[VIDEO] C7 Corvette Z06 Prototypes Caught Testing in Colorado

With C7 Corvette Z06 production slated to begin sometime in 4th Quarter, we’ve been wondering where all the spy photos of the new supercar are. Like the Corvette Stingray, we know that Chevy has been doing extensive testing and will be making changes to the car right up until the time the first retail Corvette Z06 heads down the production line.

So it’s lucky for us that TheFastLaneCar.com’s Roman and Nathan got a tip that a group of Corvettes were doing some high-altitude testing in the high-country of Colorado so the duo jumped at the opportunity to track them down and see what’s going on.
