Did anyone know that there was once a corvette gtp? it was the grand touring proto type. it raced around the late 80's. It wasen't much of a corvette except for the name and styling it was a turbo 6 cylinder motor pushing over 1000 horsepower. Won numerous road racing events and well i would love to get my hands on one of these.

Some awesome rubber on some crappy wheels till I order my ccw's.

What it looks like is the Jag of the era that raced the enduro races. There are several examples of the Jag left - occasionally a guy that owns two will bring them to Daytona 24 and show them in the infield.

Interesting, was the motor lighter than an equivalent V8?

Many years ago when I was young and pumping Sunoco 260 a local kid pulled in in his 68 L88 roadster. What a sound. I pumped 260 into it. His father owned a construction company so his kid got what he wanted. The Vette ended up at the local Chevy dealership for sale. Like the tin man said. If I only had a brain. It was a genuine L88 for sale and I pumped 260 in it. Before that he had a 67 427 coupe.

She's been in for 1 year in restoration
She's Eagle Hu-002 serial number, as beautiful a GTP car as you'll ever see.
