Chevrolet prices 2010 Grand Sport and builds the 1.5 Millionth Corvette

Today General Motors announced the production of the 1,500,000th Corvette at its Bowling Green Assembly plant. Now that’s an amazing milestone.

To kill two birds with one stone, at the same meeting, Chevrolet announced pricing on the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport with the standard coupe GS starting at $55,720 and the GS convertible from $59,530.

“The Corvette Grand Sport achieves a 0 – 60 time in less than four seconds, pulls 1.0g on the skid pad and still boasts an impressive 26 highway mpg,” Chevrolet product marketing director Karen Rafferty said. “These numbers are unmatched by any of Corvette’s competitors.” The 2010 Grand Sport was unofficially priced just over a week ago, but the official announcement today confirms those numbers.

Looking back on the nearly 60 years of Corvette production that got them to the Grand Sport, Z06 and ZR-1, Rafferty remarked, “The 1.5 millionth Corvette is a great example of how Chevy is America’s Brand. For nearly 60 years we have built America’s Sports Car and this milestone is a solid proof point.”

Obviously, GM will be leveraging its most iconic products to help rebuild the company’s image in the wake of its massive bailout and bankruptcy. The new Grand Sport sport is a step in the right direction, however, adding performance and value to an already impressive American sports car. Source: Motorauthority
