2014 Corvette Leaked



Quote:
After the rear of the 2014 Corvette Stingray was revealed just hours ago, the very first photo of the front of the seventh-generation of America’s sports car has also now hit the net.

Leaked via the above-the-embargo-law site Jalopnik, we now have our first look at the C6.R-style gaping front mouth of the C7 Vette.

What we do know about the 2014 Corvette so far is that it will be powered by a 6.2-liter small block LT1 V8 making roughly 450 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, while manual-transmission models may receive a rev-match function.

And as dramatic a change as the interior is, look for equally major upgrades inside, with leaked details indicating a premium look and feel, with a digital dash with an info display to show track telematics like lap times, G forces, gear selection, and 0-60 times.

Completely agreed. It makes the ass of the new Exige look decent and that's saying something.

I puked, ate it, puked again. Then with the chunks and bits created a better looking rear end than what is posted above.

The front end looks like an almost direct copy of the new Viper

FWIW, the "official" release of the '14 Corvette is tomorrow (1/13/13), so you can get a real glimpse of what the actual car will look like at the time...

Just three days after release of the all new "Stingray" Corvette, prices on the C6 generation skyrocket.

A new figure released finds just 8 out of 10 children cry after seeing the next generation Corvette rear end. This compares with 4 out of 10 grown men, with 1 out of the 10 dropping to his knees yelling "Why god, why!?"

I am going to be very surprised if they actually follow through with the square tail lights. I can't believe they would apply the corporate image to one of America's longest running halo car.

This struck me immediatly upon seeing the pre-release pictures. I do not like it.

I'm with you. Why make the Vette look like the cheaper (and, to me, hideous) Camaro?

Not a fan of the Cadillac angular, edge-laden styling in the least.

Let us hope the actual new car looks different/better.

The Cadillac SLR is really growing on me over the years. I like the low slung angular look of them. It was before Cadillac started making 5 foot tall bloated cars.

The only thing that bothers me with the SLR was the lack of a manual transmission. Same with the Plymouth Prowler.

It's the XLR, not SLR...And I agree with you on the Prowler, though I am more disappointed that it didn't have a V8, more so than a manual transmission..

Hard to find those Prowlers. Was shopping for one and only found very few, and only in purple and then one black one that was a bit worn out. I really would love to have a yellow one.

The back looks like a Cylon helmet!

Ugly, but less so that slab of a back on the C4, C5 and C6.

Christ is that ugly.

That rear end really does look like a Camaro.

Such an abomination to carry the same badge as:
