    Sigh. Another day, another Corvette. Yesterday it was the 2014 Corvette C7. Today it's the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Daytona Prototype that'll race in the Grand-Am Road Racing Series next season. Although that one won't get a split-window, today's does.

    Although the racer makes its competitive debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway on January 28th, the new Corvette Daytona Prototype will get a chance to play in a GRAND-AM test at Daytona International Speedway on Wednesday, Nov. 16th.

    Four teams will sit behind the wheels of Corvette Daytona Prototypes 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.

    "The 2012 Corvette Daytona Prototype was developed by a multi-faceted effort involving Chevrolet, Corvette Designers, Pratt & Miller and GRAND-AM. Chevrolet also worked closely with chassis builders Riley, Coyote and Dallara," said Mark Kent, GM's Racing director, in a press release today.

    All we know is that this one sexy Grand-Am racer. Seriously. I kinda want to lick it.

    Also, you know, split rear window. Just sayin'...
    Come on Chevrolet, now build an LMP1 prototype....

    Nice looking beast. Bucks the trend of all DPs being hideously ugly.

    This is what grand-am needs. Starting to look like the GT1 of the late 90's, which is fine by me
