It looks mean, it looks nasty and we’ve been waiting for it: this camouflaged Corvette prototype with a massive stinkin’ wing just could be the new C7 Corvette ZR1.


It would make sense, too, because the Z06 and the Grand Sport are out already and we’re just waiting on the ZR1 to make an appearance.

It is also quite safe to assume that the monstrous supercharged LS9 engine that powered the previous ZR1 is retired for good and we’ll most likely be looking at some tuned version of the current Z06's LT4 engine. Something more than 650 HP, hopefully. I can dream. How crazy can it get?

Here’s the video that caught the prototypes out testing in Ohio, where GM has a few plants.

You know...if I was to buy a corvette I think one of the things that could really made me happy would be to put all sorts of weird stuff on it, and then have it wrapped in that prototype camo. Fake vents? giant wing? hell, I’ve even mock up some LS heads and headers for under the rear glass for Car and Driver’s sake.
