2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car unveiled

The Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car has been unveiled alongside the Stingray convertible. Designed for the GT Le Mans racing series, the C8.R follows the mid-engine format of the road-going Corvette range. While the race car bears a very close visual resemblance to the street-legal coupe, practically every exterior panel looks to be unique. The front and rear wheel arches are wider, and there are new wing mirrors, latches for the bonnet and rear engine cover, and plenty of exposed screws.
