chevrolet corvette c2 by atlantic racing picture

The Chevrolet Corvette C2 sports car raced its way into our hearts back in 1963 and continued to do so until its demise in 1967. Known as the Sting Ray, the C2 was an amazing piece of machinery for its output of 560 HP (for the C2 427 version) which was considered phenomenal during that time. Remember, in those days, Ferrari models couldn’t even come close to the 500 HP mark. Now, bringing that speedster back into our lives is Atlantic Racing, who were made famous by their Le Mans Classic cars.

Atlantic Racing took the L88 engine in the C2 427 and jumpstarted its horsepower from 560 to 650. Next to modifying the 7-liter V8 engine, the tuner also decreased the car’s weight down to 1240 kilos and added a Rochester T10 transmission with strengthened clutch.

The Corvette C2 427 by Atlantic Racing was developed specially for the track and has already won the 2007 European Championship GT1 for history models.

    You have a point harry_bright. And i haven’t seen any car manufacturer that uses the Sting ray concept. However, the engine for this car is quite impressive, for sure it will have a better speed performance.

    I can’t understand why they are still using the sting ray concept. I don’t think that they should be considering this anymore. It’s much better if Chevy will follow their standard face.

    Why are there no other cars willing to tangle with the ’Vette? Oh wait, I think I know why. Joking aside its sad to see no other competition in GT1 in the ALMS.

    The vehicle has been put on a diet and now tips the scales at 1,240 kg. We have to mention that this is a car aimed for circuit racing. We have to mention that the racer has won the 2007 European Championship - GT1 class for classic vehicles.

    impressive, an old vette having a 600 horses under the hood... but isn’t that kinda dangerous? because it need a better frame, Suspensions, sway bar and axel to deal with those tremendous power.

    now that was something new was it? I really want to see this oldies come face to face on track. I bet every driver will have a hard time beating each other.

    Love those times when a race was won by reliability of the car and mostly the talent of the driver. Now they have like 10 times more staf and a huge technology behind them
