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.

There was a brief period of time after the bailout and before the recall crisis where GM was filled with a spirit of "we can do better" before the reality of just how bad they'd been had fully sunk in. This golden era product many treasured products, including the new Corvette, but n ...

Little Recalled Corvette: GM Stops Sale, Prepares Recall for 2015 Chevrolet Corvettes

Sep 12 2014 3:50pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The bad news? GM is about to issue two more recalls. The worse news? Both actions cover one of our favorite cars, the C7 Chevrolet Corvette. According to GM, a stop-sale notice has been sent to Chevrolet dealers who may have in stock some of the 2800 Corvettes potentially affected by two problems. The first problem afflicts approximately 2000 cars, which may have a driver’s side airbag that could come unseated when deployed in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. “In a ...

GM to issue stop-sale, two recalls for 2015 Corvette Stingray

Sep 12 2014 8:50am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

GM is on the cusp of issuing two separate recalls for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. After a month without recalls, the two hiccups are centred over problems with the Corvette’s airbags and parking brake cables. According to a GM spokesman via Automotive News, roughly 2,800 cars are affected and “very few” customers have taken delivery of the cars. The airbag recall covers 2,000 cars, most of which are still at t ...

Chevrolet Corvette Zora ZR1

Sep 11 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

Well, well. It seems that when I predicted that the trademarking of the Zora name by GM would lead to a mid-engined Corvette, I wasn’t just full of hot air. Since I wrote my first piece and clamored on about the mid-engined future in the TopSpeed Podcast, both Motor Trend and Car and Driver have written pieces claiming this to be the truth. We already covered the piece by Motor Trend, but the details from Car and ...
