Marshall Pruett did the world a solid by getting some sweet audio of the C8.R at Daytona during testing. Have a listen over at Road And Track, and be sure to crank the volume on the first sound clip.

Take the first in-car audio ride with the brand-new Corvette C8.R, courtesy of Corvette Racing.

With the mid-engine sports car being readied for its debut in IMSA's WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the team placed our audio recorder directly between the 5.5-liter V-8 engine's exhaust pipes. With the trio of Antonio Garcia, Jordan Taylor, and Nicky Catsburg flying around the high banks of Daytona International Speedway during testing, the unique pitch created by its flat-plane crankshaft creates a clear sound separation from its front-engine predecessor, the title-winning C7.R.
