What you’re looking at are spy shots of Chevrolet’s mid-engine Corvette and upcoming ZR1 testing together in cold weather conditions.
The mid-engine Corvette can be seen here with a camouflaged bonnet to hide the decidedly curvy shape, or maybe even an intake. We also noticed openings along the rear fenders that indicate the use of side air intakes, and a rear section which exposes the quad exhaust tips. However, the absence of a spoiler or even a rear diffuser on a sportscar like this could mean that this prototype may be in the early stages of development. Prominent bulges on either side of the roof to liberate better headroom for the occupants are also visible.
On the other hand, the ZR1 seems to have a slightly higher ground clearance in comparison to the mid-engine Corvette. While both ZR1 test mules seem to be equipped with different wings, you just can’t miss the sharp and sporty looking nose section. Sources report that the ZR1 could be powered by the brand’s new LT5 6.2-litre V8 motor, and may debut in the last quarter of 2017.
