General Motors recruited engineer and race car driver, Zora Arkus Duntov,
to help them inject some performance into their brands.

Corvette SS Preps for Race at Sebring 1957
The 1957 Corvette SS 'concept car', was built in order to race at the 24
Hours of LeMans. Two chassis were built, 'the Mule' and the car to be
raced. Its first race would be the test for its preparations at LeMans.
This race at the 12 Hours of Sebring would determine whether it could take
on the world at LeMans.
Famed engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov, had lead a team of engineers to build
this ultra-lightweight (1850 lbs) and powerful (307 horsepower) racing car.
They were inspired by the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing and the Birdcage
Maserati. To keep weight down, they used a magnesium body that surrounded a
tubular steel frame with coil-over-shock front suspension, a de Dion rear
axle and aluminum drum brakes. Its fuel-injected small-block V8 could
turn out 307 horsepower at 6,400 RPM.

Sounds of 1961 Corvette
This is from a 1961 Sales Demo 33 1/3 recording. Zora Arkus-Duntov - The
name Zora Arkus-Duntov has long been inextricably linked with Corvette in
the minds of automotive historians and enthusiasts. But the story of Zora
Arkus-Duntov runs far deeper than his twenty plus years of professional
involvement as both Corvette's primary advocate within General Motors and
as the fiberglass sports car's first chief engineer.
2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 vs 2013 Porsche 911 C4S! Head 2 Head Ep 42
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst restage our
annual Best Driver's Car competition with this year's winning Porsche 911
Carrera 4S plus two contenders that missed the initial dance, the all-new
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the explosive, exotic Ferrari F12
Berlinetta. The Ferrari is the most powerful car we've ever taken around
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with its ferocious 6.3-liter 731 horsepower V-12. The
Corvette comes packing the latest version of GM's venerable small block, a
6.2-liter cam-in-block V-8 that kicks out 460 hp and 465 pound-feet of
torque. The Porsche and its relatively tiny 3.8-liter flat-6 might seem out
gunned, but remember that for the last two years the 911 has beaten back
every BDC challenger we've thrown at it. Does the Corvette have what it
takes to dethrone the 911? Does the wailing Ferrari? Watch and find out!

Corvette SS at Sebring Race Day 1957
The Chevrolet Corvette 'SS' is an experimental magnesium-bodied car and set
a new lap record at Sebring, Florida, in 1957. It has served as the
forerunner of many Corvette sports/racing models.
The Corvette SS raced for the first time at Sebring, where suspension
problems and other mechanical defects forced its retirement after only 23
laps. General Motors was enthusiastic about the potential of the SS based
on results from practice and lap speeds.
Juan Manuel Fangio, the winner at Sebring in 1957, was impressed enough
with the car to test the SS under practice conditions. The results was
astonishing: Fangio completed a full lap a full 3:27.4 seconds faster in a car he had never driven before
than other drivers could in cars they were experienced driving.
