Default C7 ZR1 Interior + Big wing convertible

Motor1.com just posted an article with spy shots of the interior of the ZR1. The car, however, is a Convertible with the big wing. Correct me if I'm wrong but that's the first sighting of a big-winged convertible.

As for the interior, it appears to be the same as a Carbon-65, but the photographer claims that the shifter said 10-speed. One of the biggest features in my opinion is that the speedometer goes up to 220mph. I believe the Viper ACR topped out at 178 with the crazy aero package, so this should be interesting. Too bad they didn't snap a pick of the tachometer...

What's your take on the fresh spy photos?

Too bad they didn't get a better shot of the shifter to confirm if it said 10 speed. The Z06 speedometer also lists 220mph.

I get all the camo on the outside of the car, but had to laugh at the steering wheel. I'm sure the duct tape over that Corvette emblem will keep folks from knowing what kind of car it is.

Automobile has a few more exterior shots, possibly the best yet. It looks far better than I thought it would

Default Just doesn't "synch" in

I have a '14 Z51 vert and I think rear wings can be very cool but there's something that just doesn't look compatible with large(r) wings and a vert....flows much better with the coupe....don't have any practical reason for stating such but.....

I really like the 10 speed in my zl1, that would be killer in the vette!

Default Hmm Size does Matter

I,m guessing the ZR1 isn't going to be a dedicated track car since it's also being built as a very.

The new prototype McClaren has a huge wing also.

Have to admit... I was put off by the big wing initially, but it is starting to grow on me...

Possibly because it isn't a Corvette emblem, but a ZR1 emblem.
