Following numerous sightings of the 2018 Corvette ZR1, the report states a debut during the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona may be where we’ll see the latest C7 Corvette variant debut. An unnamed Corvette engineer stated both the C7 Corvette ZR1 and C8 Corvette programs are well underway with no snags or delays, while a second unnamed GM source stated the ZR1 could show face during the 24 Hours of Daytona.
Car and Driver has since updated its report stating the debut date is still in question and could be revealed at a later point in time.
It was long suspected Chevrolet would utilize the 2017 North American International Auto Show to reveal the C7 Corvette ZR1, but we first reported that was not in the cards.
Whenever, and wherever, the 2018 Corvette ZR1 shows face it will likely be packing an all-new 6.2-liter LT5 DOHC V8 engine, per leaked General Motors documents that made their way to the internet a few weeks ago.
