The Corvette ZR1 could be coming soon than expected as Automobile Magazine is reporting the car could be shown at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The location would be a fitting choice as the ZR1 is expected to be the most powerful and track-capable Corvette ever created.
Nothing is official at this point but one of the magazine’s readers sent them photos of a Corvette hiding underneath a cover. The model was being flown on a Boeing 747 and it was the only car on the flight.
This doesn’t necessarily mean anything by itself but the prototype is notable because General Motors put extra effort into the car. From what we can see, the rear fascia is completely camouflaged and the car rides on bright wheels which gives it more of a production look.
This could suggest the company is planning to unveil the prototype at Le Mans this weekend. As Automobile points out, “why else would Chevrolet spend a considerable amount of money just to overnight a single car?”
Chevrolet has remained tight-lipped about the ZR1 but rumors suggest the model will be powered by a twin-turbo LT5 V8 engine that develops more than 700 hp (522 kW).
