A little bit later in the evening, Corvette Racing’s Tommy Milner started up the C8.R and revved its mystery engine. We laughed as the end as he was asked “what it redlined at” and he replied “I can’t tell you.”
There is a press backgrounder next Thursday at Petit Le Mans and details of the new C8.R will be made known then. Speculation has ranged from turbocharged to a flat-crank V8. Judge for yourselves what’s making that exhaust note sing and then stay tuned for next week!
We do know the two Corvette C8.Rs will officially make their racing debuts at the Rolex 24 at Daytona in January, so we’ll be looking for them at the Roar Before the 24 as well as any other testing sessions leading up to their first 24-hour test.
Watch as the mighty sound of the new C8.R’s mystery engine knocked us back on our heals. Hopefully, it will be as fast as it is loud!
