The No. 4 C7.R Corvette Race Car at Sunset in Daytona Beach, Florida
The C7.R Corvette by Pratt & Miller is one of the winningest race cars in modern history. Explore what makes this Corvette a winner on race day, and discover the connection between the C7.R and the seventh-generation Chevy Corvette Z06. At the core of the C7.R Corvette is a direct carry-over from its predecessor - the same 5.5 liter engine that was developed during the C6.R's successful tenure in both the American Le Mans series and at The 24 Hours of Le Mans. 
For only the second time in Chevrolet history, a Corvette is now available in a Drivers Series special edition. Actually, there’s four, all Grand Sports designed in collaboration with Corvette Racing team drivers Milner, Gavin, Magnussen and Garcia. The idea came from Chevrolet exterior design manager Kirk Bennion, a racing fan who was also at the Rolex 24, according to Corvette Marketing Manager Todd Christensen. Four Drivers Series special editions is definitely more fun than one.
2019 Corvette ZR1 in Sebring, Orange
The Corvette ZR1 features an LT5 6.2L V-8 supercharged engine which dramatically advances the supercharging technologies first introduced in the 2009 sixth-generation Corvette ZR1 and continued with the 2015 seventh-generation Z06 Corvette. The engine, which is officially rated with an SAE-certified 755 horsepower (563 kW) and 715 lb-ft of torque (969Nm), establishes an entirely new benchmark in Chevrolet performance.
The Corvette skipped a year and returned to the Indy 500 in 2015. NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon drove the 'Vette for the first lap, and the car had a fairly simple body with the race decals on the doors and sponsor stickers at the front end. Gordon, who grew up in nearby Pittsboro, Indiana, is no stranger to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He won the first NASCAR race in the history of the famed 2.5-mile oval and has won four more times.

The 2018 Corvette Z06 is arguably one of the best Corvette platforms available on the market today.  While not as powerful as the 2019 Corvette ZR1, the Z06 platform propelled the seventh-generation Corvette from sports-car to super-car territory. The C7 Z06 platform was co-developed with the C7.R race car. It is no surprise then that the car, which handles much like its race car counterpart, should come from that same pedigree.
The Zagato company took a C7 Corvette Z06 and transformed it into the IsoRivolta GTZ, a "spiritual descendant" of the Iso Grifo A3/C (Corsa).  The original A3/C race car was developed by Giotto Bizzarrini not long after he left Ferrari, where he had served as cheif engineer behind the 250 GTO, which is revered as the world's most expensive car.  Bizzarrini purportedly fancied the A3/C as his "own personal evolution of (and improvement upon) the GTO design."
