Default C7 Corvette - Revealed tonight @ 7PM - Live Feed

Since I haven't seen a thread on it; GM has thus far done a pretty good job of keeping the entire car under wraps. . . You can catch the reveal of the new car tonight starting at 6:45 w/ a reveal at 7PM including details, HP #'s, etc. . .

Apparently its supposed to have a much better interior including heated and cooled seats. . .

Some leaked stuff;

that was neat. Rear quarter panels/bumper remind me of the new lotus, side vents looks awful but otherwise not too shabby. Im sure it might look better in a different color than red as well.

7 speed manual? wut


http://bizbeatblog.dallasnews.com/20...uto-show.html/

Wave bye-bye to the old plastic-fantastic Corvette, America’s original sports car.

In a nod to the past and a major reach for the future, Chevrolet unveiled the all-new 2014 Corvette tonight in Detroit, renaming it the Chevrolet Stingray.

The much anticipated ‘Vette was introduced on the eve of the opening of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

And you can forget those old slams — the complaints that the Corvette was crude and unsophisticated.

The lithe, slightly more European looking two-seater gets a carbon-fiber hood and roof panel, a compact high-compression 450-horsepower V-8 and a new seven-speed manual transmission (a six-speed automatic remains an option).

The car’s taut body — fitted to a wheelbase that is about one inch longer than the current car and an inch wider — includes composite fenders, doors and rear quarter panels and carbon-nano composite underbody panels.

In addition, it will ride on a hydroformed aluminum frame that is 57 percent stiffer and 99 pounds lighter than the current car, Chevy says.

Direct fuel injection and cylinder deactivation for cruising in four-cylinder mode were just some of the additions to the ‘Vette’s 6.2-liter V-8.

In fact, the Stingray shares only two parts with the previous-generation Corvette, Chevy said of its new Porsche- and Viper-fighter.

“The 2014 Corvette delivers the fastest acceleration, the most cornering grip, the most track capability, the best braking performance and what we expect to be the best fuel economy ever for a standard Corvette,” said Tadge Juechter, chief engineer for Corvette.

Chevy says the Stingray will rip to 60 in less than 4 seconds and achieve highway fuel economy of more than 26 miles per gallon.

Although the company did not disclose the car’s weight, it should have a better power-to-weight ratio than a Porsche 911 Carrera or Audi R8, Chevy said.

The new Stingray also seeks to fix one of the Corvette’s long-standing problems — an interior that fell far short of expectations for a car costing more than $50,000.

The “fighter-jet inspired” cockpit will be crafted in premium materials such as Napa leather trim for the seats, soft-touch material on the edge of the console, a smaller steering wheel and high-resolution information screens.

Standard Stingrays will blister the pavement with 18-inch wheels up front and 19s in the rear, while Z51 performance models will roll on 19s in front and 10-inch wide 20s in the rear.

“We continually apply technologies and strategies developed for Corvette racing directly to the production car,” Juechter said. “That influence can be seen in virtually every aspect of the new Corvette Stingray, from the aerodynamic design to the use of carbon fiber to the cooling techniques and even in the brake system.”

Corvette did not disclose pricing for the Stingray. The car is expected to arrive at dealers in the third quarter of this year.
