A leaked photo of the upcoming Road & Track issue shows the angry smile of the new Corvette.

A few hours ago we saw the rear of the C7 and now we take a look at its menacing front fascia, before an official unveiling set for tomorrow. The front end sports a large grille, LED lights and a curvaceous ventilated hood which gives the car a very serious stance.

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette has been confirmed with a new 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine featuring direct injection, continuously variable valve timing and an 11.5:1 compression ratio. Power is estimated at around 450 hp (336 kW) and 450 lb-ft (690 Nm) of torque. This should be enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than four seconds and 26 mpg (31.2 mpg UK or 9 liters / 100 km) on the highway.
