2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport - Click above for high-res image gallery

Since Chevrolet announced the return of the Corvette Grand Sport for 2010, we've been given detailed information on what the trim level will include as well as its starting price - $55,720 for the coupe and $59,530 for the convertible. What we haven't been given is a truly good look at the Grand Sport, having to make due with a single profile shot.

Chevy has just released six new images of the GS in both coupe and convertible form that finally show off the exterior changes. Most obvious are the new gills that sit behind the front wheels and vent air from the larger brakes. The Grand Sport also gets that air inlet on the leading edge of its hood from the Z06, as well as the air scoop behind each door and front splitter. Those front and rear fenders are also both wider than what you get on a base Corvette, all in order to accommodate wider tires fitted to Grand Sport-specific wheels. Though the engine remains the same, GS Vettes do get an upgraded suspension and your choice of a manually tranny or six-speed auto.

Replacing the Z51 package, the new Grand Sport really does seem like the perfect compromise between a garden variety Corvette and the harder edged Z06. Check out the rest of our Grand Sport photos in the gallery below.

I don't like that electric blue color on any car, but good pics nonetheless.

What a sexy little car. Love the blu. And those rims are very nice. I wonder if you can order one like the 90's Grand Sport, with the blu, white hashmark stripe, and red leather interior. :scratchchin:

I think I read in MT that the hashmarks will be optional. I assume they'll let you have any color interior you'd like.

I didn't realize this was replacing the Z51 package, I thought it was essentially a Z51 w/Z06 looks.
