2018 Corvette ZR1 caught up close

What you see here is the 2018 Corvette ZR1 that’s currently under development. The popular American sports car was spotted testing in the Great While North.

The ZR1 will return with more performance than ever before. The 2018 model in fact will churn out more power than the last ZR1 that was based on the C6 Corvette. Power should come from a supercharged V8 developing over 700bhp. All that power will be routed through a manual transmission.

The 10-speed automatic seen in the Z06 might not be offered in the ZR1. The vehicle is likely to have a large rear spoiler. An active aerodynamic package could be offered as well to keep its handling in check.

The new ZR1 is expected to show up sometime next year and


will soldier on for a few years after the launch of the next-gen Corvette.
