Mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette caught making a McDonald's run

Should clear up speculation on the one spotted in Traverse City,MI

I know they've been reworking that factory for a while. Production will be in the same area as when they were producing the Cadillac XLR.

Shape looks good but I don't care for the wrap. What is that anyway, Plastidip? Hefty?

Finally looks like the Vette may get a modern DOHC twin turbo engine. 850 hp from 5.5 L looks good.

About time. Kind of silly to still be putting engines with 60+ year old OHV technology in a car like that.
