It may look a little crude, but this computer-generated rendering is the first official image of a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray race car

Unfortunately, we’re unlikely to see it in actual competition until the 2015 motorsport season but before then it’s possible Chevrolet will have its own C7 R race car ready. Speaking of the C7 R, it’s also possible that Callaway’s new Corvette Stingray race car and the C7 R will share some lines. After all, lines for both will be dictated by the wind tunnel.
Callaway’s Corvette Stingray race car is being developed under GT3 regulations. In fact, the company is the representative for building and holding the homologation of the Corvette Stingray in GT3 competition, a role it also plays for the C6 Corvette.
Considering what the 2014 Corvette Stingray is capable of on the road, we can’t wait to see what this latest generation of the American sports car icon will do on the track.

Land Rover’s hit a home run with its latest Range Rover, the fourth generation of the go-anywhere luxury SUV.

The pair of Aston Martin Zagato Centennial specials
made their public debut last week, and we must say the cars look much better in the metal than they did when we first saw some renderings
