    We have four pictures of the ME IVERS testing today in Colorado. Picture thanks to the Colorado Car Spotters FB page.

    Does anyone know how many miles they put on these test vehicles? Good Job CCS !

      In at least one of the images, we can see the beginning of the appearance of the taillights. While it doesn't say much yet, it's certainly similar to current standards. It's similar to the ZR1.

        Thanks Itomn. According to C7pimp, the taillights are “filled in.” If I am remembering correctly, he compared their being one piece units as in the latest Camaro.. We all hope that when we see them, we are amazed at how good they look.

        Here, FWIW, here are the new Camaro ones, I think there could be two advantages to their being filled in as one unit, .e.g., more cleanable (not trying to get dust and debris out of the recessed centers like on the C7), and second, that they might have less aero swirling/drag.

          That makes complete sense! Lighting technology is progressing rapidly at present. I would expect any less from Corvette then from any other major brand with a car of this ilk. And, I might add, the rear of the vehicle showing the taillights just might be a ZR1 chase car.

              Excellent jagamajajaran! Thank you for posting those. Next time you drive by one, perhaps your force field will temporarily get the camo to become see-through.

                Looks like there seems to be a better “defined” line going down the side past the supposed Rear vent

                  Here are a couple more photos from another member of the Colorado Car Spotters page on FB. Credit for photos is Duncan Gillies. These were spotted on July 20th at the Frisco Inn:

                    If GM was really trying to be “stealth” and not draw attention to the ME’s, why would they have a ZR1, especially with the high wing option, be the escort vehicle. ZR1’s, by themselves, are still a rare sight on the road and many will follow and photograph them? Hide them with mundane SUV’s, trucks, vans, etc. Not a neon sign saying “ look at me”. IMHO, this was, as many have said before, another “tease” to keep those of us clamoring for more information, on our proverbial toes. I’m still waiting for the “stripper act” and see them loose some of those clothes/pads/camo, similar to what was done with the ZR1. Just drop maybe the roof covering or the doors. What could it hurt? ?. Better yet, take it off, take it all off, baby!

                      I hope that they are LED and they don't collect all that highway debris. They do an excellent job of concealing those bad bears while testing and parked for the night. I'm really surprised that somebody hasn't tried to remove the covers while they are parked and snapped some shots with their cell.

                        They have on-site, 24/7, security when parked at night.
