Spy Shots: 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1
An almost completely undisguised test-mule for the upcoming ‘Blue-Devil’ Corvette has been spotted ahead of the car’s official reveal at the Detroit Motor Show in January. Though we still don’t have a confirmation of the car’s new name, earlier reports suggest it will carry the classic ZR-1 moniker.
These latest spy shots reveal several never before seen details such as the 20in wheels wrapped with 325mm tires up back and a pair of cooling vents on the car's flanks, necessary to cool the huge disc brakes. At the rear is the unmasked diffuser with integrated lights.
Under the camouflaged bonnet is said to be a new supercharged version of the LS3 6.2L V8 engine, which could output anywhere up to 650hp. Head over to Jalopnik to see the images in full.
