BusinessWeek Review of 2010 Corvette Grand Sport

Bloomberg BusinessWeek recently had the opportunity to drive the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport:

My Rule No. 1 when it comes to car reviewing: Any excuse to drive a Corvette.

Following that rule put me behind the wheel of a 2010 Corvette Grand Sport just as the first days of spring arrived in hilly northeast Pennsylvania. I wasn't disappointed. Most of the time I was totally exhilarated.

The Grand Sport, a new version of the iconic two-seater Chevy sports car, splits the difference between the regular Corvette and the powerful, much more expensive Z06. Basically, the GS replaces the Z51 performance package that used to be an option on the base-model Corvette.

Either way, it includes a number of Z06-style upgrades, among them bigger brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, wider front and rear fenders, and a front splitter and tall rear spoiler, as well as fender stripes and vents and unique alloy wheels. These aren't all cosmetic enhancements. Many of them improve the car's aerodynamics and handling so that it hugs the road even more tenaciously than a regular Corvette.
