History Repeats Itself . . . Again

That parsimonious streak will be much appreciated when it comes time to make the monthly payment. Optioned to the gunwales with chrome wheels, a nav system, the 4LT Premium Equipment Group, and much more, our tester carried a sticker price of $77,735-some $3,500 more than the starting price of a real-deal Z06. To be fair, the GS model only commands $5,000-6,000 over the price of a base Vette, and it shouldn't be difficult to order up a nicely equipped example for around $60,000. Fans of post-purchase performance tuning should also note that it would be nigh impossible to piece together a similarly potent Z06 look-alike for less using aftermarket hardware.

Does the '10 Grand Sport makes good on the promise implicit in its historic appellation? We're inclined to say so, especially if the car in question is a conservatively optioned manual coupe. While it may lack the low-volume cachet of its immediate predecessor, this latest GS is a vastly superior automobile in every other respect. And in the grand scheme of things, that's change we can all believe in.
