Vette Videos: 505-Horsepower LS7-Powered Duntov Motors Grand Sport

Dateline: 3.11.12

The Civilized Grand Sport Corvette Replica – Sort of…

Today you can go to your local Chevrolet dealer today and buy a Grand Sport Corvette to your liking.  Almost 50 years ago, there were only five Grand Sport Corvettes in existence and they were NOT for sale. “Unrealized potential,” “the ultimate could’a been Corvette” and many other expressions tell the original Grand Sport Corvette story. Unlike today’s C6 Grand Sports, the originals were all-out racing Corvettes, designed to give the Cobras a good run for it.

But GM had a completely different attitude about racing back then that can be nicely described as “backward.” Fortunately, all five original Grand Sports are still around. Along the way, there have been numerous companies that offered Grand Sport replicas – some, better than others. But today there is only one “officially licensed” by GM, Grand Sport replica, and that is the Duntov Motors Grand Sports.


As an enthusiast, it’s nice to see not only GM getting behind the Corvette’s racing heritage, but also to see a Grand Sport replica that is officially endorsed by GM. In 2009 Duntov Motors performed an interesting engine swap on one of their Grand Sport Roadsters. A brand new, ERod 505-horsepower LS7 GM Crate Engine was installed in a Duntov Motors GS Roadster with results that pleased everyone.

The video speaks for itself. Alan Sevadjian from Duntov Motors says about using the ERod LS7 engine. “… that’s the least expensive 505-horsepower engine that I know you can buy and put in a car.” The LS7 gets about double the fuel mileage, is emissions friendly and compliant, and is an engine you can live with every day.

So, the ERod LS7 and Duntov Motors Grand Sport Corvette… PERFECT together! Enjoy the video.  – Scott
