The 2010 C7 Corvette..mid-engine?
At the beginning of 2009 Chevrolet informed its public of a 2010 C7 corvette mid-engine. From the beginning of time Corvettes always used standard engine placement (front). The 2010 is the first of its class using a mid-engine, this improvement will enhance the weight balance making the C7 Corvette better at cornering and braking.
The mid-engine layout, would most likely cost more than the existing model. Corvette purists would almost certainly decry such a major change, considering its impact on handling and exterior styling. Corvette engineers had major issues with the cost of a mid-engine layout. Rumors are that the engineers have found a way of making a mid-engine layout while keeping the price close to a fully loaded Corvette.
The C7 Corvette has been sent to production and is planned to be release 2010. Hoping to see it at the Le Mans next year showing off.
