Spyshots: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 at GM Proving Grounds

Spyshots 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 at GM Proving Grounds

The 2014 Corvette C7 was recently spotted at the GM proving grounds in Michigan. Some visible features during the test included the Corvette styling trademark – the four circular taillights and quad exhaust tips. The new Corvette will get a possibility of HID headlights or even full LED headlights while the front fascia and grille will be more aggressive then its predecessor.

The C7 is expected to feature a small-block 5.5 liter V8 producing up to 440hp. There’s a possibility of direct-injection, cylinder deactivation technologies and the newest generation of the magnetorheological shock absorbers, also found on the 2013 Camaro ZL1. The new Corvette may also use a shorter wheelbase and feature a seven-speed manual and eight-speed automatic.

  1. If … you’re dying to know what the C7 really will look like … have a look see at Jalopnik as they’ve nailed down the looks to the point of GM not being able to deny their accuracy . ( in fact GM has stated publicly that they are PO’d about it all )

    As to the C6 ( the ZR1 variant ) In case you all missed out : it was placed head to head with the MP4-12C and the 458 Italia with the ZR1 kicking the MP4’s tail in every test ( except 0-60) including lap times ( by almost a full second ) and barely being eclipsed by the 458 . With ….. the ZR1’s price as tested being less than half of either the 458 or the MP4’s cost . And …. the Macca coming out the big loser on all counts

    So what the C7 ZR1 may bring one can only imagine . Maybe Ferrari losing its Top Dog status to the C7 ZR1 as well ? Stay tuned . Only time will tell .
