Photo spy of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 2018 during a testing session.
a little over a week we did echo of the passage of Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 2018 for the Nürburgring. The development of this beast on wheels go ahead and, once again, our photographers have hunted a unit while conducting a series of road tests. However, and unlike previous occasions, we can take a look with more detail thanks to the photographed unit has lost camouflage.
The spy pictures have been taken near the facilities of General Motors in Milford (united States). In comparison with those published during the last few months, the progress that we see in the development of the model is important. We have previously been able to see this version available in different bodies (Coupe and Convertible). Yes, never with this kind of detail.
The development of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is not exempt from controversy, since the firm itself does not release garment and the fact that, as we have said, has been seen in the old continent trying to get the best time of his category in the layout of the Nürburgring. He has even been seen equipped with the optional package 1LE. Its launch will be the icing on the cake to the last generation of the Corvette with front engine.
The drive of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 photographed has lost a significant amount of camouflage.
, paying special attention to the front, we see that from the hood to the bottom of the air inlets has been removed a relevant amount of camouflage. A few air intakes that are of a considerable size. Is already endowed with some of the final elements that we see in the production version. The central part, which shares panels with the Corvette Z06, as was seen in the open in the first units that “outing”.
In regard to subparagraph (mechanical, I still find the information quite contradictory. There are those who point out that it will be powered by a specific version of the V8 engine LT4 currently used by the Corvette Z06 and the Camaro ZL1. However, other sources opt for a V8 DOHC LT5. In any case, regardless of the engine used, it seems pretty clear that it will be accompanied by a automatic gearbox 10 speed.
Without a date of official presentation, the latest reports pointed to a possible implementation over the appointment Road America to the calendar of the championship IMSA. However, this test takes place on the last day, 3 to 6 August. And as we can see, still no trace of the new Corvette ZR1. What will you see this weekend? It is not disposable, so we will be attentive to this test car.
