SuperVette Test Mule Spied Again

by Keith Cornett on November 8, 2006

SuperVette Test MuleRick Conti has posted a picture of another supervette test mule that was spotted outside Detroit. The engineers at GM finally decided to cover the shoebox hood scoop and duct tape that was viewable on the previous photos with a black camo cover that covers the entire hood. The photographer was not a professional, but just an enthusiast that saw the Corvette and was able to snap a photo. His comments are below:

I took this photo a couple of days ago in Detroit –it was parked not too far from a group of guys I saw talking and doing some work on a laptop inside a Tahoe (with a “Manufacturers” plate on it!).
Another Corvette enthusiast without a camera also spotted a supervette test mule outside a shopping mall in Troy, Michigan. Here are his comments:
Last Sunday I saw the next (to be announce) Super Vette in Troy Michigan near the Somerset Collection (upscale mall). At first I just saw the rear quarter from a distance and I thought someone had trashed a Z06. Once he turned the corner I could see that it was the new Super Vette. It appeared to be a white Z06 with polished stock wheels, but… it had the typical black vinyl camo on the rear quarters, entire rear bumper, front fenders and the HOOD! The Hood has a bubble that appeared 6″ tall, but I know the 2″ raised C5 & C6hoods always appear much higher so realistically probably a 3-4″ raise. The entire hood was under drapped black camo. Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures but I did immediately call my inside source to confirm its being driven on the street, which it has been for at least a week now….
Hopefully, this on-the-street testing will continue and more photos will be shared. And if anyone comes up with a photo they’d like to share, may I recommend CorvetteBlogger.com? I could make it worth your while!!! Source: CorvetteConti.com Related:
