What's The Corvette Grand Sport Packing Under The Hood?

The Grand Sport was given a boost from the nice people at GM with an extra 30 horsepower over a basic model C4

bringing the pony total up to 330 horses. It was powered by a 5.7 L LT4 V8 like several other fourth-generation Corvettes. 

While it may come out as a little wimpy,

the C4 was a lightweight sports car with a huge engine, 

 weighing just a hair over 3,200 lbs. The 'Vette accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, which is comparatively quick

 Now that the Grand Sport was among the big dogs, everyone needed to contribute in order to have a stake in the outcome

 GM therefore went over and beyond the gleaming new patriotic paint job.
