Canada in January is one place where you won’t find this American hanging out as we are enjoying our sunny and 70 degree weather here in Florida. I dare say there are more Canadians in Florida than Americans in Canada this time of year. But recently one American was spotted playing in the Canadian snow and we’ll share that news because we’re talking about the 2018 Corvette ZR1!
These spy photos were shown at Motor1.com so head on over to take a look.
Although the last round of spy photos of the “Big Wing” C7 Corvette variant showed the car without its front covers, they are back on for their trip to the great white north as the car undergoes cold weather testing.
With all that snow, one of the first things we considered were the tires. These are definitely Michelins on the prototype but after doing multiple back and forths between this photo and the tread patterns found on the Michelin A/S 3 All Season tires, I am convinced they are different tires. Another point is that Michelin doesn’t make the A/S 3 sized in 335s for the rears of the Grand Sport and Z06 models, yet these tires appear to fit nicely on the prototype ZR1.
The latest rumor going around is that the 2018 Corvette ZR1 is skipping NAIAS and if that’s the case, we’ll have to wait a bit longer to learn all about the newest cruise missile in Chevrolet’s arsenal of horsepower.
In the meantime, here’s our archive of 2018 Corvette ZR1 news from the last six months to keep you entertained until the details are made officially known.
