PLYMOUTH, Mich., February 27, 2013 – SANLUIS Rassini, a leading automotive supplier of suspension and brake components in North America, was selected by the Chevrolet Corvette engineering team for its unique two-piece rotor design, which offers significant weight savings and extreme performance at high speeds.

Rassini’s Automotive team has produced the industry’s first-ever rotor with a ductile iron hat and gray iron brake plates for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which makes its debut this summer. The unique combination of ductile and cast iron provides a weight savings of up to 18 percent while also improving the Corvette’s heat management capabilities, giving the sports car reliable and consistent stopping power.

A component of the Corvette Stingray Z51 Performance Package, the Rassini dual-cast braking system affords confident stopping power to the 6.2-liter engine that powers the Stingray from 0 – 60 mph in less than four seconds.

There’s been a Torch Red C7 Corvette Stingray sighting (PHOTOS) in Arizona and the spotting was significant for a couple of reasons:

1) This is the first look we get at a non-Z51, base model C7 Corvette, with GT seats, A6 automatic transmission, and silver wheels, and without a rear spoiler.
2) This pre-production Stingray was reportedly spotted with a heavily camouflaged Z06 C7 Stingray which is on its way to testing at the Yuma proving grounds!
