A Corvette Forum member recently uploaded a number of drawings of the new C7 Corvette weeks before its big reveal at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show, Autoblog.com reports. The post has since been removed from the forum.
The drawings look to be from an owner’s manual or a service guide and show the coupe’s exterior, rear end and inside the rear hatch, then cover details of the cockpit, seats and engine bay, the website said. There’s a new steering wheel inside, and a large central screen with a new array of HVAC buttons underneath. Pilots will get to sit in new sports seats that finally appear to have the proper amount of bolstering for a Corvette.
The dash cluster that was teased in a video not long ago looks like it could be a central LCD screen flanked by analogue gauges for the speedo, water temp and fuel tank, not an all-LCD display. There will be a Track Overlay feature that tracks the car on a track and monitors speed, brake and throttle application, gear selection, G force and direction, lap time and steering angle, and it displays a graph for the Performance Traction Management. This might work with the Performance Data Recorder that is said to be able to save vehicle data, as well as video and audio, to an SD card.
