You're right, pawan. I remember reading about that in Road & Track magazine. It was the last 'Vette under development which had the blessings of Zora Arkus Dunktov. Unfortunately, big ole displacement won, & the TC V6 went for a toss...

Doesn't the green one belong to the same person who raced the Viper in the last SR? That's a convertible though.

Hema bhai? I thought its Himanshu Gondal. Seems to like only American muscle as he had a Camaro that he sold sometime back.

It's entirely possible that the silver 'vette spotted by GTO (that started this post) is really a ZR-1, BUT I have to say that square tail lamps were not the sole preserve of the ZR-1.

Regular garden variety 'vettes ('91 model year onwards) had square tail lamps too.

Also, the image posted by Cyrus43 above, could be a regular 'vette too ... and I say this only because of the absence of the high-mounted stop lamp (only ZR-1 had those) and the lack of a ZR-1 badge on the right hand side of the rear bumper.

Yup the pic that Cyrus has posted doesn't look like a C4 ZR1 to me. Speaking of ZR1s though, what about the new C6 ZR1 huh? What a car!!!

Same Silver Corvette spotted on Marine Drive last Sunday albeit in a ruined state and shape with stupid advertisement stickers all over. What's with advertising using supercars in India?
