More photos coming out on future Corvette products!

We opened this week on Monday with the latest spy photos of the C8 mid-engine Corvette and now we get to close out the week with another look at the 2018 Corvette ZR1 as it was spotted at the entrance to the Milford Proving Grounds.

Our friends at AutoGuide.com have 12 new photos of the ZR1 so go check them out!

This Admiral Blue Corvette ZR1 is interesting as there is no rear wing, big or small, attached to the rear deck. Earlier photos published by CorvetteBlogger appear to show the smaller wing mounts extend into the rear cap and its our supposition that active aerodynamics will play a role on the ZR1.


The Corvette ZR1 also is showing off the star-shaped silver aluminum five-spoke wheels that appear to have become the exclusive wheel of the ZR1 prototype models. These are the third different style to be spotted as the ZR1s were spotted previously with black wheels at the Nurburgring while a small wing ZR1 Convertible was spotted in Detroit with what we believe to be chrome wheels. The wheels are inscribed with the ZR1 logo as was also spotted at the Nurburgring, but these logos appear to have been covered with duct tape.

The new photos also give us another really good look at the reworked front fascia with its massive air vents on each corner, as well as the new hood with additional venting that surrounds the power bulge.

Additional rumors point to a supercharged LT4-based engine that will be offering somewhere in the neighborhood of 750 horsepower. Don’t believe the reports of the 10-speed automatic (developed jointly with Ford) though as Tadge and the Corvette team have repeatedly said that the 10-speed auto exceeds that packaging requirements for the C7 Corvette as its mounted in the rear. Tadge wouldn’t lie to us about that, would he?

If some rumors were true, the 2018 Corvette ZR1 is supposed to be showing off its uncamouflaged body to the public for the first time this weekend at Road America. We don’t think that’s going to happen and other than the LA Auto Show, we feel the car is most likely to debut in January at the 2018 North American International Auto Show with production starting in the Spring of 2018.
