With the invention of social media, platforms like YouTube, Twitter and Instagram have taken car spying to an all-new level. Everyone can join in the excitement.

Having said that, there's some particularly cool things coming out of the Detroit Area. Considering this is where the Detroit Three are based, it's no surprise.

The latest big spy video was taken by a Dodge Charger Scat Pack owner who stumbled across the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. While it's been seen before doing high-speed testing around the world famous Nürburgring, this car was different as it is the first convertible I've seen — at least from what I can recall.

Several things are apparent in this clip. One, note its massive hood. This has been pointed out before with the Nürburgring cars but it's cool to see it again in slow motion. Second, I am not sure about all of you but I love its wheels. They just look great. Third, there is a spoiler attached to the rear deck but it is much more subtle than what we've seen the coupes sporting. Fourth, it is a loud sucker. You can hear its idling V8 clearly.

Let us know what you think, Spies!

Looks like the new corvette ZR1 camouflage with rear spoiler. Driver of the car smiled and laughed when he saw me taking the video lol
