Sorry folks, it looks like even with our legions of loyal readers seeking a quick buck by way of our ground-breaking $1000 bounty on spy photos of the 2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1, it just wasn't enough to beat some kid in a forum. That's where we found this shot of the new super-Vette which apparently hit the track this afternoon for some hot laps in the hot Monterey sun. We now hear it's been boarded back up in its truck and is now Detroit-bound. But fear not, we won't be deterred. It's obvious we just need to snag some change from under the couch cushions to drop into the basket for our next bounty. Maybe we'll even double the price and see if we can snap shots of Zee Really fast One with even less camo β€” like none at all. [via Corvette Forum]
