Early next year, at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show, General Motors will unveil the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7, the American car giant’s flagship supercar. While we’re still a few weeks away from the official unveil, the stage seems set for a leak or two detailing the brand new car. In this vein, there’s a leaked service bulletin, which purportedly shows the front end of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7. Apart from giving us a sneak peek of how the Corvette C7 will look like, the service bulletin doesn’t reveal much. From the leak, we’re able to make out that the Corvette C7 gets more than a few changes up front.
2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Supercar Leak
The 2014 Corvette C7 gets longer headlights and wheel arches that are more pronounced than before. The front grille also seems to have grown in size while the hood sports air intakes. The car does seem to retain the traditional looks of the Corvette, with the long hood and pronounced front grille being major design elements. Under the hood, a 6.2 Liter V8 engine that outputs 450 Bhp of peak power and 610 Nm of peak torque. This engine is expected to be mated get both manual as well as automatic transmission options.
Given that the Corvette C7 is a full model change, the sportscar is expected to see a whole host of refinements that focuses on the car as a whole. In line with that, expect changes to the suspension, handling, ride and the interiors. The 2014 Corvette C7 will sit at the very top of General Motors car range, above the likes of the Camaro variants, which is another sportscar in GM’s car range. Will General Motors India ever launch cars like the Corvette and Camaro here? By the looks of it, we can only wish that they will.
