Grand Sport (C6)Edit
The Chevrolet Corvette C6 Grand Sport is the newest variant of the C4 edition of 1996. It is a basic Z06 fitted with a "Grand Sport" package which includes wider front and rear fenders, larger wheels and sport brakes. This model has yet to feature in Gran Turismo.
The C6.R is a full-racing variant of the C6, similar in nature to its predecessor, the Chevrolet Corvette C5-R. The 7.0L engine produces 590BHP, and powered several teams in the 2006-2009 Le Mans Series GT1 events. The C6.R was then downgraded to a 6.0L V8 producing 480 BHP, in order to qualify for the 2010 GT2 category of the Le Mans series. This model has yet to feature in Gran Turismo, though the racing modifications for both C6 Corvettes aesthetically resemble the C6.R with the yellow color scheme applied.
