Great pics Tim

These are the first pics that have me thinking this is not a ZR1. Theonly reason is I don't see a hood bulge.

Either the ZR1 Motor does not require the buldge and it will be there for appearance purposes, or this car was not actually a ZR1 and GM is getting very good at playing with the media

Yeah I'm not so sure either.
Not much cosmetically different from a Z06.
Wheels, spoiler, that's about it.

GM sure is getting good at playing with the media though.

I dunno. That camo on the hood makes it awefully hard to tell if the hood is a little more pronounced.

I do see a bulge, but it's not too huge. It may be that the sides of the hood are raised a bit, so the bulge doesn't look too big by comparison.

Or maybe we're all just getting played by GM?

(The profile pic (#4) gave me a bulge. )

Formerly defunct.

Check out the profile. There's definately more "hump" on the hood of the car at Laguna.




Although the hump is not as big as the leaked photos before.

I still expect more of a hump on the ZR1 - guess we'll see soon enough

We just need some audio to know for sure. I'm sure somewhere there is proof on whether it was or was not a supercharged version.

I'm sure GM kept that hood shut during their visit to the track that day, they could have had anything under the hood. Now I'm really wondering lol
