We had a lot of fun over the weekend following the testing of C8 Corvette prototypes as a large contingent of engineers are driving the next generation Z06 in the higher elevations in Colorado. Lucky for us, we’ve been able to check out some of these cars via postings on social media.
This group of four Corvette prototypes includes one 2020 Stingray and three 2022 Corvette Z06s which can all be differentiated by the black camouflage cladding, wheel covers, and the visible rocker panels which are much larger than anything we’ve seen previously. Unfortunately, none of the Z06 prototypes featured that center-mounted exhaust which was previously captured over the weekend on video.
These pics come from a quick video posted to the Colorado Car Spotters Facebook page by Matt Gaum. The four prototypes were on I-70 in Colorado when they came across some slower traffic.
The C8 Stingray in the group was sporting a unique set of exhaust pipes which turned the dual-outlets into a single pipe. Our friend Chet Baigh of the C8 Corvette Owners (and Friends) Facebook page spotted this car over the weekend as well and sent us this photo. We can’t quite make out the license plate of the car as it passed by in the video, however, as both are sporting red side mirrors, we are pretty confident that it is the same car.
