2014 Chevrolet Corvette front revealed in service manual

Looking good so far

A portion of the 2014 Corvette's front has been leaked online via Facebook.

Car spy photographer Chris Doane received this photo in his e-mail inbox and posted it on Facebook. From the looks of it, we are dealing with an official dealer service manual for the C7's brake cooling system. The highly anticipated Vette will come as you can see with bigger headlamps, a more pronounced hood scoop and a big side scoop.

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 will be officially revealed on January 13 before the car makes its public debut at the North American International Auto Show. Under its hood it will get a new LT1 V8 6.2-liter engine generating about 450 hp (336 kW) and a peak torque of 450 lb-ft (609 Nm). 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) will probably take less than 4 seconds, while fuel consumption is estimated at 26+ mpg US (31.2 mpg UK or 9 liters / 100 km) on the highway.

Oh man...Not Vertical Headlights...Somehow I knew they were going to screw it up. I personally hate Vertical headlights, I prefer Horizontal Headlights...but it seems that's what the people want nowadays...or is it...Anyway, my all time Favourite Corvette is still the C6...

Doesn't look super cool, but nice enought... As long as it is a good performer as the latest C6, it should be allright... Corvette is a iconic shame, can't change it much anyway. The interior is the one that needed more work, lets see what they did

People rush to judge. It looks great and I bet when we see the real thing it will be an American Corvette all the way, reminding of nothing else.

On what grounds? When has Chevrolet and especially Corvette designers given us any sort of copying from another brand? They remain true to their own style which is sometimes a fail but usually remarkable giving us cars like the current Corvette, Camaro and Volt.

450hp from a 6.2 V8 in 2013 is quite simply. Pathetic. Yes, yes, I know its light etc, but how much faster could it have been?!

They've done higher performance versions in the past - so likely there will more powerful versions.

I know that, hence the etc. However, buying an engine that big with that amount of power is like dating a stunner and discovering she does not go past 3rd base... 72.6hp per liter is not good enough, even a 1.6l Citroen C3 has 74.8hp per liter! I guess you get what you pay for.

Looks strangely the same front design at the new Ferrari (enzo replacement). Boring, typical Chev, no imagination.

GM's history of technological development is second to none. It just is.

Come on GM, just show it. These neverending teasers become boring.
