Along with the limited-edition Corvette Victory Edition, Chevrolet will introduce a second special version this spring to the European market, the Corvette Competition. Resembling the successful C6.R race car, the number of options available on the new car are limited in order to save as much as weight as possible.
The Chevrolet Corvette Competition also shares air scoops with honeycomb pattern in the front grill and in between the double twin exhaust pipes at the rear. The car also borrows a rear spoiler from the Z06 model. Looks of the black Corvette Competition are enhanced by 5-spoke alloys (18 inch at the front, 19 inch at the rear) in Competition Gray.
Power comes from a 6.2L V8 engine producing 402 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque with a choice of a 6-speed manual gearbox or automatic transmission. Deliveries of the Corvette Competition start in April 2008 but you can head down to the dealerships to order it today.

In addition to the limited-edition Corvette Victory Edition, a second special version of the all-American sports car will be introduced this spring, the Corvette Competition. This model, built in limited numbers on the basis of the C6 CoupÃ©, bears strong links to motor sport too, in which the Corvette has proven highly successful. The Corvette Competition will be offered at a competitive price.
The new Corvette Competition is launched to celebrate the start of a new racing season. The 56th edition of the legendary Sebring Twelve Hours on 15 March was the first race in the American Le Mans Series championship (ALMS). In Sebring Corvette Racing scored another double victory in the GT1 category. The special Competition version of ALMS-champion Corvette bears subtle resemblances to the successful C6.R race car. The number of available options on the new car is limited, in order to save as much weight as possible. Another point in common are the air scoops with honeycomb pattern in the front grill and in between the double twin exhaust pipes at the rear. The rear spoiler, borrowed from the Z06 model, not only contributes to excellent aerodynamic properties but is evidence to the Corvette’s fine motor sport heritage as well. The bold looks of the Corvette Competition are complemented by 5-spoke alloys (18 inch at the front, 19 inch at the rear) in the colour Competition Grey. Another distinguishing feature of this limited-edition Corvette is its body colour: black.
The Corvette Competition boasts a 6.2 V8 engine and choice of a 6-speed manual gearbox or automatic transmission. Delivery of the new Corvette model starts in April 2008, and the car can be ordered from authorized Corvette dealers as of now.
