Everything You Want to Know About the 2012 Corvette, All in One Place.
Since the introduction of the Corvette in 1953, and especially since Zora Arkus Duntov breathed life into the earliest Corvette race cars, the Corvette production models – including the Grand Sport, the Z06, and most-especially the ZR1 – have always shared a special connection to their racetrack counterparts.
The lineage of Corvette racers is almost as old as the car itself, and for generations, the “All American Sports Car” has proven itself to be a top contender on the world racing state.
The 2012 model year would continue that tradition. Chevrolet unveiled several new racing variants of the beloved Corvette, including both a newer GT contender as well as a Daytona Prototype class Corvette. These cars, developed in conjunction with their production model counterparts, would further demonstrate the fusion between the engineers designing these cars and the people operating them – both on the road and the racetrack.
