LeMans Glow in the Dark Corvette

Labre Competition has probably made the coolest car that will be racing in the lowest racing class at LeMans. They took a C7.R and made it an art car.... and it glows in the dark. Considering this is a 24-hour race, you can definitely expect this to turn some heads when it starts emitting some bright colors.

Designed by Ramzi Adek, a street artist, he was able to create an amazingly unique competition Corvette through the use of graffiti style.

I'm actually quite excited to see how this looks on the cameras taking footage of the race and you can bet it'll be getting substantial attention!

If that's not a distraction for other racers on the course, I don't know what is. But I'm definitely not a fan of that livery anyhow, I think it's way too juvenile looking.

The kit on it's own though, phew, gorgeous.

Actually because of its darker tones odds are some racers won't be able to spot it as easily as other cars. Often race cars have bright color scheme's, this takes an opposite approach.

Prime example right here:

But in the night time with it glowing that bright, I would think it'll look much brighter than the yellow? Without the sun, the yellow dies down quite a bit, whereas without the sun in this case, the whole car turns into a glow stick lol

I guess if it were to be a big enough issue, they wouldn't have let it pass to be able to be put on the track. Safety is a huge concern for them so if this was allowed, there shouldn't be much to worry about.

One thing I do notice is you really don't see any sponsor stickers on there. Either that or they're just blending in with the crazy graffiti.

Did anyone watch LeMans ??

I didn't but I heard there was a prototype that may or may not have been flying over there, by itself, on a 747 headed for Europe.

Doubt they would have taken it to LeMans though as it doesn't make sense for it to be there at all. It still had camo on it and the exhaust sound-deadener piping.
