It seems that the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is entering the final stages of development and testing. As we hear its pre-production could begin later this week, several prototypes were spied in Marietta, Ohio to provide a good look at what’s going on in Chevy’s Corvette R&D department right now. Thanks to the Corvette Blogger team, we have access to an exclusive spy video and photos of widebody C8 trial cars.
As you can see in the gallery below and the video at the top of this page, there are four Corvette C8 prototypes with center-mounted exhausts, plus one with the exhausts mounted on the corners of the bumper. Our source says Executive Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter was on location to join the test session. You know it’s serious business when the big guns are there.
According to the available information, there was a film crew documenting the testing, and this could mean Chevy is also working on some sort of a documentary for the Corvette Z06 and/or Corvette ZR1. Corvette Chief Engineer Josh Holder was filmed speaking on camera, probably providing some internal information about the development of the sports car. A test drivers’ meeting also happened in front of the camera. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
