2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 spy shots and video

Behold our latest spy shots and video of what’s likely to be a new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 supercar.

Corvette talk of late has centered on a new mid-engine platform but that’s not expected to be introduced until the arrival of the next-generation Corvette (C8), tipped to be debuting at the 2018 Detroit auto show. Before that Chevy will send out the current Corvette (C7) with something special, and a safe bet would be on a ZR1 model making a return.

Featured here is what we believe to be a C7 Corvette ZR1. The photos above show a prototype for the coupe while the video below, from Indian Autos Blog, shows both coupe and convertible testers.

General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] on May 16 trademarked the ZR1 name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Admittedly trademark filings are often made to simply protect a storied name, but these prototypes suggest otherwise.
