Official word is finally out that the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R will make its public debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month. The Corvette C7.R will be unveiled alongside the Corvette Z06 and the upcoming R model will make its racing debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona which takes place in January.
Chevrolet has so far refrained from divulging many details about the upcoming car but has said that the model was co-developed with the Corvette Z06 and hence, has the “closest connection between the racing and road-going Corvettes in modern times.“
According to Jim Campbell, GM’s U.S. Vice President of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports, “We had an amazing year in 2013, winning more championships in professional motorsport than any other manufacturer. Our success was the direct result of considerable preparation, strategy, teamwork and great drive from our teams, drivers, and partners in open wheel, stock car, and sports car racing. We are looking forward to continuing that momentum for 2014.”
