The C7.R Corvettes built by Pratt & Miller in conjunction with GM marks a decade's long partnership to build the best racing Corvettes possible. Although the C7.R may look like a C7 Corvette with an aero from the photos, a huge amount of the car is changed to go racing. For starters, the roofline is 3.0-inches lower and the body is widened by 8.0-inches. All of the exterior body panels are carbon fiber that was massaged by a wind tunnel for optimal aerodynamic performance.
Power comes from the battle-tested LS7 V8 engine that was debored to only 5.5-liters to meet racing regulations. This front-mounted engine is home to highly engineered internals, which means this engine still produces an impressive 574 horsepower (428 Kilowatts). The racing LS7 is mated to a 6-speed transaxle that has proven to be reliable during the turmoil of endurance racing.
