-What's up guys?
This is Antoine Goodwin with CNET.com.
We're on the floor at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show taking a look at the new Corvette Stingray.
Chevrolet has brought back the Stingray badge for this new Corvette.
They think it's that impressive.
Now, underneath this hood, we've got a 6.2 liter VA that uses direct
injection technology to make 450 horsepower and 450 pound fitted torque.
That's how it's gonna exit all of it through the rear wheel by way of a 7th speed manual transmission that uses an interesting active rev matching technology.
Sort of like we saw on the Nissan 370Z, so you need to press the clutch and change gears.
You're gonna get a little blip from the engine's computer to match the engine speed to the wheel speed for smoother shift sort of the best of both world between a manual gear bots and an automatic transmission.
We use of some lightweight technology here in putting a full aluminum frame and carbon fiber on the hood and on the roof, those are both stock features.
The point here is to reduce the weight and to keep the center of the mass low for more nimble vehicle.
Now we're expecting the new Corvette to go on sale on the 3rd quarter of 2013 and this is probably one of the most highly anticipated cars of the Detroit Motor Show.
