Chevrolet has introduced its first mid-engine GTLM race car, the Corvette C8.R, at the Kennedy Space Center. The C8.R will make its racing debut at Rolex 24 at Daytona in January 2020.
“The C8.R is much more than just a race-tuned version of the 2020 Corvette Stingray. It’s a culmination of many years of testing and development between GM Design, Propulsion, Engineering and the Corvette Racing team,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet US vice president of performance and motorsports.
The C8.R No. 4 car has been given a silver livery, inspired by the color of Corvette concepts such as the 1973 Chevrolet Aerovette and the 1959 Corvette Stingray Racer. The new mid-engined racer also features yellow accents.
