Set to compete in next season’s newly formed United SportsCar Racing Series, the Corvette Racing C7.R livery have been revealed.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray race cars will be built by Pratt & Miller and are set to have their competition debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona in January 2014. Continuing its tradition of a black and yellow theme, the new C7.Rs will be more aggressive this time around, splitting the two-tone color scheme throughout the vehicles with a jagged design.
Contrasting themes are found on both cars, with the number-three car sporting the opposite of the number-four car. Confirmed specs on the C7.R racers haven’t been officially announced yet, but rumor has it that they will compete with the same 5.5-liter LS7 V8 engine currently found in the C6.R GT2 race cars.
**UPDATE: The photos seen above are actually just an artist’s interpretation of the C7.R, and are not genuine. When the real photos surface, we will be sure to have coverage. Stay tuned.
