The huge wing at the back of the new ZR1 appears to have the same gigantic size with the wing of the Corvette CR.7 GT Le Mans class race car. However, the wing on the new model seems to have been enhanced as it looks more stylish.
With regard to the front aero, the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 seems to have been treated differently compared with the existing Corvette Z06. The new design on the front fascia seems to give the new model the fiercer aura.
The new model's bumper now has four exhausts, where two huge openings on both sides can be found flanking the two grilles. The upper grille is almost close to the height of the side openings while a thin grille is placed under the big grille.
The headlights of the new ZR1 were not concealed. The mule confirms that the new model will retain the ones found in the existing model.
