GM announcing Corvette C7.R for NAIAS image

The North American based automotive giant, General Motors, has recently announced its plans to introduce the Corvette C7.R next month, during the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit.

General Motors will be officially presenting to the public the so-called Corvette C7.R in January 2014, during the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit, as the carmaker has officially announced. The model in question will be celebrating its racing debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, in January, and it will sit alongside the Corvette Z06.

“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”, said Jim Campbell, the VP of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports within GM.

The new Corvette C7.R has been co-developed with the Corvette Z06 and it represents a “connection between racing and road-going Corvettes” in modern times, as the carmaker says. Sadly GM declined to go into details on the new Corvette C7.R so we should probably wait for the 2014 NAIAS in order to find out more about it or even for the Rolex 24, next month.
