Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.R, the American star for the track

A Corvette even more extreme? There is not only the Z06. Now, Chevrolet also provides the GT3.R, but there is a small limit. The car is not homologated for the road and can only be used on the track by teams, professional drivers or even (for the first time in the history of the brand) by amateurs.

Despite being less powerful than the road Z06, this Z06 GT3.R still represents the pinnacle of performance aboard a Corvette.

Born for the track

The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.R is a “fusion” of the Z06 and the C8.R competition. The model, in fact, uses the aluminum frame and the aerodynamics of the latter, but under the hood there is the same 5.5 V8 of the first. However, to comply with the FIA ‚Äč‚Äčregulations of the GT3 category, this Corvette has power included between 500 and 600 hp, as opposed to the 680 hp of the original engine.

In any case, with a body so exasperatedly racing and with a probable weight reduction, we think that this GT3.R knows how to thrill and guarantee exhilarating performance. In the Z06 presented a few weeks ago, the naturally aspirated V8 reaches 8,600 rpm and allows 0-100 km / h acceleration of about 2.6 seconds.

The future of the Corvette

In the next few years we expect many more news regarding the Corvette. After the Z06 arriving in 2022, in 2023 it will be the turn of the Grand Sport (o E-Ray) with an electrified 6.2 V8 engine with a front electric unit to develop all-wheel drive and 600-650 hp, while in 2024 there could be the debut of the ZR1 with a 5.5 biturbo of over 850 hp.

Finally, 2025 may be the time for the first Corvette to feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain based on the ZR1 and a power exceeding 1,000 hp.
