First teaser video for new Chevrolet Corvette postedTue, 23 Oct 2012 00:00:00 -0700
Glimpses--of a clay model, wheels, body panels--is what we get for the first teaser video of the redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Corvette.
The minute-long video also sprinkles in some driving footage, from the driver's point of view, of the "Lutzring" test track at General Motors' Michigan proving grounds.
It's all part of the promotion effort for the new Corvette that leads to the scheduled unveiling of the car on Jan. 13, the night before press preview days start for the Detroit auto show.
Chevy is touting the new Corvette via a dedicated Web site, www.one13thirteen.com, a page on Facebook and feed on Twitter.
More details arrive Wednesday when GM pulls the drape off the redesigned, fifth-generation small block V8 that was designed with the new Corvette in mind, as well as powering GM's next-generation full-size pickup trucks and SUVs.
