It seems our friend Jon Sibal was wondering the exact same thing. The designer recently took the time to whip up a rendering of an American Le Mans Series-prepared version of the new sportscar, and the creation looks as sinister on our screens as it did in our imaginations. With its exposed carbon fiber, matte black graphics, yellow lighting and center lug wheels, this rendering looks appropriately sinister.
    I wonder how Porsche, BMW, Viper, and Ferrari are going to respond to this latest and greatest Corvette. Probably just lobby to put more independent restrictions on the Corvette. Well, minus the Viper, the Viper will probably be just as restricted as the Vette.

    They should do a back view rendering and send it to all the other race teams in their class.

    This rendition is much more like a GT3 version, and probably very close to reality. The C7R Corvette Racing GT2 version would have far more aggressive rear wing, slots, strakes, and intakes. I can,t wait
