Default powerfull race corvettes

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.

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.

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.
