Spy photos of what is believed to be a new mid-engined version of the Chevrolet Corvette have surfaced in the overseas press this week.

Captured by spy photography group Chris Doane Automotive for US mag Car & Driver, the images reveal a Frankensteinian mix of Holden Ute and Corvette pieces.

In these images, we see the front and rear panels of Holden’s VE SS-V Ute, sandwiching a Corvette roof and cabin.

All of this sits on a stretched track - note the massively pumped flares - suggesting the final production car will be a significantly wider beast.

Why the Ute panels? According to Car & Driver, it’s all to accommodate and disguise a new mid-mounted engine layout that will transform the Corvette into a true supercar.

It has been reported in the past that the new model will be badged as the next ZR1, although GM is also known to have trademarked the name ‘Zora’ in honour of Zora Arkus-Duntov, the ‘father of the Corvette’.

The report suggests the new hero model will be sold alongside the regular front-engined Corvette, with a launch set to occur late next year.

For now, the Corvette range is headlined by the 466kW Z06, which also boasts a quicker Milford Road laptime than the previous-generation ZR1.
