Il team Kunos Simulazioni ci mostra oggi i primi renders di anteprima della nuova Chevrolet Corvette C7R, una delle vetture con licenza ufficiale della casa americana di prossimo arrivo sul simulatore Assetto Corsa.
Chevrolet kicked off the 2014 season with the debut of the all-new Corvette C7.R at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The new Corvette race car, wearing an updated “Jake” mascot, has made its competition debut at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, Jan. 25-26, 2014. C7.R is the racing version of its new C7 Corvette Stingray . The news falls with the unveiling of the new Corvette Z06 , the car the C7.R shares many design and performance attributes with. The two beasts were co-developed to take full advantage of the engineering expertise and technology both versions of the Vette use to succeed. The C7.R features the same fuel-saving/power-making direct injection technology as the production C7 Z06, though used on a 5.5-liter V-8 instead of the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 - all mounted to a highly-ridged aluminum frame. Vents, scoops, extractors, wings, and underbody panels all act together in reducing drag and creating down force. This car has been officially licensed for ASSETTO CORSA racing videogame: we are glad to share the first work-in-progress pictures related to the current state of development.
