To get GM's 6.2-litre V8 that makes close to 507hp.

For the first time in the model's 65-year history, the Corvette will get a mid-engined layout. The engine will be a developed version of General Motor’s current LT-spec 6.2-litre V8 engine. The all-alloy unit is light, responsive, relatively cheap to build and able to generate around 507hp with little work.

The front-engined Corvette will continue in production and be sold alongside this new car. A hybrid version of the car will add an electrically powered front axle to the mix, potentially giving a total system output close to 1015hp. Like its rivals from Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren, the new Corvette will display its mid-mounted engine through a glass cover.

Other parts of the design remain a closely guarded secret for now. The finished car will be shown in the US early next year.
