The C6 Corvette, like every generation before it, further improved and optimized America's favorite sports car. The first Corvette to drop the pop-up headlamps after four generations of sporting them, the C6 also brought a larger passenger cabin as well as a new V8 under the hood. The Grand Sport moniker continued, indicating a more track-focused 'Vette. Up for sale is a 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible with the 4LT Preferred Equipment Group, the Grand Sport Heritage Package, and Z16 specification. Bearing only 16,400 miles on the odometer, this 'Vette is excellent if you're planning to enjoy it as well as preserve it.
Velocity Yellow Tintcoat is the paint code on this 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible, and it looks suitably speedy as a result. The Grand Sport chrome aluminum wheels glimmer in the sunlight and are staggered units. Measuring 18 inches in diameter at the front and 19 inches at the rear, they also wear wider 275/35 tires at the front and truly broad 325/30 units at the rear. There's a light metallic fender stripe as well, and the signature Corvette quad exhaust tips grace the rear valance. The convertible top is in contrasting black and offers a lustrous open-air motoring experience, as well as ample weather protection when needed. Inside, there's seating for two occupants with Ebony leather-wrapped seats. These seats are also power-adjustable and feature heating. There's an audio system with navigation, a Bose speaker system, and dual-zone climate control among the many creature comforts on offer. Behind the two seats lies a decently accommodating trunk that can take a few soft bags for a cross-country trip.
This 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible has a 6.2L LS3 hand-built V8 under the hood. The Grand Sport specification includes a dry-sump lubrication system, as well as launch control. Paired with a crisp six-speed manual transmission, the car truly is a joy to drive. Developing 430hp and 424lb-ft, there's always enough power on tap. Magnetic Selective Ride Control, coupled with stiffer springs, revised shocks, and larger anti-sway bars, elevates handling to a new dimension. The dual-mode performance exhaust offers a mild or wild sound, depending on your choice. Potent 6-piston front brake calipers grab 14-inch cross-drilled rotors at the front, while 4-piston units do the same at the rear with 13-inch rotors. Functional brake ducts keep these monster brakes cool, while a transmission cooler is present too.
