No. 99 Chevrolet Corvette Daytona Prototype
Purpose-built strictly for racing on the track, Daytona Prototypes are exotic, thoroughbred race cars. However, they have a few things in common with everyday street cars, including doors that open, headlights, tail lights, brake lights and even windshield wipers, as races are run day and night, and in wet and dry conditions.
