The 2013 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe is race-inspired from top to bottom. It’s the only car in its class that goes from zero to sixty in under four seconds, boasts 1g cornering capability, and still achieves 26 mpg highway mileage.
Grand Sport combines the best of the track-ready Corvette Z06 with street-friendly features such as a removable roof panel and available automatic transmission to create a one-of-a-kind driving experience. Never before have the words "Grand" and "Sport" gone together so fittingly.

The race inspiration behind the 2013 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible is obvious at first glance. The stance is low, wide and aggressive, and the overall look is both pleasing to the eye and purposeful. For instance, the unique dual front-wheel air vents increase brake cooling while adding to the strong, self-assured look that is distinctly Grand Sport.
Corvette owners tend to have a strong sense of individuality. Now, more than ever before, the Grand Sport can be personalized accordingly. Even the brake calipers and headlamps are available in a choice of colors, and a wide selection of dealer-installed Genuine Corvette Accessories are available to make your Grand Sport one of a kind…just like you.
The interior of the 2013 Grand Sport has been upgraded to provide improved support and comfort, particularly in high-performance driving situations. Optional suede microfiber seat inserts enhance both appearance and comfort even further.

Even the steering wheel, with its model-specific badging, has been improved with streamlined switch trim, wrapped spokes, ergonomic hand placement and thumb grips. From the nine-speaker Bose audio system to the padded armrests and center console and available contrasting color stitching, every last detail was considered in making the interior of the 2013 Corvette Grand Sport the most luxurious ever.
The Grand Sport model was first created in 1962 for the purpose of beating cars such as the Shelby Cobra and Ford GT in the high-profile races like the Le Mans. Only five Grand Sports were originally built, all of which have been fully restored by collectors.
