The Chevrolet Corvette C7 Grand Sport Convertible is a convertible, high-performance variant of the Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray, with bodywork from the Corvette C7 Z06.

Overview Edit

The Chevrolet Corvette C7 Grand Sport has a naturally aspirated LT1 6.2-liter V-8, which produces the 460 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque at 4600 rpm. The suspension system is tuned to fit nicely about halfway between the Stingray and the Z06. The Grand Sport weighs an estimated 3428 pounds. An automatic Grand Sport with the Z07 package will get to 60 mph about a tenth quicker than a Stingray automatic because of the increased rear traction.

Summary Edit

Erroneously renamed to simply Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport with no reference to the car either being the C7 Corvette or being a convertible, the Corvette C7 Grand Sport Convertible was added in the Car Blueprints Update. It is unlockable via Enduro Double Down as a high end Class A car. It has a starting rank of 1284, a MAX rank of 1607, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1778, and an Elite Tuning status of 1807, making it currently the highest-ranked Chevrolet in the game.

Performance Edit

The Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, acting as a continuation of the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS's stats, is heavily biased towards top speed and nitro efficiency at the expense of all other aspects. While having similar acceleration to the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, the Corvette Grand Sport's nitro, rated at 6/10/14, is considerably better and more efficient than the Hommage's. Only behind the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, the Grand Sport currently stands as the second-fastest Class A car in terms of total speed, reaching 322.2 mph (518.8 km/h) with an Elite tuning of [0,8,0,8]. With that speed, the Corvette Grand Sport is the third fastest car in the game in terms of total speed, just behind the SLK 55 SE and the Devel Sixteen Prototype. The Grand Sport has noticeably better handling than the regular Corvette C7, albeit still subpar in this aspect and with a wide drifting radius, putting it at mercy of the likes of the Aston Martin Vulcan, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, and McLaren MP4-31. The handling does tend to improve a lot with handling upgrades, though, so it is recommended to upgrade the handling and acceleration at the same time as opposed to one at a time like with most other cars.

Official Review Edit

The official review made by Elite HectorX stated that the car, having can hit the Tokyo wall in 7.821 seconds, which is .198 seconds slower than the Hommage. The Vette exhibits great nitro duration: approx. 10 for perfect nitro and 14.5 for triple nitro. It's easy to drive, and with nitro-brake, the Vette's drifting radius (which is not good) can be remedied. Verdict: As a really fast car, only the Merc SE and Devel are faster than the Vette, and a MAX+PRO French G time of 53.988 sec, which is .1 sec slower than the Vulcan and .6 seconds faster than the Hommage, and a bad accel, it will still be a referance to beat.

Price Edit

Tune-ups cost A8Credits 3,000 and take 2 hours to finish.

Usage Edit

The Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport acts as a refined but slightly downgraded Devel 16. Compared to the Devel Sixteen, the Corvette Grand Sport has similar acceleration (if not better or worse), slightly lower total speed (Corvette's 519 km/h compared to D16's 523 km/h), better handling, and better nitro efficiency. Although the Vette GS is generally slightly inferior to the D16, the Corvette GS proves to be more useful than the D16, for the following reasons below.

In spite of the car's bias towards top speed and nitro efficiency at the expense of all other aspects, especially with regards to drifting, the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is more or less an A king and a good alternative for the AMG SE (the Corvette GS made it in top 100 a lot in a heat event in French G. and Area 51). The Corvette GS is also a primary choice for TLEs should the player wish to retain low rank Multiplayer configurations for the SLK 55 AMG SE. Even then, the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, the Aston Martin Vulcan, and even the McLaren MP4-31 all have better overall stats than the Corvette Grand Sport except total speed. It should be noted that the Hommage's only advantage over the Corvette GS is drifting, though both are quite bad at this.

In terms of Multiplayer usage, the probability of winning totally depends on how well the user drives the Corvette. While it is generally faster than nearly all the high end Class S cars, its poor acceleration and drifting may otherwise tell a different story. As a result, for the most part, it is not suitable for San Diego Harbor, Sector 8, and Tenerife (except Cloud 9). The Corvette GS surprisingly does well in Venice, Dubai, Area 51 and Iceland, which are otherwise unsuitable for most cars with wide drift radiuses. With its bias towards top speed and nitro duration, as mentioned above, it will be hard, but possible to beat some of the Corvette's toughest rivals with this car. Even if that is possible, Corvette users need 2 laps to keep up with the competition. Even then, the Corvette user cannot make any major mistake; otherwise, the lackluster acceleration will bar the Corvette from keeping up with the Vulcan, Hommage, MP4-25, MP4-31 and even some slower cars. Needless to say, the Corvette GS will certainly make up for lost time with its higher total speed. Under most circumstances, the Corvette GS needs a flawless 55~58 seconds period to outrun the Vulcan; by this time, it will usually have overtaken nearly all other top end Class A and S cars. The player should also be aware of 'mobs' in Multiplayer that often try to knockdown other players, because if such players get to knock down a Corvette GS, then the Corvette user has nearly 0% chance of getting a podium finish, unless every leading car in that race wrecks. This is again, due to the Corvette's poor acceleration and handling. The Corvette GS is otherwise very competitive in Multiplayer, given that it usually has a high chance of getting podium finishes if used correctly.

Availability Edit

Following its debut in the EDD event, the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport was made available on July 1, 2017, until August 8, 2017, for the price of A8Tokens 13,250, sometimes discounted by 10% off to A8Tokens 11,925. Currently, the Corvette Grand Sport and the McLaren MP4-31 are the only exclusive cars from the Car Blueprints Update that haven't been made unlockable by Blueprints yet.
