Chevrolet Corvette GT3 To Be Built By Callaway
Chevrolet has authorized Callaway to build the GT3 version of the C7 Corvette
for FIA competition.
So far, Callaway isn’t giving projected specifications of the Corvette GT3, so we’re going to have to wait a while to fully grasp how much of a monster this American racecar will be.
In the meantime, we have these two rendered images of Callaway’s Corvette GT3. We see a lot of work on the body, and plenty of aerodynamic enhancements. The front splitter, rear diffuser and giant wing will help with stability, while venting around the wheels will aid in brake cooling and air flow. Looking at the side-exit exhausts, we can’t wait to hear what the GT3 will sound like in action.
