Corvette Grand Sport Admiral Blue Heritage Edition Limited To 5
This Corvette Grand Sport Admiral Blue Heritage Edition Is For The Japan Only
It’s striking blue, based on the Corvette Grand Sport, with fantastic red accents and it’s only for Japan. Can you believe it!? This beauty, only for Japan and limited to 5 examples. Sad, isn’t it.
Don’t be sad though. If you ask politely, any GM dealership can spec out the Corvette Grand Sport for you more or less the same as this one you see here.
Here’s the kicker.
The car features an iconic shade of Grand Sport blue. Fantastic color matches perfectly with the carbon fiber aero elements, black wheels, red stripes and other. It simply works. Even with a massive white stripe on the hood. And then, there’s even a red stripe on the black wheels. Ok, it may seem that the Japanese Corvette is a bit all over the place with so many different color options thrown in the game, but it really is fantastic.
GM Japan has thrown in some neat hardware as well. Carbon fiber dominates the interior as well as Alcantara and leather. Sure, Corvette was caught up in the luxurious game as some of its oversea counterparts, but the latest car does know a thing or two about refinement. Honestly, with all these upscale materials, the inside feels almost amazing.
Corvette Grand Sport Admiral Blue Heritage Edition Makes Use Of A Well Known Drivetrain
As we all know by now, the Corvette Grand Sport sits right in between the entry Stingray and the Z06. Making use of a 6.2-liter V8 with 460hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, the car comes paired with a seven-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic. In the US, the Grand Sport can achieve some meaty numbers – like accelerate to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds or cover a quarter of a mile in 11.8 seconds at 118 mph. Not shabby for sure.
As you may know, all import cars are quite pricey in Japan. Especially those with a V8 with 460hp. Same goes for our Heritage ‘Vette here. It is priced at ¥12,800,000 yen ($115,000). This makes it $6,300 more expensive than standard Grand Sport. Considering Corvette Grand Sport starts at $66,445 in the U.S. we are more than lucky.
