2017 Grand Sport Corvette #001 Auctions Off at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, for ONLY $170,000

AMAZING! The fully loaded, first C7 Grand Sport Corvette goes for only $170,000!

Dateline – 4-8.16: This is arguably the collectible Corvette buy of the decade.

Here are the details:

Lot #3003 – The winning bidder will receive the first retail production 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Collector Edition VIN #001.


The latest member of the Corvette lineup, the 2017 Grand Sport carries on the racing spirit of the original 1963 model, combining the power of the legendary LT1 6.2-liter engine with a lightweight, race-bred chassis and aerodynamics package to provide incredible grip and handling. The 2017 Grand Sport’s V8 engine is capable of 460hp and 465 ft/lbs of torque.

The compact design lowers the hoodline, providing optimal weight balance. A dry-sump oil system delivers oil flow through the most extreme cornering, helping Grand Sport deliver a consistently high level of performance.

This Grand Sport Collector Edition is a limited-production edition and features a Watkins Glen Gray Metallic exterior with Tension Blue hash-mark graphics, satin black full-length stripes, black wheels and an exclusive Tension Blue full leather and suede-wrapped interior. The Tension Blue color is a bold, modern take on the hue historically associated with the Grand Sport.

Inside, a three-dimensional representation of an original Grand Sport race car is embossed in the headrests, and that shape is also used on an instrument panel plaque that carries a unique build-sequence number.

100 percent of the winning bid will benefit the Karmanos Cancer Institute. The Karmanos Cancer Institute is a unique, integrated center of research, patient care and education, dedicated to the prevention, early detection, treatment and eventual eradication of cancer.

Thanks for watching!Scott
