They still cover the hood... though we've already seen it.

We made it the DC header.

The article made no mention of it, but it really sounds like this is going to be an exhibition of the ZR1's performance for a crowd. I think that's a FANTASTIC idea! I'm wondering if it will be a full on hot lap or just a parade type lap, since all the testing for the car should be long completed and there's no real reason to go all out. Comments?

Edit: this article from their site says "hot laps"

I'll bet the new stuff (hood, coves, etc.) is still covered up though. I don't believe they'll "open the curtain" yet.

According to the Motor Trend Blog, the hot laps have already happened and the ZR1 has left the area:

I couldn't open the mp4 video so I uploaded it to youtube and shared it on my Corvette Blog:

Oh, by the way, BONER!
