CORVETTE GRAND SPORT HISTORY

In 1962, with the blessing of Chevrolet’s top management, Zora Arkus-Duntov initiated a program to create a competitive road racer based on the newly designed Corvette C-2 Stingray. Duntov’s objective was to suddenly and surprisingly unleash on the international road racing community 125 very fast, high horsepower, great handling race cars, all based on a street capable production car footprint. Although the Grand Sport Cars eventually qualified as GT production cars under international racing rules, GM executives learned of Duntov’s plan to make these cars available to independent road racers that could race without the official GM endorsement, and officially stopped the program. Only five of these Corvettes had been completed and Duntov was ordered to destroy them. Miraculously, each of the prototypes escaped destruction orders, falling into the hands of private racers who preserved their heritage for future generations.

TODAY

The original Grand Sports are in private collections, and are extremely valuable and highly coveted - not because of what they accomplished, but because of what might have been. Now, you too, can share the Grand Sport experience. Superformance and Duntov Motor Company have painstakingly reproduced the chassis, body panels and accessories required to replicate this extraordinary car. You can own a Corvette Grand Sport by Superformance, a spectacular dream car that is being offered as a complete TKM (turn key minus) unit ready to accept your choice of GMPP engines and transmissions. They are as close to the original as is technically possible. Many may wish what might have been, but you have an opportunity to experience what actually is!

 

The Corvette Grand Sport originally raced with several different engines and Borg Warner T-10 4 speed Manual transmissions. In its racing debut early in 1963, the car sported a production 360 HP, 327 CID fuel injected motor and a “stock” appearance. The most serious factory engine was a 377 cubic inch displacement, all-aluminum smallblock with four Weber sidedraft carburetors, rated 550 hp (410 kW) at 6400 rpm. Superformance has built our chassis in such a way to allow the engines and transmissions of the past or to accomodate any of the newer LS-series or E-Rod series of engines and transmissions from GM Performance Parts.
