Spied: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7

With the winter testing program in full-swing, photographers have snapped the very first pictures of the forthcoming Chevrolet Corvette C7 undergoing testing near the Arctic Circle.

Spies described the C7's overall shape as long, low, wedged. Design details are expected to be taken off the 2009 Corvette Stingray concept, giving the new C7 a more futuristic and sharper look over the C6. Two prototypes were spied near a secret engineering facility, sporting a quad-exhaust system and a longer wheelbase.

Power will come from a new 5.5 litre small-block V8 petrol engine that drives the rear-wheels. The new V8 is expected to develop around 440bhp (446PS/328kW), allowing for improved fuel economy and lower emissions.

The cabin will receive a much-needed makeover, with enhanced materials and improved design. Sales kick-off in late 2013, as a 2014 model.
