The C7 Corvette ZR1 is Nearly Ready for its Big Debut

The C7 Corvette ZR1 has been spied testing on numerous occasions, however the latest photos of the high-performance ‘Vette show it looking more production ready than ever before.

The close-up photos were taken as a ZR1 prototype was entering General Motors’ Milford Proving Ground in Michigan. The car is wearing less camouflage than other ZR1 prototypes we’ve seen, however the secret-concealing wrap still covers the majority of the front and rear ends. Despite this, the photos give us a good look at the ZR1’s bulged hood and hood vents and completely reworked front fascia.

Logic would dictate the massive bulge has been applied to make room for an enlarged supercharger. Rumors support this theory, suggesting the ZR1 may be in line to receive a more powerful version of the C7 Corvette Z06’s 650 horsepower 6.2-liter LT4 V8. No matter the engine, expect both a seven-speed manual and General Motors’ new 10-speed automatic it developed in conjunction with Ford to make an appearance.

bulging hood reminds me of 69 Vette, funny how old school things keep coming around.

The rear of the hood next to the windshield looks a lot like my old 73 - 454 Corvette but higher/ bigger. The color is very similar to my old Vette too.
