After the 2018 Corvette ZR1/Z06X was recently captured up close by spy photographers, the Corvette Team must believe it can go ahead and drive their C7 prototypes out on public streets. Maybe they have been doing it in Michigan but this is the first time we’ve seen them so far from home.
These new spy photos by Greg Dickson show the two C7 prototypes parked at a Qdoba restuarant in Marietta, Ohio.
We spoke with Greg on Tuesday afternoon and he told us he saw the two prototypes at the Qdoba restaurant. He said the cars pulled in and were quickly covered with a tarp and then the engineers went inside for lunch.
Afterwards, they pulled off the tarps and drove way. Our witness explains that they headed north on Ohio State Route 26 and describes the roads as very nice for Corvettes as they offer twists and turns in the rolling Southeast Ohio countryside.
As you can see, the two Corvettes are without any rear aero. One is missing everything while the other does have the struts to support the large rear wing that has been seen previously.
The top photo shows a Corvette having turned a wheel as it was leaving and you can get a pretty good look at the blue brake calipers and the large rotors that are most likely part of a Brembo carbon ceramic brakes package. Every recent Corvette model has its own standard brake color and Blue caliper was standard on the C6 ZR1.
So what are you hoping these Corvette prototypes will be? We think its going to be a killer factory built track car while others purport it to be the C7 ZR1 with 750 hp. Either way, Corvette fans will be the winner as Chevy is continuing to develop new cars on the C7 platform.
