Corvette-Powered Track Day Beast Starts at $149,000

Performance should be very impressive

A company called Innotech has unveiled a car built specifically to destroy race tracks called the Aspiron. The car will be unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in a few weeks and the car is designed specifically to appeal to track day enthusiasts. The vehicle will start at $149,000.

The car has a very angular nose that looks a lot like a Radical and features a large rear wing for downforce. The car has little interior and no roof featuring six-point harnesses and a digital instrument cluster. The car will be powered by various GM V-8 engines including a 6.2-liter LS9.

That LS9 engine can be tuned for 800 hp. The company will also offer a version powered by ethanol able to produce 1000 hp. All engines use a six speed manual transmission and a limited slip differential. The entry-level $149,000 version has 500 hp.

Aug 19 2014 3:35pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Despite its abundant use of lightweight materials throughout its structure and its aero-honed body, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will be the heaviest Corvette in history—and not by a little. Thanks to “a friend” of Corvetteblogger.com (who we’re not sure is a true “friend” of GM), the 2015 Corvette ordering guide is now public domain, including previously unknown product information about the Z06. From that document we’ve learned that the Corvette Z06 coupe will we ...

Even before we’d tried it, Chevrolet’s awesome audio/video/telemetry-recording Performance Data Recorder option for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette and Corvette Z06 had us smitten. Then we tested it out and became even more enamored. Now, Chevrolet has announced an enhanced Valet Mode functionality for PDR that should placate anyone who’s ever seen their blood pressure rise and had gray hairs sprout at the mere sight of a valet stand.
