The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has once again been caught doing some road tests. This time however, it was not alone as a mid-engine Corvette was also seen to be doing some tests together with its ZR1 sibling. Here's what the new model brings.

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: Testing With Sibling

According to report, this is the first time that the two upcoming vehicles have been spotted together. Because of this, there are now a few points of comparison even though both models are camouflaged. It was mentioned that the mid-engine Corvette has a long rear section despite its overall body being short. In addition, spy shots show a sloping nose and a bulging hood that makes it appear that there will be an intake on it.

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 on the other hand has a higher stance compare to the mid-engine Corvette as reported. Spy shots suggest that it has two separate wings, which is expected to help with its aerodynamics. Similar to its mid-engine Corvette sibling, the ZR1 also has a bulging hood and a more aggressive-looking front section.

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: The Most Powerful One Yet

Motor Trend reported that the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is expected to be the highest-performance version in the Corvette lineup. Apparently, it will be taking on big names such as Porsche and Ferrari including its long-time rival Ford GT. Accordingly, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is expected to get a supercharged LT4 V8 that is capable of putting out 650 horsepower. The mid-engine on the other hand will be powered by a 6.2-liter direct-injected LT5 V8 but no numbers have been revealed about it yet.

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: Expected Arrival

Reports state that the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is expected to arrive in the market later this year. Apparently, it will be introduced as a 2018 model when it hits the showrooms. Given this fact, there is a lot for enthusiasts to look forward to in the upcoming super car.
