Each of the four versions has a specific exterior color and unique graphics package inspired by Corvette Racing drivers Tommy Milner, Oliver Gavin, Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia


 

“The Corvette Drivers Series celebrates Corvette Racing’s winning legacy, which is driven by a world-class team of drivers from around the globe,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “Each driver worked with Chevrolet designers on the graphics for their respective edition, giving the cars distinctly personalized appearances.”

Offered on Grand Sport 1LT, 2LT and 3LT trims, the color and graphics packages for the vehicles include:

Similar to the Corvette Racing C7.R race cars, the Grand Sport-based Drivers Series models feature a naturally aspirated V-8 engine. The 6.2L LT1 engine is rated at 460 horsepower (343 kW), and also like the race cars features a dry-sump oiling system designed to support high-performance track driving.

Spring Hill Engine Plant

SPRING HILL, Tenn. — General Motors is investing $22 million at its Spring Hill, Tennessee, manufacturing complex to enable the engine plant to build 6.2L V-8 engines with GM’s advanced Dynamic Fuel Management technology. With today’s announcement, GM has invested more than $2 billion in the Tennessee complex since 2010.

“This investment will enable our Spring Hill team to continue building our award-winning engines enhanced with technology that will improve fuel efficiency and performance for our customers,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra during a visit to the plant to meet with employees and community leaders to celebrate the new Cadillac XT6. “This investment reflects our commitment to vehicles and technologies our customers desire today and in the future.”

For several years, General Motors has been transforming its business to win in the core automotive business and the future of personal mobility. The new investment is a testament to the company’s commitment to optimize its core business to meet strong customer demand.

GM’s Dynamic Fuel Management technology is the industry’s first cylinder deactivation technology, which enables the engines to operate in 17 different cylinder patterns to optimize performance. DFM enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power a customer wants.

In addition to the new investment, GM is completing a previously announced $300 million investment at the complex for production of the all-new Cadillac XT6. Spring Hill will be adding more than 200 jobs for the all-new, three-row Cadillac crossover.

GM’s Spring Hill Manufacturing complex consists of a flexible vehicle assembly plant and an engine plant. On the vehicle side, the plant produces the GMC Acadia, Holden Acadia and Cadillac XT5. In addition, Cadillac just unveiled the all-new Cadillac XT6 and the plant will begin building the vehicle later this year. The engine plant builds four- and eight-cylinder engines.

The Spring Hill complex opened in 1990 and currently employs about 3,800 people.

GM has a strong presence in Tennessee with more than 4,000 employees working in the state. In addition to the Spring Hill complex, GM has a parts distribution center in Memphis. Tennessee is home to more than 200 suppliers and GM spends more than $700 million annually with those suppliers. GM currently has 78 independently owned dealerships across the state that employ about 4,800 people. Nearly 11,000 GM retirees currently call Tennessee home.

Corvette C7.R to Race in WEC in Shanghai

  • Its first race in Asia will close Corvette Racing’s historic 20th season
  • Corvette C7.R race car features special Redline livery.

SHENZHEN, China — Chevrolet announced today that Corvette Racing will close its 20th season of competition in grand style by competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2018 race in Shanghai. The C7.R race car, which will wear a special Redline livery for the competition, will be the first factory-run Corvette to race in Asia.

The 6 Hours of Shanghai will take place November 16-18 at the 16-turn, 5.45-km Shanghai International Circuit. Built in 2004, the venue plays host to a number of motorsports’ top championships, including the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix.

“Corvette is a global icon that we are excited to be bringing to race in China — the second-largest market for Chevrolet,” said Scott Lawson, general director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM.

The WEC is one of the world's key sports car series and features racing at venues across the world with all races at least six hours in duration. The Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race is the WEC's most famous stop and will take place twice in the 2018-2019 calendar. The race tests not only speed and driving skills, but also the stability and fuel economy of cars in extreme driving.

“Corvette Racing has proven itself as a world-class racing program,” said Mark Kent, Chevrolet director of Motorsports Competition. “Competing in the Shanghai race provides us an additional opportunity to test ourselves against the top manufacturers and teams in the FIA WEC.”

Corvette Racing team highlights:

  • Winner of 107 races around the world.
  • 12 manufacturer championships in International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) competition.
  • 11 driver’s championships in IMSA competition.
  • 11-time class champion of the Sebring 12-hour endurance race.
  • Eight victories in the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race.
  • Three-time class champion of the Daytona 24-hour endurance race.
  • Captured wins in Daytona, Sebring and Le Mans endurance races in 2015.

Racing has been part of Chevrolet’s DNA since the brand was established by race car driver Louis Chevrolet more than a century ago. This performance-inspired DNA continues to influence the entire Chevrolet lineup today.

Redline

The Corvette C7.R will wear a special Redline livery for the race in Shanghai to promote the launch of the special edition in China across Chevrolet’s portfolio.

Redline made its global debut in concept form at the 2015 SEMA Show. Inspired by a strong positive response, it became the broadest cross-portfolio special edition ever offered by Chevrolet.

Last year, Chevrolet introduced its Redline special edition portfolio for China at Auto Guangzhou 2017 and announced that four Redline models will enter the domestic market in 2018. In the future, nearly all Chevrolet models in China will have Redline variants.

“Chevrolet is strengthening its brand in China by boosting our product lineup and our overall customer and ownership experience. We have begun rolling out our more youthful and sporty Redline edition to help us reach younger customers,” said Lawson.

“The Corvette Drivers Series celebrates Corvette Racing’s winning legacy, which is driven by a world-class team of drivers from around the globe,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “Each driver worked with Chevrolet designers on the graphics for their respective edition, giving the cars distinctly personalized appearances.”

Spring Hill Engine Plant

SPRING HILL, Tenn. — General Motors is investing $22 million at its Spring Hill, Tennessee, manufacturing complex to enable the engine plant to build 6.2L V-8 engines with GM’s advanced Dynamic Fuel Management technology. With today’s announcement, GM has invested more than $2 billion in the Tennessee complex since 2010.

“This investment will enable our Spring Hill team to continue building our award-winning engines enhanced with technology that will improve fuel efficiency and performance for our customers,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra during a visit to the plant to meet with employees and community leaders to celebrate the new Cadillac XT6. “This investment reflects our commitment to vehicles and technologies our customers desire today and in the future.”

For several years, General Motors has been transforming its business to win in the core automotive business and the future of personal mobility. The new investment is a testament to the company’s commitment to optimize its core business to meet strong customer demand.

GM’s Dynamic Fuel Management technology is the industry’s first cylinder deactivation technology, which enables the engines to operate in 17 different cylinder patterns to optimize performance. DFM enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power a customer wants.

In addition to the new investment, GM is completing a previously announced $300 million investment at the complex for production of the all-new Cadillac XT6. Spring Hill will be adding more than 200 jobs for the all-new, three-row Cadillac crossover.

GM’s Spring Hill Manufacturing complex consists of a flexible vehicle assembly plant and an engine plant. On the vehicle side, the plant produces the GMC Acadia, Holden Acadia and Cadillac XT5. In addition, Cadillac just unveiled the all-new Cadillac XT6 and the plant will begin building the vehicle later this year. The engine plant builds four- and eight-cylinder engines.

The Spring Hill complex opened in 1990 and currently employs about 3,800 people.

GM has a strong presence in Tennessee with more than 4,000 employees working in the state. In addition to the Spring Hill complex, GM has a parts distribution center in Memphis. Tennessee is home to more than 200 suppliers and GM spends more than $700 million annually with those suppliers. GM currently has 78 independently owned dealerships across the state that employ about 4,800 people. Nearly 11,000 GM retirees currently call Tennessee home.

Corvette C7.R to Race in WEC in Shanghai

  • Its first race in Asia will close Corvette Racing’s historic 20th season
  • Corvette C7.R race car features special Redline livery.

SHENZHEN, China — Chevrolet announced today that Corvette Racing will close its 20th season of competition in grand style by competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2018 race in Shanghai. The C7.R race car, which will wear a special Redline livery for the competition, will be the first factory-run Corvette to race in Asia.

The 6 Hours of Shanghai will take place November 16-18 at the 16-turn, 5.45-km Shanghai International Circuit. Built in 2004, the venue plays host to a number of motorsports’ top championships, including the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix.

“Corvette is a global icon that we are excited to be bringing to race in China — the second-largest market for Chevrolet,” said Scott Lawson, general director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM.

The WEC is one of the world's key sports car series and features racing at venues across the world with all races at least six hours in duration. The Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race is the WEC's most famous stop and will take place twice in the 2018-2019 calendar. The race tests not only speed and driving skills, but also the stability and fuel economy of cars in extreme driving.

“Corvette Racing has proven itself as a world-class racing program,” said Mark Kent, Chevrolet director of Motorsports Competition. “Competing in the Shanghai race provides us an additional opportunity to test ourselves against the top manufacturers and teams in the FIA WEC.”

Corvette Racing team highlights:

  • Winner of 107 races around the world.
  • 12 manufacturer championships in International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) competition.
  • 11 driver’s championships in IMSA competition.
  • 11-time class champion of the Sebring 12-hour endurance race.
  • Eight victories in the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race.
  • Three-time class champion of the Daytona 24-hour endurance race.
  • Captured wins in Daytona, Sebring and Le Mans endurance races in 2015.

Racing has been part of Chevrolet’s DNA since the brand was established by race car driver Louis Chevrolet more than a century ago. This performance-inspired DNA continues to influence the entire Chevrolet lineup today.

Redline

The Corvette C7.R will wear a special Redline livery for the race in Shanghai to promote the launch of the special edition in China across Chevrolet’s portfolio.

Redline made its global debut in concept form at the 2015 SEMA Show. Inspired by a strong positive response, it became the broadest cross-portfolio special edition ever offered by Chevrolet.

Last year, Chevrolet introduced its Redline special edition portfolio for China at Auto Guangzhou 2017 and announced that four Redline models will enter the domestic market in 2018. In the future, nearly all Chevrolet models in China will have Redline variants.

“Chevrolet is strengthening its brand in China by boosting our product lineup and our overall customer and ownership experience. We have begun rolling out our more youthful and sporty Redline edition to help us reach younger customers,” said Lawson.

“The Corvette Drivers Series celebrates Corvette Racing’s winning legacy, which is driven by a world-class team of drivers from around the globe,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “Each driver worked with Chevrolet designers on the graphics for their respective edition, giving the cars distinctly personalized appearances.”

Spring Hill Engine Plant

SPRING HILL, Tenn. — General Motors is investing $22 million at its Spring Hill, Tennessee, manufacturing complex to enable the engine plant to build 6.2L V-8 engines with GM’s advanced Dynamic Fuel Management technology. With today’s announcement, GM has invested more than $2 billion in the Tennessee complex since 2010.

“This investment will enable our Spring Hill team to continue building our award-winning engines enhanced with technology that will improve fuel efficiency and performance for our customers,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra during a visit to the plant to meet with employees and community leaders to celebrate the new Cadillac XT6. “This investment reflects our commitment to vehicles and technologies our customers desire today and in the future.”

For several years, General Motors has been transforming its business to win in the core automotive business and the future of personal mobility. The new investment is a testament to the company’s commitment to optimize its core business to meet strong customer demand.

GM’s Dynamic Fuel Management technology is the industry’s first cylinder deactivation technology, which enables the engines to operate in 17 different cylinder patterns to optimize performance. DFM enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power a customer wants.

In addition to the new investment, GM is completing a previously announced $300 million investment at the complex for production of the all-new Cadillac XT6. Spring Hill will be adding more than 200 jobs for the all-new, three-row Cadillac crossover.

GM’s Spring Hill Manufacturing complex consists of a flexible vehicle assembly plant and an engine plant. On the vehicle side, the plant produces the GMC Acadia, Holden Acadia and Cadillac XT5. In addition, Cadillac just unveiled the all-new Cadillac XT6 and the plant will begin building the vehicle later this year. The engine plant builds four- and eight-cylinder engines.

The Spring Hill complex opened in 1990 and currently employs about 3,800 people.

GM has a strong presence in Tennessee with more than 4,000 employees working in the state. In addition to the Spring Hill complex, GM has a parts distribution center in Memphis. Tennessee is home to more than 200 suppliers and GM spends more than $700 million annually with those suppliers. GM currently has 78 independently owned dealerships across the state that employ about 4,800 people. Nearly 11,000 GM retirees currently call Tennessee home.

Corvette C7.R to Race in WEC in Shanghai

  • Its first race in Asia will close Corvette Racing’s historic 20th season
  • Corvette C7.R race car features special Redline livery.

SHENZHEN, China — Chevrolet announced today that Corvette Racing will close its 20th season of competition in grand style by competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2018 race in Shanghai. The C7.R race car, which will wear a special Redline livery for the competition, will be the first factory-run Corvette to race in Asia.

The 6 Hours of Shanghai will take place November 16-18 at the 16-turn, 5.45-km Shanghai International Circuit. Built in 2004, the venue plays host to a number of motorsports’ top championships, including the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix.

“Corvette is a global icon that we are excited to be bringing to race in China — the second-largest market for Chevrolet,” said Scott Lawson, general director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM.

The WEC is one of the world's key sports car series and features racing at venues across the world with all races at least six hours in duration. The Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race is the WEC's most famous stop and will take place twice in the 2018-2019 calendar. The race tests not only speed and driving skills, but also the stability and fuel economy of cars in extreme driving.

“Corvette Racing has proven itself as a world-class racing program,” said Mark Kent, Chevrolet director of Motorsports Competition. “Competing in the Shanghai race provides us an additional opportunity to test ourselves against the top manufacturers and teams in the FIA WEC.”

Corvette Racing team highlights:

  • Winner of 107 races around the world.
  • 12 manufacturer championships in International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) competition.
  • 11 driver’s championships in IMSA competition.
  • 11-time class champion of the Sebring 12-hour endurance race.
  • Eight victories in the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race.
  • Three-time class champion of the Daytona 24-hour endurance race.
  • Captured wins in Daytona, Sebring and Le Mans endurance races in 2015.

Racing has been part of Chevrolet’s DNA since the brand was established by race car driver Louis Chevrolet more than a century ago. This performance-inspired DNA continues to influence the entire Chevrolet lineup today.

Redline

The Corvette C7.R will wear a special Redline livery for the race in Shanghai to promote the launch of the special edition in China across Chevrolet’s portfolio.

Redline made its global debut in concept form at the 2015 SEMA Show. Inspired by a strong positive response, it became the broadest cross-portfolio special edition ever offered by Chevrolet.

Last year, Chevrolet introduced its Redline special edition portfolio for China at Auto Guangzhou 2017 and announced that four Redline models will enter the domestic market in 2018. In the future, nearly all Chevrolet models in China will have Redline variants.

“Chevrolet is strengthening its brand in China by boosting our product lineup and our overall customer and ownership experience. We have begun rolling out our more youthful and sporty Redline edition to help us reach younger customers,” said Lawson.

Each of the four versions has a specific exterior color and unique graphics package inspired by Corvette Racing drivers Tommy Milner, Oliver Gavin, Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia


 

“The Corvette Drivers Series celebrates Corvette Racing’s winning legacy, which is driven by a world-class team of drivers from around the globe,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “Each driver worked with Chevrolet designers on the graphics for their respective edition, giving the cars distinctly personalized appearances.”

Spring Hill Engine Plant

SPRING HILL, Tenn. — General Motors is investing $22 million at its Spring Hill, Tennessee, manufacturing complex to enable the engine plant to build 6.2L V-8 engines with GM’s advanced Dynamic Fuel Management technology. With today’s announcement, GM has invested more than $2 billion in the Tennessee complex since 2010.

“This investment will enable our Spring Hill team to continue building our award-winning engines enhanced with technology that will improve fuel efficiency and performance for our customers,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra during a visit to the plant to meet with employees and community leaders to celebrate the new Cadillac XT6. “This investment reflects our commitment to vehicles and technologies our customers desire today and in the future.”

For several years, General Motors has been transforming its business to win in the core automotive business and the future of personal mobility. The new investment is a testament to the company’s commitment to optimize its core business to meet strong customer demand.

GM’s Dynamic Fuel Management technology is the industry’s first cylinder deactivation technology, which enables the engines to operate in 17 different cylinder patterns to optimize performance. DFM enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power a customer wants.

In addition to the new investment, GM is completing a previously announced $300 million investment at the complex for production of the all-new Cadillac XT6. Spring Hill will be adding more than 200 jobs for the all-new, three-row Cadillac crossover.

GM’s Spring Hill Manufacturing complex consists of a flexible vehicle assembly plant and an engine plant. On the vehicle side, the plant produces the GMC Acadia, Holden Acadia and Cadillac XT5. In addition, Cadillac just unveiled the all-new Cadillac XT6 and the plant will begin building the vehicle later this year. The engine plant builds four- and eight-cylinder engines.

The Spring Hill complex opened in 1990 and currently employs about 3,800 people.

GM has a strong presence in Tennessee with more than 4,000 employees working in the state. In addition to the Spring Hill complex, GM has a parts distribution center in Memphis. Tennessee is home to more than 200 suppliers and GM spends more than $700 million annually with those suppliers. GM currently has 78 independently owned dealerships across the state that employ about 4,800 people. Nearly 11,000 GM retirees currently call Tennessee home.

Corvette C7.R to Race in WEC in Shanghai

  • Its first race in Asia will close Corvette Racing’s historic 20th season
  • Corvette C7.R race car features special Redline livery.

SHENZHEN, China — Chevrolet announced today that Corvette Racing will close its 20th season of competition in grand style by competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2018 race in Shanghai. The C7.R race car, which will wear a special Redline livery for the competition, will be the first factory-run Corvette to race in Asia.

The 6 Hours of Shanghai will take place November 16-18 at the 16-turn, 5.45-km Shanghai International Circuit. Built in 2004, the venue plays host to a number of motorsports’ top championships, including the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix.

“Corvette is a global icon that we are excited to be bringing to race in China — the second-largest market for Chevrolet,” said Scott Lawson, general director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM.

The WEC is one of the world's key sports car series and features racing at venues across the world with all races at least six hours in duration. The Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race is the WEC's most famous stop and will take place twice in the 2018-2019 calendar. The race tests not only speed and driving skills, but also the stability and fuel economy of cars in extreme driving.

“Corvette Racing has proven itself as a world-class racing program,” said Mark Kent, Chevrolet director of Motorsports Competition. “Competing in the Shanghai race provides us an additional opportunity to test ourselves against the top manufacturers and teams in the FIA WEC.”

Corvette Racing team highlights:

  • Winner of 107 races around the world.
  • 12 manufacturer championships in International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) competition.
  • 11 driver’s championships in IMSA competition.
  • 11-time class champion of the Sebring 12-hour endurance race.
  • Eight victories in the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race.
  • Three-time class champion of the Daytona 24-hour endurance race.
  • Captured wins in Daytona, Sebring and Le Mans endurance races in 2015.

Racing has been part of Chevrolet’s DNA since the brand was established by race car driver Louis Chevrolet more than a century ago. This performance-inspired DNA continues to influence the entire Chevrolet lineup today.

Redline

The Corvette C7.R will wear a special Redline livery for the race in Shanghai to promote the launch of the special edition in China across Chevrolet’s portfolio.

Redline made its global debut in concept form at the 2015 SEMA Show. Inspired by a strong positive response, it became the broadest cross-portfolio special edition ever offered by Chevrolet.

Last year, Chevrolet introduced its Redline special edition portfolio for China at Auto Guangzhou 2017 and announced that four Redline models will enter the domestic market in 2018. In the future, nearly all Chevrolet models in China will have Redline variants.

“Chevrolet is strengthening its brand in China by boosting our product lineup and our overall customer and ownership experience. We have begun rolling out our more youthful and sporty Redline edition to help us reach younger customers,” said Lawson.

Spring Hill Engine Plant

SPRING HILL, Tenn. — General Motors is investing $22 million at its Spring Hill, Tennessee, manufacturing complex to enable the engine plant to build 6.2L V-8 engines with GM’s advanced Dynamic Fuel Management technology. With today’s announcement, GM has invested more than $2 billion in the Tennessee complex since 2010.

“This investment will enable our Spring Hill team to continue building our award-winning engines enhanced with technology that will improve fuel efficiency and performance for our customers,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra during a visit to the plant to meet with employees and community leaders to celebrate the new Cadillac XT6. “This investment reflects our commitment to vehicles and technologies our customers desire today and in the future.”

For several years, General Motors has been transforming its business to win in the core automotive business and the future of personal mobility. The new investment is a testament to the company’s commitment to optimize its core business to meet strong customer demand.

GM’s Dynamic Fuel Management technology is the industry’s first cylinder deactivation technology, which enables the engines to operate in 17 different cylinder patterns to optimize performance. DFM enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power a customer wants.

In addition to the new investment, GM is completing a previously announced $300 million investment at the complex for production of the all-new Cadillac XT6. Spring Hill will be adding more than 200 jobs for the all-new, three-row Cadillac crossover.

GM’s Spring Hill Manufacturing complex consists of a flexible vehicle assembly plant and an engine plant. On the vehicle side, the plant produces the GMC Acadia, Holden Acadia and Cadillac XT5. In addition, Cadillac just unveiled the all-new Cadillac XT6 and the plant will begin building the vehicle later this year. The engine plant builds four- and eight-cylinder engines.

The Spring Hill complex opened in 1990 and currently employs about 3,800 people.

GM has a strong presence in Tennessee with more than 4,000 employees working in the state. In addition to the Spring Hill complex, GM has a parts distribution center in Memphis. Tennessee is home to more than 200 suppliers and GM spends more than $700 million annually with those suppliers. GM currently has 78 independently owned dealerships across the state that employ about 4,800 people. Nearly 11,000 GM retirees currently call Tennessee home.

Corvette C7.R to Race in WEC in Shanghai

  • Its first race in Asia will close Corvette Racing’s historic 20th season
  • Corvette C7.R race car features special Redline livery.

SHENZHEN, China — Chevrolet announced today that Corvette Racing will close its 20th season of competition in grand style by competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2018 race in Shanghai. The C7.R race car, which will wear a special Redline livery for the competition, will be the first factory-run Corvette to race in Asia.

The 6 Hours of Shanghai will take place November 16-18 at the 16-turn, 5.45-km Shanghai International Circuit. Built in 2004, the venue plays host to a number of motorsports’ top championships, including the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix.

“Corvette is a global icon that we are excited to be bringing to race in China — the second-largest market for Chevrolet,” said Scott Lawson, general director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM.

The WEC is one of the world's key sports car series and features racing at venues across the world with all races at least six hours in duration. The Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race is the WEC's most famous stop and will take place twice in the 2018-2019 calendar. The race tests not only speed and driving skills, but also the stability and fuel economy of cars in extreme driving.

“Corvette Racing has proven itself as a world-class racing program,” said Mark Kent, Chevrolet director of Motorsports Competition. “Competing in the Shanghai race provides us an additional opportunity to test ourselves against the top manufacturers and teams in the FIA WEC.”

Corvette Racing team highlights:

  • Winner of 107 races around the world.
  • 12 manufacturer championships in International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) competition.
  • 11 driver’s championships in IMSA competition.
  • 11-time class champion of the Sebring 12-hour endurance race.
  • Eight victories in the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race.
  • Three-time class champion of the Daytona 24-hour endurance race.
  • Captured wins in Daytona, Sebring and Le Mans endurance races in 2015.

Racing has been part of Chevrolet’s DNA since the brand was established by race car driver Louis Chevrolet more than a century ago. This performance-inspired DNA continues to influence the entire Chevrolet lineup today.

Redline

The Corvette C7.R will wear a special Redline livery for the race in Shanghai to promote the launch of the special edition in China across Chevrolet’s portfolio.

Redline made its global debut in concept form at the 2015 SEMA Show. Inspired by a strong positive response, it became the broadest cross-portfolio special edition ever offered by Chevrolet.

Last year, Chevrolet introduced its Redline special edition portfolio for China at Auto Guangzhou 2017 and announced that four Redline models will enter the domestic market in 2018. In the future, nearly all Chevrolet models in China will have Redline variants.

“Chevrolet is strengthening its brand in China by boosting our product lineup and our overall customer and ownership experience. We have begun rolling out our more youthful and sporty Redline edition to help us reach younger customers,” said Lawson.

“Customers can select the version of their favorite Corvette Racing driver or simply choose the one with the color and graphics that appeals the most to them,” said Majoros. “And like the drivers they represent, each special edition is a winner.”  

Similar to the Corvette Racing C7.R race cars, the Grand Sport-based Drivers Series models feature a naturally aspirated V-8 engine. The 6.2L LT1 engine is rated at 460 horsepower (343 kW), and also like the race cars features a dry-sump oiling system designed to support high-performance track driving.
