7th Chevrolet Corvette - revealed in CAD

Chevrolet Corvette is an American sportscar, spawned six generation since 1953 and has been powered by the oh so American "small block" engine. The seventh generation, the C7 is due to be introduced on January 13th of 2013. Thanks to Jalopnik, we've got to see how the 7th generation will look like.

The 2013 car is set to ditch some of its forebear design cues, for example the wrap-around rear screen for a more modern layout. Overall, the new car is edgier than its predecessor with prominent body surfacing that is crisper at the intersection and at each edge. The rear end too has taken some leaf out from the Camaro front-engined car, with squared-off quad rear light setup.

Chevrolet Corvette C7 will be powered by the enhanced version of todays LT1 6.2L V8 engine, although there is a talk of offering an entry level version 3.6L V6 to satisfy the demand for emission and consumption legislation imposed by CAFE law in the US. The more powerful ZR1 will be introduced a bit later as a 2014 model so the enthusiastic for scorching Corvette needs to wait a little longer. Some more photos after the jump.
