BridgetoGantry.com has seen spotted Corvette’s ZR1 yesterday at the NÃ¼rburgring. Dale Lomas, writing for the officially unofficial track blog states that the weather has been warm and dry over the previous days and that has brought out Team Corvette and their supercharged 638 hp Corvette ZR1, this time dressed in red. Dale goes on to speculate that GM may have been looking for a lap time as he “spotted a helicopter chasing something that sounded very V8 and awfully supercharged…”
Although that may be the case, the photos again show a passenger riding shotgun so its doubtful that an attempt to lap the ‘ring in “seven minutes and twenty-something seconds” as Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter alluded to last week was happening when these photos were taken.
As for the helicopter? The ZR1 has proven to be a boon for spy photogs and it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see arial footage of the new supercharged bad boy making its way around NÃ¼rburgring’s Nordschleife.
