After 50 years of crossing multiple finish lines worldwide, Chevrolet's Corvette is celebrating its golden anniversary in racing. The vehicle known as the "muscle car," defied its age and recently won its racing class for the fifth time in six years at Le Mans – a sports car endurance race. As part of the celebrations, GM is releasing a production version of the Le Mans racecar, a 505hp Corvette Z06.
