04. The New C7 Vette Is Here
At this past week's North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, all eyes were on Chevrolet and the introduction of the all-new 2013 Chevrolet Corvette. Dubbed the 'C7' Vette, this next-generation sports car brings with it significant interior refinement, the most powerful base engine ever installed in the coupe (a 450 horsepower, 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 that is also good for 450 lb-ft of torque), and the hottest performance right out of the box (0-60 mph in less than four seconds). Styling changes made to the new Corvette were evolutionary but dramatic, as the car now features a greater number of vents and hard edges that combine to give it a more aggressive personality.
