Chevrolet unveiled the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport today at the Geneva Motor Show—and this mid-range mutation of the Stingray and the Z06 is sure to appease loyal 'Vette aficionados.

Grand Sport snatches the Stingray's 460 hp naturally-aspirated 6.2 liter V-8 engine and melds it with features swiped from the more ferocious 650 hp Z06, including high-performance Brembo brakes, rear fenders, the grille and magnetic ride control suspension.

It rolls on sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer tires, while the Grand Sport's optional Z07 upgrade amps things up with carbon ceramic brakes and Pilot Sport 2 Cup tires.

The Grand Sport will offer a choice of seven-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions, as well as coupe and convertible versions that will be available this summer.

Pricing has not been announced yet, but the Grand Sport is expected to clock in somewhere between the starting prices of the $56,395 Stingray and the $80,395 Z06. 

Start counting those pennies now.
