The 2019 Corvette ZR1s are everywhere!
We’ve been following reports of Corvette ZR1 sightings out in the wild for some time now, but over the last few days there has been a major uptick in the pre-production sportscar spotted from Detroit to Bowling Green and now back to South Florida.
We’ve known about three 2019 Corvette ZR1s that have been testing on South Florida’s Alligator Alley since the Dubai launch in mid-November and have written about them when they were first seen on Alligator Alley, shedding their camouflage wraps following the reveal, as well as fueling up those powerful 755-horsepower LT5 V8s.
The same three cars that have been testing in South Florida, a base Yellow ZR1 Coupe, Torch Red ZR1 Coupe with ZTK and a Long Beach Red ZR1 Convertible with the low wing were spotted once again with some friends. You will see those three cars plus two more, an Admiral Blue Corvette Convertible with the ZTK High Wing and the unicorn of the group – a ZR1 Convertible in Black Rose Metallic!
Black Rose Metallic was phased out of 2018 Corvette production in July and many Corvette enthusiasts were sad to see that color go. So how cool is it that this Corvette ZR1 got a Black Rose Metallic exterior prior to the build out. We are sure that there is more than just one out there in the wild, but as far as I am concerned, this is a rare sighting indeed.
Unfortunately, the Black Rose Convertible is a pre-production model and will most likely meet an untimely end at the crusher once the new 2019 Corvette ZR1s begin retail production in March.
Hopefully someone can capture this Black Rose Metallic ZR1 with some decent pics or HD video. In the meantime, enjoy this convoy of 2019 Corvette ZR1s on Alligator Alley.
When the Corvettes drive-by we get a look at the drivers. As someone commented on the forum, “they look like us”.
But cooler…way cooler!
I’ve been alerted that the Black Rose ZR1 in the video is actually painted Long Beach Red and the combination of the lighting and the crappy phone video makes it appear like its the discontinued purple. I wanted to believe, but it looks like our unicorn sighting was just a horse.
