Discovering the Chevrolet Corvette Cabrio Grand Sport
When you book a Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Grand Sport as a luxury car rental, you'll find out what it feels like to be behind the wheel of an American icon. At first glance, there is a European flavor to this light and nimble two-seater convertible, with just enough room in the trunk for an overnight trip or a weekend getaway. But you only have to cast your eye over the flared wheel arches, side air ducts and low, crouched stance to know that this latest Chevy still holds true its muscle car heritage.
The history of the Corvette goes back to the 1950s, the era of Technicolor and rock 'n' roll. The formula was simple: a two-seater rear wheel drive car powered by a V8 engine and wrapped in jet-age looks. Now in its seventh generation, the model continues to be a sure-fire recipe for success. While it boasts the same 6.2-liter V8 engine, the Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Grand Sport is slightly more powerful and has bigger wheels than the entry level Stingray. Its performance might not quite match the top of the range Z06, but it certainly holds its own against most other luxury cars out there.
From a standing start, the Grand Sport can reach 62 mph in 4.7 seconds. And as you slide through the six-speed automatic gearbox and unlock some of the engine's 431 bhp, top speeds of 186 mph beckon. Meanwhile, cornering is a cinch thanks to the electronic differential sending just the right amount of power to the front wheels. And the Magnetic Ride Control system keeps everything precisely balanced.

A Sports Car with an All-American Pedigree
An American institution, Chevrolet has been around for more than a hundred years. Its very first car, the Classic Six, had a powerful six-cylinder engine with a top speed of 65 mph: it was a sign of things to come. Racing is important to the company, with Chevrolet vehicles involved in NASCAR, IndyCar and grand touring championships around the world. At the end of the 1990s, an adapted Corvette C5 dominated at Daytona. This feat was surpassed by the C6, a three-time winner of the Le Mans 24 Hour class. The Chevy Corvette Convertible Grand Sport has some mighty competitors such as the Jaguar XK and Porsche 911, but its iconic status puts it in a class of its own.
