GeigerCars presents Corvette Grand Sport
Corvette Grand Sport is powered by huge 6.2 litre LS3 V8 engine with 430hp and 575 Nm of torque. Definitely, the car dont have lack of power, but for full satisfaction, the tuning company added enormous supercharger with a fat 2.3 litres capacity, which is put on top of the mighty V8.
As you can suggest the result is stunning – 588 hp at 6,490 rpm, and more torque than a tow truck - 738 Nm at 4,030 rpm. The monster accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in less than 4 seconds and the top speed is near to the take off one – 337 km/h.
Vette Grand Sport is an engineering perfection. More of the elements are taken from Z06 model like the huge brakes with 355 mm discs and 6 piston calipers at the front and 340mm and 4 piston calipers at the rear. The front diffuser and larger rear spoiler are also borrowed from Corvette Z06. Some elements of the suspension like sway bars, shock absorbers and springs have also been overhauled in addition to the six-speed transmission, while a dry sump oil system and differential cooler are also on board. The battery of the vehicle went to the rear for better weight balance.
With such amount of power, Vette Grand Sport needs big wheels and the option is 18 at the front and 19 at the rear inch light alloy rims fitted with 275/35 and 325/30 tyres, respectively.
Last, there are some special graphics added by Geigercars.de to the fenders, bonnet and boot lid.
