The C4 Corvette Grand Sport is largely thought to be one of the most collectible modern Corvettes. With just 1,000 examples built in a short, one-year production run, the Grand Sport is a seldom-seen variant of the otherwise abundant fourth-generation Corvette.
Of those 1,000 cars that were built, 810 were hardtop coupes and just 190 were convertibles. One of these exceedingly rare C4 Corvette Grand Sport Convertibles recently popped up for sale on Russo and Steele’s website, giving Chevy fans the opportunity to put this highly sought after Vette in their garage or collection.
The car being sold by Russo and Steele is also one of just 41 C4 Corvette Grand Sport Convertibles that left the factory with the red interior option and the F45 heavy-duty suspension. It has been extremely well preserved, featuring all factory original stickers and decals, an immaculate “as new” interior and the original Goodyear Eagle GS-C tires. Furthermore, the car will be delivered with all factory manuals and original dealer marketing material. Russo and Steele assures any would-be buyers that all 22,000 miles on the odometer have been “carefully driven.”
The only available engine in the C4 Corvette Grand Sport was the 6.2L LT4 V8, which is good for 330 horsepower and 340 pound-feet of torque. The gearbox is a six-speed manual from German supplier ZF, which sends power to the rear wheels through a set of 3.45 gears.
Russo and Steele is asking for $54,500 for this rare, mint-condition Corvette Grand Sport. Considering its rarity and museum-quality condition, we’d say this is a fair price. We can’t imagine its value will ever dip below $54,000 and we’d be surprised if it didn’t go up in the coming years. Check out the listing here for some more information and high-quality images.
