In 2008, two Dallara Daytona Prototypes were built according to G2 specifications. But in 2011, the cars were then upgraded to G3 spec with then-new Corvette bodies. Thus, the two came to be known as the Corvette DPs – two race-ready Vettes weighing in at 2,285 pounds with the ability to easily travel 200+ miles per hour. Both feature carbon fiber bodywork and an IMSA-specific aero kit, along with Brembo carbon brakes and Dallara Version 2 suspension.
The No. 003 chassis features an updated C7 Corvette-inspired body that was installed in 2014, making it the only Dallara-Corvette built to current IMSA specifications. The No.004 chassis wears a C6 body, and has the technological features of the 2013 IMSA specs.
CorvetteBlogger got to speak with a representative of the dealership who informed them that the goal is to sell the two cars jointly, as they have always been together. No pricing has been released, though interested parties may contact the Paramus dealership for further purchasing info.
And who wouldn’t want to spend too much money on machines like these? While it’s true that these cars will not be sold with the currently installed racing motors, they will still be extremely capable with whatever engines they are sold with.
Also included in the sale are spare Dallara Genuine parts, valued at over one million U.S. dollars. Again, that’s just the parts. Though the cool thing about this is that both cars have sophisticated life-time parts software which keeps track of every item installed on the car, as well as the parts in inventory.
If you happen to be sitting on a heap of cash, and want the best performance money can buy, this may just be the deal for you.
