[VIDEO] 2018 Corvette ZR1 Convertible Prototypes Now Wearing Chrome Wheels


These “on the road” sightings of the 2018 Corvette ZR1 prototypes always seem to come in batches, and now just like that we have two recent videos to share showing the smaller wing ZR1 Convertibles on the streets of Michigan.

At the beginning of May, a reader captured what we think is the best view yet that the smaller wing ZR1 represents the first active aerodynamics system for the C7. That prototype Coupe was wearing the swirl wrap camouflage only on the rear upper fascia and most likely the front fascia was wrapped.

In both of the following videos taken on June 3rd and June 6th, the 2018 Corvette ZR1 Convertible prototypes are seen fully wrapped in the swirl from head to toe. Not only that, I am pretty sure this is the first time we are seeing the now common star-patterned wheel design in either chrome or polished aluminum.


Here are some stills:

Three days later, another 2018 Corvette ZR1 Convertible Prototype was spotted fueling up at a gas station. Based on the sound, we would have to agree that there is an automatic transmission in this one. The instagrammer who took the video gave his best boxing night introduction:

Still no word on when the Corvette ZR1s will be unveiled and their true purpose revealed. The consensus is still Road America in August. Stay tuned!

  1. Check your eyes. Those are not polished or chrome. They’re sparkle silver (like on the C6ZR1) or pearl nickel (like on the C7Z06).
