Chevrolet has revealed the Redline livery that the No. 64 Corvette C7.R will feature in next month’s FIA World Endurance Championship race in Shanghai.

Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner will drive the Silver-colored Corvette, which also features striking red and black design elements, hallmarks of Chevrolet’s series of Redline production vehicles in China.

The design includes a red front bumper, black wheel hubs with red logos and red lines running the length of the vehicle, with the black tail featuring the Redline logo.

“I’ve driven three generations of Corvette – C5-R, C6.R and C7.R – all in yellow. To see it now in the Redline livery is fantastic,” Gavin said. “It’s cool, it’s new and it’s sharp. Certainly looking out over the hood for the first time when it’s silver and not yellow is something to get used to.

Milner added: “It looks great. It still has the heritage and passion of a Corvette, for sure. The styling cues are really important in defining the Redline livery.

“It’s a really sporty look. I think we’re both excited to drive a Corvette in something other than yellow!”

The fifth round of the 2018-19 WEC season will mark the Pratt & Miller squad’s only second appearance in a WEC round outside of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the team’s Asian debut.
