VIDEO: Ultra-Light, 505 WHP AVI Racing Corvette GT1
Dedicated track cars are all the rage. But instead of having an Atom made of ladders or a rare KTM that has expensive carbon fiber and requires Audi parts($$)? Why not buy one that has a reliable motor, 505WHP, and parts you can get anywhere?
That’s why AVI Racing built this Corvette-based prototype. It has a tube chassis, which is wider than a stock C6, and it’s a lot lighter, but the engine(LS3), transmission, drive-shaft, and tons of other parts are available at a GM dealer. So even if you’re in the middle of nowhere, like we were at INDE Motorsport Ranch, and you break something, you can probably find it at a local parts store or nearby Chevy dealer. When you consider it’s faster around a track than the World Challenge Car that AVI also owns, it’s quite a bargain. A really fun bargain that totally blew our ears out. Make the jump for the video.
