Description

The Chevrolet Corvette C7.R is a grand tourer racing car built by Pratt & Miller Engineering and Fabrication and Chevrolet for competition in endurance racing. It is a replacement for the Corvette C6.R racing car, using the C7 generation Chevrolet Corvette as a base. The C7.R has a front-mounted longitudinally-placed Chevrolet LS5.R 5.5 L (336 cu in) V8 engine which is naturally aspirated and produces 491 hp (366 kW) @ 6,000 rpm. The engine runs on Ethanol racing fuel.

The die-cast version of the model was released in 2015, it features an up-sloped chin to optimize its performance in loops. Only for the 2016 Hot Wheels Entertainment version the base was modified to feature the real car's lower front overhang and splitter.

The yellow-and-black livery on the CFH01 version is the actual livery of the factory-sponsored C7.R cars which compete in the Grand Touring / Le Mans (GTLM) class of the IMSA WeatherTech Championship, and in the Grand Touring Pro class in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The #3 car is regularly driven by Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen, with Mike Rockenfeller joining the team for the longer endurance races.
