A noisy Corvette prototype has been pounding around the Nürburgring
During a recent Nürburgring industry pool day (basically a very expensive track day for upcoming cars), a heavily camouflaged Corvette was spotted by one of those industrious YouTubers that live in the trees around the circuit where cars have a tendency to fall off.
Wearing a tarmac-scraping chin spoiler, bulging bonnet and a rear wing fit for a GTE car, it’s more than likely that this is the new ZR1. And with the supercharger whining off the big V8 and that angry bodywork, it doesn’t half look aggressive.
But you may also notice a set of funny exhausts protruding out the back of the car at 90 degrees. Well, they’re not likely to make production, rather fitted to reduce the racket coming out the back by deflecting the noise to the other side of the track so not to annoy the Sound Police who get all excited if a car reads over 100db.
So, one thing we do know about the new Corvette is that it’s loud. Good.
