3 HISTORY of Grand Sport 1963 Corvette purpose-built race car to win Sebring and Le Mans The envisioned Grand Sport would be the ultimate Corvette, a lightweight, powerful factory built racer. Only 5 were built out of the planned 125. 1996 The Corvette Design Team wanted to do a fitting 'close' for the long- running C4 body style. Only 1000 were built all Blue with White stripes and red hash marks. The 1996 version used the standard Corvette engine (LT4) with wider ZR1 size wheels, tires, and chassis components. The 2010 version will use the standard Corvette engine with wider Z06 size wheels, tires, brakes, and chassis.
