In a truly patriotic display, which is only appropriate for America’s sports car, this replica ’63 ‘Vette Grand Sport wears a white and blue paint job with red accents. The interior is all black and has a very clean, professional presentation. Simple white-faced analog gauges are easy to reference at a glance. High bolsters on the seats keep the driver and passenger comfortable while also preventing them from sliding around as the car powers through turns on a track. Five-point harnesses for both seats are included, completing the motorsports-inspired design.
Nestled under the hood is an LS1 350 V8, which produced a stout 400 horsepower when installed. It works with a ZF6 6-speed manual transmission, allowing the driver to row through the gears and feel fully engaged. Power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, heat, and air conditioning make this a fun and completely livable hobby car that also has the added value of being patterned after a motorsports legend.
A mere 5 Chevrolet Corvette C2 Grand Sports were ever produced, making the cars hot collector items. This replica has been patterned after the original with exceptional quality and details. Built in 2007 by professionals, this ride has only had one owner. It will definitely draw stares and plenty of admirers everywhere you look, making for a fun and unique investment.
