Super exciting to see the new Z06, this looks like a slam dunk track day fun toy. If it lives up to the reveal, I'll buy one.

Really…… the guy is annoying however the car
Never crossed my mind at all as a ricer
lines are too busy,too many add on doodads,the rear wing looks tacky,the side air intake brows,etc....just not a clean pure design compared to a 720,488 or 911 for instance.
doesn't take away from the probable capabilities of the car however and the engine tech seems as potent as anything else out there.

umm disagree
911 is the most boring looking car of all time. Nothing flattering about the design. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Z06 a beauty

Corvette Z06 GT3.R Will Be Sold to the Racing Public!

COPO Camaros are awesome if you're into drag racing, but what if your tastes lean more in the direction of road course racing? Well, you're in luck! Corvette Racing and Chevrolet just announced they will be building and selling turnkey Corvette Z06 GT3.R race cars to privateer racing customers just in time for the 2024 racing season! This is a first for Chevrolet and shows the company's commitment to racers with a package perfect for a wide variety of GT3 championships.
The new Corvette Z06 GT3.R will be the closest link yet between the production Z06 and the racing version for Chevrolet's flagship performance vehicle. The Corvette Z06 GT3.R will share the same aluminum chassis, a production LT6 engine modified for use in the race car, and have similar aerodynamic, silhouette, and dimension features as the mid-engine Corvette Z06 supercar. The Z06 GT3.R is a 5.5-liter, DOHC LT6 V8 engine with the same flat-plane crankshaft architecture that powers the Corvette C8.R. A real-world rolling laboratory, the C8.R laid the groundwork for powertrain and aero strategies that will make the Corvette Z06 GT3.R a worthy competitor in the world of privateer racing. Yep, a factory-built Corvette race car!
“It's an exciting time for Corvette—first with the reveal of the production Z06 and now confirming the Corvette Z06 GT3.R for customer racers," said Mark Stielow, Chevrolet Director of Motorsports Competition Engineering. "The availability of the Z06 GT3.R will allow customer race teams the opportunity to campaign a Corvette that has benefited from Corvette Racing's rich history."
The Corvette Z06 GT3.R fits the criteria for GT3 sports car racing, which continues to grow exponentially year over year. Corvette Racing closes its 2021 season with the 10-hour Petit Le Mans on Saturday, November 13.
Additional details such as pricing and support package options will be confirmed at a later date. More information is available at Chevrolet Motorsports.

Z06 vs Stingray
rear= Different? Slightly. Better? Maybe. Still not great. Don't see much difference from regular stingray rear. Overall the car will be a huge winner!
The main problem will be finding a car anywhere near MSRP
