Chevrolet Corvette C7.R to Debut at Detroit Auto Show

Chevy is up to something big for the detroit show, can't wait!

Quote:
As expected, Chevrolet Racing will be back in action for the 2014 season.

With an all-new C7 Corvette Stingray released last year, it comes as no surprise that a Corvette C7.R follows shortly behind it. Destined for the newly formed TUDOR United SportsCar Championship as well as Le Mans, the C7.R will be based on the Z06; also debuting in Detroit. Unlike most racecars in the TUDOR series, the C7.R shares a common structure with the production based Z06. The new racecarís structure is reportedly 40% stiffer than that of the C6.R.

Chevrolet wants the C7.R to be the most potent Corvette racer to date; a hard feat to accomplish considering the success of the C5-R and C6.R. Part of the strategy includes using direct injection on the C7.Rís V8 that will net a 3% fuel savings; enough to eliminate an entire pit stop during a 24 hour endurance race.

The C7.R will make its public debut in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show January 13th, 2014. The car will then make its competition debut at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, in Daytona Beach, Fla., on January 25, 2014. Of course, the new C7.R continues to use an updated version of the Jake logo; the unofficial mascot of the Corvette Racing team.

Just how powerful do you think it will be. What kind of horsepower are we talking about here.

Not just about power but refinement too.

It was my way of saying they need to produce a Chevy supercar.
Chevy needs to get on it. Kinda sad how hennessey performance beat them to it, but i'd still like to see what they can and will do.

It does, for $50k it can't be beat, even guys who bought the Chevy SS are kicking themselves for buying an SS when they could have paid a bit more and got a Vette
