These special edition Corvettes were designed to commemorate the mid-engine Corvette C8.R’s inaugural race season. In 2020, Corvette Racing swept IMSA’s sportscar championship series, taking the manufacturers, drivers and team titles.
“Racing has been part of the Corvette’s DNA from nearly the beginning,” said Laura Klauser, General Motors Sports Car Program manager. “Both the Corvette Stingray and C8.R have seen tremendous success capitalizing on the benefits of a mid-engine platform – and we’re just getting started.”
The 2022 Corvette Stingray IMSA GTLM Championship Edition comes with the 3LT trim and the Z51 Performance Package. Each car includes Corvette Racing-themed graphics packages. Accelerate Yellow No. 3 editions feature gray graphics and Hypersonic Gray No. 4 editions feature yellow accents.
Corvette Stingray’s LT2 6.2L V-8 engine enters 2022 with an upgraded direct injection fuel system, improved engine calibration and an enhanced Active Fuel Management range. It is rated at 490 horsepower or 495 horsepower, with the available performance exhaust system. Driving through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, a Z51-equipped sprints from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds.
