The date? The 12th, January, 2013. It’s the eve of what could quite possibly be a day that goes down in automotive history. Tomorrow (January 13th, 2013) the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 will be revealed. Next to these excited words is a spy photo of the C7 dressed in full camouflage. However, tomorrow, at the Detroit Auto Show, this camo will be lifted and the all-new Corvette will be revealed to the world.
The expectations? The Corvette’s engine will be a 6.2-liter V8 which is also said to improve fuel economy by deactivating cylinders. However, power is not expected to suffer as there are reports of the car having up to 450 horsepower. Handling is also expected to improve. The new Corvette is said to be a more driver-focused machine, improving the feedback from the wheel and roads to the hands of the driver on the steering wheel.
Chevrolet has also released some teaser trailers of the process of building the new Vette on Youtube. One of the new videos suggests a higher quality interior which, as we all know could definitely use some improvement because of the plastic landscape of the former Corvettes.
Some months ago, the PlayStation 3 exclusive video game, Gran Turismo 5, released a camouflaged Vette C7 (such as the one pictured above) as a DLC (Downloadable Content). In the game, players could download the car and drive it around any of the tracks available in the game.
Final verdict? The brand-new Chevrolet Corvette C7 was one of the most highly anticipated cars of 2012, and with the new year, the new car could leave a lasting impact on the 2014 model year. It could also be the beginning of a new-age of American driver’s cars with the rumors and speculations on a possible complete transformation of the Ford Mustang. And, with the car being unveiled tomorrow and the eventual closing of the Detroit Auto Show, all eyes will be transferred from Chevy and Detroit to automotive journalists for their final reviews and test drives of the car.
So, make sure to keep track of time, count down with the rest of the world, and visit back here soon to hear the story of the Corvette’s unveiling. Then, make sure to report back later to read The Full Throttle Time’s final review of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7.
