This 1800 HP Chevrolet Corvette C7 Will Give You The Creeps

This 1800 HP Chevrolet Corvette C7 Will Give You The Creeps

This sinister-looking C7 Corvette Z06 features sequential gears, gigantic turbo, and spits flames like an active volcano

When it comes to modified cars, the main goal seems to be high horsepower. However, having a well-sorted car means building it to send that power to the ground, as efficiently as possible. With this in mind, That Racing Channel (TRC) is giving us a YouTube video of one such car – a sinister-looking C7 Corvette, which may be one of the most well-sorted high-horsepower builds, you will ever see.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.R Race Car

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.R Race Car

Chevrolet is replacing the C8.R race car with a new Z06 GT3.R and will make it available to the public from 2024

Most of the speculations prior to the launch of the C8 Corvette Z06 were based on the C8.R race car, especially about the 5.5-liter V-8. The leaks sure helped, but it the C8.R race car was used as a benchmark. Now, the automaker has decided to replace the C8.R with the Corvette Z06 GT3.R. What makes this even special is that you will be able to purchase it. We’ve seen automakers like Porsche and BMW do this, but not Chevy.

These 10 Fast ‘Fuel-Powered’ Pickup Trucks Shouldn’t Be Forgotten When Electric Trucks Take Over

Here are 10 fast non-electric pickup trucks that we’ve seen over the years

We talk about how the upcoming electric pickup trucks are fast and heavy on performance. Trucks like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the GMC Hummer EV, etc. are all quicker than some of the famous supercars of this era. Although internal combustion-engined trucks aren’t known to be ‘fast’, there are a handful of them that could are quite agile. Doug DeMuro decided to list 10 such cool fast trucks, and we agree with every entry on this list.

Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan Steps Down - Are Big Changes Coming?

Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan Steps Down - Are Big Changes Coming?

Fehan has led Corvette Racing for 25 years achieving huge success

Doug Fehan, the long-standing Program Manager that has masterminded all of Corvette Racing’s successes ever since the factory-backed team made its debut all the way back in 1999, has parted ways with GM fresh off the heels of one of Corvette Racing’s best seasons to date.

The news came shortly after Oshkosh made it official that it had purchased Pratt & Miller, the company responsible for the building of all of Corvette Racing’s cars. Do these developments suggest that the writing is on the wall for the oldest American racing program that’s still active or will we see Corvette Racing change its focus in the not too distant future? Read on to find out more about the latest puzzle that sports car racing has thrown at us in recent days.

The Only Chevrolet Corvette C4 To Race At Le Mans Can Be Yours

The Only Chevrolet Corvette C4 To Race At Le Mans Can Be Yours

This Corvette racer pre-dated the factory-backed machines by five years

The Chevrolet Corvette has always been a popular sight at Le Mans but none raced in the world’s most famous endurance race for almost 20 years. Reeves Callaway’s team brought America’s Sportscar back to Circuit de la Sarthe but it is this, a red C4 ZR1 built by Doug Rippie Motorsport that remains as probably the biggest Corvette oddball in Le Mans history as it was supposed to take on the likes of Ferrari, McLaren, Venturi, and Porsche in the GT1 class of 1995 but never amounted to anything. Nonetheless, the car, freshly restored in its Le Mans war paint can be yours for the price of a brand-new Ferrari 812 GTS with some optional extras.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R

2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R

The latest evolution of the race-going breed

Corvette Racing, the oldest continuous program in top-level sports car racing of the modern era, unveiled its next chapter back in October when GM unexpectedly took the wraps off the C8.R, the GTE-spec race car based on the eighth-generation Corvette. It comes with a menacing body kit, a huge wing hanging over the back, and a flat-plane crank, 500 horsepower, 5.5-liter V-8 in the middle. A pair will race in the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship and at Le Mans next year, so keep your eyes and ears peeled.

It was back in 1999 at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona that a factory-backed racing Corvette first took to the track in an official practice session for a race. After decades of racing in privateer hands, barring some semi-factory-backed efforts that were ultimately canned due to GM’s ban on motorsport-related activities, the Corvette finally competed with backing from Detroit. 21 years later, Corvette Racing is still taking on the world’s best on America’s road courses and beyond and its latest weapon is unarguably the craziest yet.

Does the 2020 Chevy C8.R Have What It Takes to Win Championships?

Does the 2020 Chevy C8.R Have What It Takes to Win Championships?

Chevrolet’ first mid-engine Corvette race car is ready to throw down

The Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car has arrived, and it is a doozy. The Corvette racer is all set to make its debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona on January 25, 2020. But before it lays the smackdown on the race track, the Corvette C8.R takes its turn under the spotlight where it’s properly getting the attention it deserves. The Corvette C8.R isn’t just a race car; it also happens to be Chevrolet’s first-ever mid-engine race car to compete in IMSA’s GTLM class. It’s also Chevrolet’s first clean sheet race car design racer since the C5.R debuted in 1999. Through all these firsts, the Corvette C8.R racer takes its place as Chevrolet’s next warhorse, succeeding a race car — the Corvette CR.7 — that won 16 races in its time, including the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans. Can the C8.R replicate that kind of success? Only time will tell. For now, let’s enjoy the fact that the C8.R is here, and it’s ready to stake its claim as the next great Corvette racer.

The Corvette C8.R Isn't The First Mid-Engined Racer With That Logo On The Hood

The Corvette C8.R Isn’t The First Mid-Engined Racer With That Logo On The Hood

Two other Corvette-branded race cars graced U.S. circuits years before the latest Corvette Racing machine

We were all pleased when, right after unveiling in front of the world the first Corvette to feature a hardtop at the Kennedy Space Center, Chevy also showed us the C8.R, Corvette Racing’s new weapon for GTE competitions from 2020 onwards. The race car had previously been teased during the launch event of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 Coupe and we were aware that Chevy planned to take the wraps off both the C8 Convertible and the C8.R during the same event but many still were surprised by the appearance of the silver winged warrior. What could also surprise you is that this isn’t the first mid-engined race car that raced under the Corvette banner.

The moment we laid eyes on the Corvette C8, we immediately started picturing it with a big diffuser in the back, a large splitter in the front, big rims hugged by wide, slick racing rubber, and a carbon-fiber wing hanging from the back. We’d seen glimpses of the C8.R testing at Sebring Raceway in Florida back in December of last year but, at the time, GM was tight-lipped on the subject and it took many months before the American automaker finally confirmed the C7.R will become the swansong of the successful line of front-engined GT racing cars as the C8.R will make the transition to the rear-mid-engine layout on the circuits as well.

The C7.R needs a replacement, and it’s coming in 2020

With the new 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette coming to dealerships, it’s safe to assume that GM will release a race-spec model soon. Chevy has yet to confirm that a C8.R model is underway, but we have quite a few reasons to believe that the race car is almost ready to debut.

Here's the Chevy Corvette C8.R Testing at Sebring

Here’s the Chevy Corvette C8.R Testing at Sebring

The new mid-engine race car is put through its paces on the tough Floridian track

We’ve been talking endlessly about the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette C8 and, also, the race-going C8.R. Fans of old are lamenting about how it’s not really a Corvette if the engine isn’t in front of the driver, but this might not be the only problem the old guard will have with the new car. As we can hear in this new video captured at Sebring Raceway, the C8.R tries to sound like a Ferrari 488 GTE which suggests the push-rod V-8 might be a thing of the past, at least on the race car.

Chevy’s been busy testing the C8, that will be the first production mid-engine Corvette ever made, for over a year. At the same time, the guys at Pratt & Miller are racking up the test miles of the C8.R mules that should taste competition for the first time at the 2020 Daytona 24 Hours race.
