Spy photos and videos suggest that some new Chevrolet Corvette, perhaps the 2018 C7 Corvette ZR1, has a massive rear wing that you could practically eat dinner on. We’ve shared a video of what appears to be this same pack of test mules before, but this one gives a real close-up of the three.
The video comes from a reader of Indian Autos Blog, who sent it to the website recently. The prototype that could be the new ZR1 came in a pack of three in both a video from earlier in October and in this video, each driving by with different-sized rear wings. According to Indian Autos Blog, the reader who sent this video in caught these prototypes testing in Ann Arbor, Michigan:
Not much is known on a potential ZR1 yet, other than the rumor from Car and Driver that the C7 generation’s “final hurrah will occur at next year’s 2017 NAIAS, when a swan-song mega-power edition debuts, possibly wearing the illustrious ZR1 badge.” And, well, that these test mules sound mean.
Autoblog reported back in May that GM trademarked the ZR1 name again, and the potential 2018 ZR1 would follow a 650-horsepower Corvette Z06. Topping that, where the ZR1 typically falls in the lineup, would mean some insane power. But with that wing, insanity is the only thing we can expect.
Thanks, Indian Autos Blog, for sending this along!
