Last week’s video of the two C8 mid-engine Corvettes being followed by a 2019 Corvette ZR1 was great news for Corvette enthusiasts as it was the first sighting of the next generation Corvette in about a month.
Not only that but seeing the ME’s with a ZR1 fires up the imagination! Why is the ZR1 in the Rocky Mountains with the Mid-Engine Corvettes? Is it doing its own high-altitude testing or could the ZR1 be used as a benchmark against the ME powerplants? So many questions!
Several more sightings of the Mid-Engine Corvettes in Colorado confirms that an engineering team was camping out behind a Holiday Inn in the Frisco/Breckenridge area. We say camping as the only thing missing from this view of the team’s tent and heavy car covers is a campfire.
Security is on guard 24/7 when the cars are parked in the lot and the yellow tape is a clear indication of the line that shall not be crossed!
Last week, two different CorvetteBlogger readers sent up their photos of the C8 Mid Engine Corvettes testing in Colorado. This first batch comes from Florida’s Village Vettes Corvette Club:
Last week a member of our club, the Village Vettes Corvette Club of The Villages, FL was traveling thru the mountains of Colorado, Frisco to be exact, and stumbled across the Corvette Mid-engine testing team. She said they were making runs up and back to Keystone, Vail, Aspen.
This next batch of photos shows the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette testing on the roads. These photos are a bit grainy, but check out the very short front end and the headlights which be seen shining through the black camo as they drive through the tunnel. These photos are credited to Adam White!
I was in Colorado on vacation with my family last week. On July 19, just before 1:00 pm, I noticed a heavily camouflaged Corvette (looks just like the mid-engine pictures you have here) enter I-70 westbound just before the Eisenhower Tunnel. This entrance to the Interstate would be used if you had just finished coming over the top of Loveland Pass (US Hwy 6). My wife also saw an impressive array inside the car of a large laptop and several illuminated gauges.
