iRacing.com has announced an upcoming new addition to their online racing simulation: The Corvette C7 Daytona Prototype.

Developed in partnership with Chevrolet, Pratt & Miller, Coyote and Whelen Motorsports’ Action Express Racing Team, the Corvette C7 DP will bring the dominant force in American sports car racing to iRacing.

Powered by a 5.5 liter Chevrolet V8 engine, the Corvette has won no less seven rounds of the 2015 Tudor Sports Car Championship, including the prestigious Sebring 12 Hour race.

Development on the virtual version of the car seems to have progressed quite far already as iRacing is planning to release the car in September.

    Upcoming Corvette C7 GT3 would get more love than this

    • Bakkster

      The GTE is the one that people have been really requesting. We’ve got how many modern front-engine V8 GT3s already, but no modern GTE.

    • Professional Operator

      I much prefer this car, I can play GT3 everywhere, every sim racing game has a GT3 class.

      This Corvette Daytona Prototype somehow reminds me of the good old GT1 class
