It's a great time to be a Corvette fan! Not only did the car's sixth generation see the return of both the brutal Z06 and world-class ZR1, it also spawned a new generation Grand Sport that's every bit as functional as it is handsome. But even with countless special editions and Chevrolet's varying degrees of composite-bodied performance insanity, Corvette owners are pretty much used to the fact that someone else will show up at the same meet with virtually the same car. Hey, it's not a bad thing Corvettes are so popular; but then again, part of the appeal of having a special car is the guarantee of it actually being special. Enter this fully warrantied, virtually new 2010 Corvette Grand Sport. It takes all the track-ready goodness of Chevrolet's number one curve carver and throws in $22K worth of aesthetic tweaks to create one unique show stopper. And given the car has taken home both Best of Show and Best Custom Corvette honors, we'd say mission accomplished. If you're looking to pick up a modern, hassle-free hot rod that's still got all the right stuff to stand out from the crowd, we have your car!

But wait, there's more. Not content with having a Corvette that's rare but easily duplicated, this Grand Sport's owner decided to let Purifoy add $16,679 worth of visual sizzle to an already sizable $2,980 in carefully planned aftermarket mods. The result was an actual 'out-the-door' price of $79,666!
With only 8,312 miles on its clear digital odometer, this razor-sharp C6 coupe is a well-maintained garage queen that's assembly line perfect in virtually every way. Its bright GM code 70 Torch Red paint, which is topped by custom painted silver and gray stripes, perfectly accentuates its lightweight body. And that body's composite panels display precise fit and excellent finish under ancillary hardware that functions well and seals great. By the looks of this Corvette's slick finish, I'm fairly certain it has never seen daily driver duty. It's very unlikely the car's glossy, wet-look hue has ever felt anything more aggressive than a soft detailing cloth. And when that level of ownership is combined with Chevrolet's top notch build quality, it creates one seriously capable sports car that'll show with the finest classics and absolutely blister the road!
Visually, the sixth generation Corvette is one of the cleanest and most balanced shapes ever introduced. This tweaked Grand Sport builds on that theme with excellent proportions and many upgrades to create an absolutely killer street presence! At the front of the car's composite body, a Z06 fascia centers a chrome Chevrolet cross flag emblem between mesh-style air intakes, HID headlights and a subtle air splitter. At the top of the car's body factory glass, which is trimmed in Torch Red A-pillars and accented by metal Corvette Jake B-pillar decals, props a factory targa roof above a Quantum decklid spoiler. At the sides of the car's body factory issue fenders, which are complete with chrome-topped Grand Sport gills and Z06 air splitters, frame Katech rocker panels and body-matched mirrors. And at the back of the car, traditional round tail lights center a second Chevrolet cross flag emblem above a natural looking “CORVETTE by Purifoy” script, a Torch Red Quantum air splitter and four spotless stainless exhaust tips. This red hot Chevy isn't some generic Corvette that's had a few whimsical parts bolted on; it was built from day one to be an OEM-quality stunner which mixes the best attributes of Chevrolet performance with unbeatable aesthetic appeal.
Like the base Corvette Chevrolet's Grand Sport is powered by a proven 6.2-liter LS3 which, at 430 horsepower and 424 lb./ft. of torque, is certainly no slouch in the performance department. Widely considered one of the world's greatest V8 powerplants, GM's generation IV small block utilizes cast aluminum construction, high flow heads, a high flow intake, an aggressive camshaft and an upgraded electronic fuel injection system to provide hours of thrills and miles of impressive fuel economy. Naturally, since this coupe is still under warranty, everything pertaining to the way its handsome mill functions is just as the factory intended. But, as with the exterior of the car, there are many show-worthy upgrades to help gather crowds and attract trophies. GM's dull black fuel rail covers have been custom painted with slick Grand Sport graphics. The engine's smooth intake components have been bathed in a silky coat of silver. There's a plethora of body-matched accessory covers. And a bold Corvette Jake hood mural serves as a fitting Jolly Roger when the car's bonnet hits full tilt. As you would expect, this show stopper's engine is tidy and clean. It fires up instantly and runs perfectly thanks to the wonders of modern technology. And the sound of the LS3 growling through Corsa's tailor-made exhaust system will send chills right down your spine. Trust me, with this engine's sonorous note and neck-snapping acceleration, you'll want to bury the throttle every chance you get!
For the most part Corvettes have always been great track cars, and this slick 2010 coupe benefits from both years of engineering prowess and a few tricks learned by Chevrolet's own C5R Le Mans race team. The car's wide fiberglass fenders cover a four wheel independent suspension that's been lowered 1.5 inches and fitted with speed sensitive power steering, Active Handling traction control and power four wheel disc brakes which wrap Z06 hardware in mandatory anti-lock software. At the center of the floor a TR6060 6-speed transaxle, which is hooked to a factory limited slip differential and stout 3.42 gears, makes quick work of the hot small block's big torque. At the sides of that stellar drivetrain, a Corsa cat-back exhaust veils free-breathing power in a symphony of octane. And at the corners of that rowdy exhaust system, a sweet set of Competition Gray Grand Sport wheels twist brand new 275/35ZR18 front and 325/30ZR19 rear Nitto Invos around Ball End racing studs and traditional cross-flag center caps. All this state-of-the-art equipment enables exceptional cornering capability and effortless 0-60 sprints. And since this pristine coupe has likely never seen inclement weather, you can rest assured all its under car components are just as the factory left them.
Despite constant flak from limp-wristed consumer guides, the Corvette's interior is a competent and comfortable place to spend a day at the race track. And when it's equipped with upgrades like the ones found in this vibrant Grand Sport, it becomes a stylish place to spend a day at the track OR a night on the town. This coupe's plush driving environment kicks off with a pair of 6-way power adjustable buckets that have been wrapped in custom gray and silver leather. In front of those seats, a leather-wrapped and silver-stitched steering wheel spins redundant radio controls around a textured C6 Corvette cross-flag logo and a tilt-telescoping steering column. Behind that wheel, a conservative dash hangs a bright Corvette-branded instrument panel between GM's famous Head Up Display and a standard equipment driver information center. Inside that dash, the car's center stack anchors premium stitching and a weave trim panel around dual-zone climate control, a Bose premium sound system and factory Bluetooth connectivity. At the sides of the car, custom tri-tone door panels hang controls for the car's power windows, power door locks and outside memory mirrors above large Bose speakers. Between the seats, a custom-stitched console frames a custom cue ball shift knob. Behind the passengers, a surprisingly spacious cargo hold features both a luggage shade and a cargo net. And naturally, all the amenities and convenience features you've come to expect in a modern ride are present throughout including front and side impact air bags, keyless entry with push button ignition and universal home remote.
The sale of this awesome Grand Sport includes a copy of its original window sticker, an original owner's manual, paperwork for the car's seven year transferrable warranty and brochures for both its OnStar system and XM satellite radio system.
