In profile, the Corvette C7 retains the sweeping glasshouse, but the front end appears to be sleeker. More intricate side vents will be fitted.
The interior retains the Corvette’s trademark cockpit feel, with the controls angled towards the driver, and a high level of equipment will be fitted, including electric seats and a telematics system.

A g-force meter and a steering angle indicator will also be featured.
A TFT screen will replace much of the current car’s analogue/LCD display. A button beside the steering wheel will operate the electric hood, confirming a convertible version will be offered alongside the coupe.
