Watch The 2024 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.R In Action

Based on the new C8 Corvette Z06, the Z06 GT3.R was developed to replace the C8.R in IMSA competition starting with the 2024 season and be available for purchase to racing teams.

Although it is based on the design of the 2023 Corvette Z06, and continues to feature a 5.5L engine like the production model variant, the GT3.R is not street legal. This Z06 has been equipped with racing-specific equipment and will comply with FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) regulations. it is designed to compete in multiple racing series and is expected to “drive circles around the competition.”

The 2024 Corvette Z06 GT3.R comes equipped with the aforementioned 5.5L engine in a mid-engine configuration, with horsepower figures tailored to specific engine configurations, with an estimated range of 500-600 horsepower. The car also comes with a 6-speed sequential motorsport transaxle. It will ride on motorsports-specific double-wishbone suspension specifically designed to extract performance from lower ride heights.

Watch it in action in this video from Belgian-Motorsport and enjoy the roaring sound of its 5.5-liter naturally aspirated flat-plane-crank V-8!
