gavin has revealed Chevrolet will use the Geneva Motor Show to introduce an all-new Corvette Grand Sport.

Details are limited at this point but Gavin posted an image of Chevrolet's press conference schedule and it clearly shows the Grand Sport will be introduced tomorrow morning by Gavin and Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter.

There's no word on specifications but the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport featured a wide body kit, a larger rear spoiler, and a Z06-inspired front splitter.  The model also had a retuned suspension, a high-performance braking system, and unique 18- / 19-inch alloy wheels.  Last but not least, the car was powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine that produced up to 436 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque.

It remains unclear how extensive the changes will be to the new Corvette Grand Sport but the model will likely be based on the Corvette Stingray and feature a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that develops at least 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.  The standard model can be equipped with either a seven-speed manual or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission, so it's possible that the new Grand Sport could also be offered with two gearboxes.
