1985 Corvette - The Ultimate Guide

Gone forever was the Cross-Fire Injection System that had been introduced as part of the C4 only a year earlier (and had managed to survive for only a single production year on the C4 platform.)  Replacing this awkward and somewhat uninspired system was a new “Tuned Port Injection” fuel delivery system – a system that was essentially the German Bosch fuel-injection system which featured a revised intake manifold.  This new system provided an individual fuel injector for each engine cylinder, featured tuned runners and included a new mass air flow sensor, all of which would aid in the car’s improved performance.

One is a crazy looking concept and the other is a mid-engined race car. The '80s were an awesome time.

The first  of these cars was the 1985 Corvette Indy Concept vehicle.  It was developed as a “pushmobile,” meaning that it was a non-functioning, full-size clay mockup that was developed to test market interest in the concept.  The car featured the same mid-engine configuration that Zora Arkus-Duntov had always envisioned for the Corvette program. 
A Corvette in name only, the Corvette GTP (Grand Touring Prototype) was one of the fastest and most exotic race cars ever to wear a red Bowtie. Based on an English Lola T600 chassis and powered by an all-American turbocharged Chevy V6, the mid-engined racer was a rocketship. At full boost, the Corvette GTP's 3.4-liter (209ci) V6 pumped out more than 1,000 horsepower.
