For the 2012 Grand-Am season, Chevrolet was the first to unveil it's new DPG3 bodywork.  This Corvette body kit will be built by Pratt & Miller and will be sold to customer teams.  These body kits will fit on any existing Coyote, Riley, or Dallara chassis. 
 
This Corvette DP will be powered by a 5.0L V8 making 530BHP @ 7,000rpms and 450ft-lbs at 5,500rpms.
 
Four teams will campaign the Corvette Daytona Prototype in 2012: No. 90 Spirit of Daytona Racing; No. 10 SunTrust Racing; No. 99 GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing, and the Nos. 5 and 9 Action Express Racing teams.
 
This is only the second mid-engined race car to run with the "Corvette" name.  The first being the Corvette GTP of the 1980's.
