Chevrolet teased its seventh-generation Corvette again today by tweeting this picture of it wearing a car cover.
Far from being the most revealing piece to be made public before the car’s January debut during the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, the teaser image doesn’t deliver any new information. In fact, it’s probably one of the least informative things you’ve seen about the C7. In light of that and in case you missed out beforehand, here’s what’s known about the car so far.

It will come with Chevrolet’s all-new 6.2-liter LT1 V8 which makes an estimated 450 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. While that might not seem terribly impressive in an era where supercars routinely make much more than that, consider this: it’s also lighter than BMW’s 4.4-liter V8. What’s more, the new Corvette will be much lighter overall thanks in no small part to the fact that it shares almost no parts with its predecessor.
Exterior styling will change too — all the way down to its new badge, but the car will still look distinctly like a Corvette. Despite that, the interior will be worlds better than previous models including seats that are actually comfortable. GM is also expected to ditch its nasty habit of going straight to the parts bin for cabin buttons. Instead, the ‘Vette will have an interior that, hopefully, will be closer to competing with more upmarket brands like Porsche.
