News video: 3 Reasons Why the New Corvette Grand Sport Is Not Like Your Daddy's Vette

Want to show up your babyboomer Corvette owning dad, young millennial males? Then roll up to his retirement home in General Motors' 2017 Corvette Grand Sport.

Once parked out front, make sure the intimidating-looking car is set in sport mode and stomp on the gas pedal a couple times, giving dear old dad a taste of the Grand Sport's 6.2 litre 460 horsepower V8 engine.

If the proud thunderous roar from the updated American icon -- which jets from 0-60 mph in 3.

6 seconds -- doesn't make him keel over in jealousy, then perhaps try pointing out several of the Grand Sport's special features.

There is a performance package option that adds big red Brembo brakes, extra wide and sticky Michelin tires and a carbon fiber spoiler.

Oh, and don't forget the carbon fiber ground effects that give the Grand Sport the youthful manliness dad's 1981 Corvette lacks.

Dad may feel a touch inferior when peeking at the Grand Sport's interior, too.

From Apple CarPlay in the dash to a convertible top that goes down in seconds to leather seats that may be some of those most comfortable in the Corvette's competitive class, the Grand Sport offers quite the thrilling ride.

Although dad will probably be happy that you are now finally a member of the Vette club, a part of him probably wishes a Grand Sport was parked next to his classic in the garage (he could have one for about a cool $85,000)..
