Set to compete in IMSA's GTLM class is the new Chevrolet Corvette C8.R, the company's first clean sheet race car design since the C5.R in 1999. During development of C8 generation Corvette, Chevrolet set out to integrate a deeper level of technology between race car and production car. This has resulted in the C8.R sharing the highest percentage of parts between the production and race car than any previous generation.
Due to IMSA engine displacement regulations, the C8.R will run a 5.5L V8 engine, which will be good for 500 PS (368 kW) of power and 480 lb-ft (651 Nm) of torque. Due to the mid engine layout, a new Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox has been designed to be even more compact to allow enough room for the rear diffuser to fit. Other focuses have been on reducing weight, adding stiffness and improving the aerodynamic profile. Chevrolet claims all these goals have been met, marking the new C8.R as a potential new threat on the IMSA circuit.
