2014 1LE without Hood wrap?

Or a new model?

Saw some spy shots in New Mexico of the 2014 corvettes being loaded into Reliable car transporters.
One of the cars being loaded was a yellow SS RS w/ NPP and 20" 10 spokes in black. No hood wrap!
I can't locate the pics now but it was on www.corvetteforum.com C7 section.

What is it?

Geez. Just noticed something. Are the brake rotors on the rear really large?

The test mule is not the same as the production version so yes, i think it had larger brakes.

If so, it's interesting that they would not use another vette of sorts and chose a test 1LE instead :P

Or it could be a */** test mule. Why would they have test mule for a car that's going into production soon?

Could be a CTF car. They have to rack up a certain amount of miles on them before the 1LE can be released and then they keep driving them to see if any issues pop up.

But why the bigger brake rotors? Wouldn't they need to be stock parts to certify it?

I think the guy who took the pic is the father of a poster on corvetteforum. There are other pics as well, but the corvettes are covered and the Camaro is uncovered.

I bet its emissions high altitude tuning...they are checking the camaros too. Probably means the 6.2 rumor in the vette is true.

If you want a 1LE withOUT the hood wrap, just order one and peel it off. Its a vinyl wrap and removable. I did that with my car. My 2SS had stripes and I had the dealer remove them and prep the car without them so I could buy it. I didnt want any stickers on my car.

I think most people know its a sticker by now. The OP was saying it could be 1LE minus the hood wrap OR another model.

Could be either 430hp LT1 for SS/1LE or 486hp LT4 for ZL1? I think it is likely the LT1 for 2014. LT4 won't be ready until 2015.

Are the rear brake rotors on the ZL1 any larger than the SS rotors? Could be the model we all want which shall remain nameless or they could be testing a brake upgrade for the 1LE. Your guess is as good as mine.

According the GM website, the ZL1 has bigger rotors than the SS.

ZL1 has 14.6 Front and 14.4 rear
SS has 14.0 Front and 14.4 rear

Yea I've wondered if we'll see either of them in the last year of Gen5? I know the C7 is right around the corner and getting a new engine.
