At first glance, the 2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette will make your jaw drop. Chevrolet has upped the ante when it comes to its luxury class. With its distinct features, inspiration for this concept hails from design cues which appear to have been borrowed from the Cadillac brand.
Some may wonder why the new Corvette doesn't mirror the image of the 'vettes from the '60s and '70s such as the much loved Stingray. The design of the cars body, as is prevalent with modern vehicles, takes into consideration the demands of aerodynamics.
This design also reminds others of the '69 Corvette Manta Ray concept with its similar grill, and spacious lines. Extremely pronounced wheel arches and meticulous detail also reflect Corvettes of a gone era. The remaining bloodlines of the car can be traced back to the differences which are apparent or not in the cars interior.
Like the Cadillac CTS, the lines maintain a visual aesthetic which resemble an archer pulling back there bow. Yes, this car is like a crouching predator ready to tackle its prey.
One remarkable feature which is borrowed from the C6 is the incorporation of LED arrows in the turn signals which is an added safety feature. It's a reassuring to know that such consideration is common place in automotive engineering.
