The 2014 Corvette C7.R that Chevy raced to victory at the 2015 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring has been listed for sale online for an eye-popping sum of $950,000 USD.
This Corvette C7.R is the third chassis that was manufactured by Pratt & Miller after it introduced the C7.R for the 2014 racing season. Any complete Corvette C7.R would be worth big bucks, but No. 3 is the winningest Corvette C7.R chassis in existence, so it is particularly valuable. Its winning record began when Corvette Racing took back-to-back victories in it at Long Beach and Laguna Seca in 2014 before the team went on to win both the 6 Hours of the Glen and Mosport with the car later that year, as well.
The 2015 season was where chassis No. 3 really began posting big results, though. This was the chassis that Antonio Garcia, Jan Magnussen and Ryan Briscoe raced to victory at the 2015 24 Hours of Daytona and 2015 12 Hours of Sebring – two of the biggest endurance races in all of motorsport. The trio also took a podium at Mosport with the car that year.
Pratt & Miller is now looking to offload this car from its collection. The race team recently delivered the car from its Michigan headquarters to high-end car seller Fantasy Junction for consignment, which currently has it listed for just under $1 million. Many race cars that are sold to privateers are slightly altered or have been restored, but this car remains almost exactly as it was when it was being professionally raced in IMSA and the FIA WEC. Pratt & Miller recently installed a fresh engine in the car, however, which was dyno tested at a healthy 574 horsepower. As a reminder, the Corvette C7.R is powered by a race-bred Small Block 5.5L V8 engine, which is paired with a six-speed sequential transaxle.
Fantasy Junction says this Corvette C7.R is also being offered with a “substantial number of important spares,” worth over $150,000. These spare parts include bodywork, suspension components, wheels with Michelin slicks and much more. Spares won’t be of much concern for someone who only wants to use this car as a display piece for their collection, but for those who want to take it to historic sports car racing events, they are a necessity.
Have $950,000 handy and the driving skills necessary to handle a high-downforce, Daytona 24 Hour-winning race car? If you answered yes to that question, consider dropping Fantasy Junction a line before someone else scoops up this rolling piece of Chevy motorsport history. We get the feeling it won’t be available for very long.
