Carbon fiber hood

The new Corvette makes use of carbon fiber for its hood and roof to reduce weight. Composite materials are used throughout both the body and aerodynamic elements for the same purpose.

Seven-speed manual transmission

Power exits through the rear wheels by way of a seven-speed manual transmission that uses an Active Rev-Matching feature similar to what we've seen previously on the Nissan 370Z.

More efficient

Direct-injection, cylinder deactivation, and variable valve timing should make the new Corvette the most efficient yet. Chevrolet has not yet announced fuel economy estimates for the new model.

Quad taillights

Four rear tail lamps remind us of the Chevrolet Camaro, which incidentally borrowed its quad-light configuration from the 'Vette's.

Zero-60 time

The Stingray will hit 60 mph in under four seconds, if Chevrolet's claim is true, and grip a corner at over 1g.
