The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is the track-focused sports car for the common person, and Chevrolet announced on Friday just how much that person will have to pay in order to get it: $66,445, at the car’s cheapest.

That $66,445 figure will be the lowest for the coupe version of the car, and the convertible will start at $70,445. The naturally aspirated Grand Sport has 460 horsepower and comes with either a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, and those who purchase the car can now add the Z07 Performance Package to the car.

The ability for buyers to add the Z07 Performance Package is a first for the Grand Sport, and doing so would give the car carbon-ceramic brakes, Michelin Sport Cup 2 summer tires, and a carbon-fiber aero package.

In the Corvette lineup, the car slots in between the top-of-the-line Z06 and the baseline Stingray, but the gap in horsepower between the Grand Sport and the Z06 is fairly high—compared to the Grand Sport’s 460 horsepower, a starting price of $79,400 for the 2016 model-year Z06 will get you a full 650 horsepower.

In addition to all of the optional packages for the car, CarScoops reports that Chevrolet will also sell a limited number of Grand Sport Collector Edition cars later on in 2017. The collector car will include the blue interior accents seen above, as well as Tension Blue hash-mark graphics, black wheels and a 3D marking on the headrests that depicts the original Grand Sport racer.

The Grand Sport will go on sale in the coming months, according to CarScoops. And for a few grand less than the Z06, a track day with a new Corvette is just within reach.

Wish it had the LS7. That engine deserves to live, and is better suited to track use than the LT4 in the Z06. Oh well.
