The upcoming Corvette with centrally located engine has not escaped careful car spies at Nürburgring.
Chevrolet is working intensively on a completely new sports car with a centrally located engine. Until recently, it was claimed that it would simply be the new generation Corvette, but there are rumors that it would be a separate model called Zora.
Spotted prototypes throw light on what the production version will look like and how different it will be from the current Corvette C7. The most noticeable is the new exhaust system with the exhaust pipes on the sides.
In front there is a reshaped bumper, which reminds us of the old Ferrari models. It also has additional ribbing on the side air intakes, which may be related to the placement of daytime running lights.
Most of the elements are still provisional and will be changed in the final version. There will certainly be other lights installed at the back and front, mirrors or the engine cover.
As far as the drive is concerned, it is said that we will see a 4.2-litre V8 with a twin turbocharger and a power of around 650 hp. This is supposed to allow for very good performance, saving the weight of the vehicle, as well as lower fuel consumption while driving calmly.
The road version of the model will be completed with a racing version. Zora.R will have all the elements required for racing cars, i.e. a much more aggressive body, a fixed spoiler at the back and a padded interior. A few weeks ago we published his spy pictures.
