General Motors is tight-lipped about the technical details of the new mid-engined Corvette. It is likely to draw power from a 4-litre V8 engine with dual clutch transmission. The car will also have a shorter wheelbase compared to the front engine model.

On the design front, the mid-engined Corvette will have a shorter bonnet and wider mid section to accommodate the engine behind the driver. All the components will be new as the layout of the powertrain is completely different to the front engine variant.

Currently, the Corvette is offered with front engine rear-wheel-drive setup. The top-of-the-range model draws power from a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine churning out 650bhp and 650Nm of torque.

The transmission options include a 7-speed manual and an 8-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. The Corvette is available in both coupe and convertible body forms.
