WorldCarFans—or pretty much everyone who’s been able to snag the most recent edition of Automobile Magazine—all seem to have gotten an early sneak peak at the new arse of the next-generation C7 Chevrolet Corvette, due for its full unveiling in less than three days.
Check out more news on the Chevrolet Corvette.
So far, what we could see is a fairly aggressive and masculine design. For instance, notice how squared off the rear is a la Camaro status, and check out that giant rear diffuser and quad exhaust. Very chizled indeed, but how will it be received? Only time will tell until the full unveiling.
So far, we know the next gen C7 Corvette will receive Chevy’s most modern Generation V small-block V8. Said to displace 6.2L, the new LT1 V8 will don direct injection, a continuously variable valvetrain, and a very high 11.5:1 compression ratio. The result is 450hp and 450 lb-ft of torque with speculation putting the 0-60 time at “less than four seconds” with a return of 26+ mpg.
