Cool Black C7 Corvette Stingray Spotted Testing in San Diego

As spotted by our sister site Camaro5 member Schmidty. Here's what he had to say:

Thank God my buddy has no sense of direction because we missed our turn at the bottom of the mountain, but when we went back this Black Beauty had just parked in a lot we were about to pass. ChargedCamaro redeemed himself and pointed out this lucky find so we cornered the cornered in the lot and blocked all exits! Turns out there were a couple prototype Corvette's doing some testing on the mountain. We chatted up the Development Engineer and asked if we could take pics. I believe this Black One is the Sport Prototype and they were testing steering. The red one was on the mountain with a large black van behind it (secret service? haha). The engineers joked that it was protected by Pit Bulls. I asked about the blue one which we had seen pics of the crash on different blogs. He mentioned it was a friend of his who was driving it and that it had also recently been on the mountain. Anyway, wanted to share a few pics. This car is absolutely beautiful in person! ENJOY!

PS..we did ask about the 6th Gen Camaro. haha! And like all good employees who love their job...they had no comment. Very friendly guys who thanked us for driving GM cars. And no pics of the red one...we passed her on the mountain and it wasnt a good time to stop.

Definitely a beauty! Black may be the color to go with.

What is the slot in the rear that shows the screws and holes? Almost looks unfinished.

Yep, but I bet those items will be fix on production cars. This is a test car we have to remember.

Missing center cap... no Stingray emblem & no red calipers (less optioned model?). I'd still take it anytime anyday.

I didn't think Black would look that good on this car but it still looks pretty damn mean! I think the grey with black wheels would look even more badass!
