BREAKING NEWS: #GM will unveil two super fast #Corvette models in Detroit. #Z06 #C7R

The Fastest of All Corvettes Will Debut in Detroit Alongside the new Z06 - Torque News

The bad news is that we know less about the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette C7.R race car than we do about the Corvette Z06 that will also debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit’s Cobo Hall. Based on their success in past years, I would expect that racecar builders Pratt & Miller would be involved in the production of the newest factory-backed Corvette racers with a body that is very similar to the 2014 Corvette Stingray (or perhaps more like the upcoming Corvette Z06) but with the obvious racing-only enhancements such as a front fascia that almost touches the ground, huge wheel flares, an ultra low stance and a massive rear wing.

Exactly so, that we know little about the C7.R.

We have no idea how the IMSA sanctioning body treated the C7.R for the 2014 Tudor United SportsCar series, e.g., restrictor size, weight allowance, degree to which some of the car's panels must be the same as the Z06's, etc. However, knowing how candid Corvette's Race Manager Doug Feehan is, we will probably learn more from him about some of these factors, but maybe not until the Rolex 24 weekend event (Jan. 25-26th) at Daytona. That is, unless Doug Feehan is at Detroit Auto Show reveal.
