New Chevrolet Corvette C7 to debut at Detroit Auto Show

New seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette will debut on Jan. 13 at the Detroit Auto Show.

To kick off the countdown to the debut, Chevrolet has released an image of the new redesigned Crossed Flags logo – the iconic symbol that has been part of the Corvette since its introduction in 1953.

“The all-new, seventh-generation Corvette deserved an all-new emblem,” said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design. “The new Crossed Flags design reflects the character of the next Corvette. The flags are much more modern, more technical, and more detailed than before – underscoring the comprehensive redesign of the entire car.”

The seventh-generation Corvette only has two carryover parts from the C6 – the cabin air filter and the rear latch for the removable roof panel.

The C6 Corvette production will stop in February in order to retool and prepare for production of the C7 model in the third quarter of 2013.
