In 1957 the Corvette SS was developed to be the Corvette race car that would beat the best of the European sports cars; the Ferraris and Maseratis. It took Zora Arkus-Duntov only 6 months to develop this purpose built racer. The SS engine deveoped 307 hp at 6,400 RPM from it's 283 c.i. iron block. The aerodynamic drag of the SS was similar to that of the famous D Jaguar and its frame weighed only 180 pounds and was patterned after the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. The instrument panel was functional and elegant. A clock was included which proved useful in the endurance races. The car was a spectacular hit at Sebring in 1957. The SS legend has grown ever since!
