The Chevrolet Corvette C7.R is a grand tourer racing car built by Pratt & Miller and Chevrolet for competition in endurance racing. It is a replacement for the Corvette C6.R racing car, using the C7 generation Chevrolet Corvette as a base. The C7 road car was noted to incorporate development from the Corvette C6.R, thus those properties also carry over to the race car. The Corvette Racing C7.R raced in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class.
The Chevrolet Corvette C7.R was added in the American Season Update as a high-end Class D car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1,440 ( 1)
- rank: 1,637
- rank: 1,868 ( 22)
- rank: 2,122 ( 30)
- rank: 2,433 ( 35)
- rank: 2,948 ( ?)
Similar to the Mazda Furai, the C7.R has decent top speed and acceleration, but mediocre other stats. Despite being the only epic-rarity car in Class D, it is not a class king as the TVR Griffith and Mazda Furai can both beat it on most tracks, even when it is at 5*. Blueprints for the C7.R are also very expensive, making fully upgrading the car require thousands of tokens.
The C7.R requires a key to be unlocked, the key can be obtained from its Grand Prix event.
