    Based on an English Lola T600 chassis and supplied with a turbocharged 3.8 liter V-6, the mid-engine Corvette GTP prototype was developed to compete in the International Motor Sports Association’s GT racing series. Producing more than 750 horsepower, the GTP (Grand Touring Prototype) was equipped with active suspension system and carbon brakes. The GTP, painted red over silver for 1985, was first displayed at the 1984 Chicago show with a white over silver body.
