Another week, another C7 Corvette ZR1 spied in the flesh. This time, the amateur spy photos were published by an individual who happened to be at the right place at the right time.
Once again, we see this Corvette ZR1 prototype sporting a massive rear wing, aggressive front splitter, enlarged air ducts up front and familiar five-star spoke wheels. Swirled camouflage adorns these areas, while much of the body is exposed in a typical red hue found on other C7 Corvettes.

The hood’s power bulge is present as well, though it’s still unclear what exactly will be powering the C7 Corvette ZR1. Much evidence has piled up pointing to a 6.2-liter LT5 V8 engine, though a more potent 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine is also very possible. Whatever engine is under the hood, we know it sounds decidedly supercharged.
Rumored reveal dates have come and gone, which leads us to believe Chevrolet may be saving the C7 Corvette ZR1 for a proper auto show introduction. The 2018 North American International Auto Show seems like a good guess as of now.
