Both of the factory Chevy Corvette C8.Rs have unloaded in all-new liveries ahead of this weekend’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
Both the Nos. 3 & 4 entries are now in a primary grey color instead of the previous split yellow/silver designs that had been on the cars since the mid-engined Corvette’s debut in 2020.
The No. 3 car of Jordan Taylor, Antonio Garcia and Nicky Catsburg is grey with a red stripe while the Tommy Milner, Nick Tandy and Alexander Sims-driven No. 4 car features white accents.
There are no hints of the manufacturer’s traditional yellow color on either car.
Factory Corvettes have only raced a handful of times without yellow, the most recent being in the 2019 FIA World Endurance Championship round at Shanghai when its solo Corvette C7.R was sporting a special silver Redline livery.
It’s understood the liveries are for Sebring-only, celebrating its partnership with Mobil
The differences between the two cars can be spotted with the different stripes packages shown. The No. 3 Corvette is trimmed in Red with a Red full-body racing stripe while the No.4 C8.R is trimmed in White.
The only Yellow we now see on the cars are some small stickers that appear affixed to the wheels.
Confirmed these liveries are for Sebring as a celebration of the racing team’s partnership with Mobil 1 who is the title sponsor of the Sebring 12 hour race. Mobil 1 is the official motor oil for the Corvette and has been factory-filled in all new Corvettes since the early 1990s.
