Chevrolet Corvette, the sports car division of GM, will be unveiling the 2014 C7, an all new sports car later today. The new C7 will not be very different from its current model, the C6.

2014 Corvette C7 reveals itself today without major changesThe report also says that the new Corvette C7 will be evolutionary, but not revolutionary. The C7 Corvette has already emerged on the internet with photos showcasing the car. These photos appear to be a scan from a digitized service manual and reveal some information for auto fans eagerly awaiting its official launch. From the images, it is evident that boot space has been enhanced while width of the vehicle is also augmented. Seats are ergonomically designed and can be electronically adjusted to individual comforts.

A specially designed dashboard and steering wheel with hands free phone and sound system buttons offer maximum driver comforts and conveniences along with optional paddle shifters for automatic options. Seats of driver and passenger can be heated or cooled as per requirement while auto climate controls and enhanced infotainment system are also part of the new Corvette C7 design.

Where engine details are concerned, the C7 is expected to receive the Chevrolet Generation V small block V8 engine resulting in a 450 hp power, 450 lb/ft torque and sprint time from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds.  Fuel consumption is pegged at 26 mpg (11.05 kmpl).
