First, the next-generation Corvette will probably get a more powerful version of the current 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine. We could also see turbocharging, and we definitely expect more power than the current ZR1’s 750 hp. It will have a dual-clutch transmission, but hopefully it will be optional along with a manual (though that’s doubtful).
We’ll also be looking at lightweight materials such as aluminum, carbon fiber and fiberglass. Surely GM’s MagneRide will make an appearance and it will be world-beater fast.
But back to the pictures at hand. We could already see the cab-forward design of the midengine ‘Vette. But now we can see the huge side air scoops to cool whatever powerplant goes back there. We can also see new vents in front to cool oil or transmission fluid. The headlights still look concept-y to the eye, but maybe that’s just the way they’re covered.
