Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
GM India brought along the new Corvette and the Camaro ZL1 to the Auto Expo.
The new Corvette is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine which produces 450 hp and 610 Nm of torque. This enables the supercar to hit 100 km/h from rest in 4 seconds. Transmission is aided by a newly developed 7-speed manual gearbox which features Active Rev Matching technology to match the engine’s revs while upshifting/downshifting.
The Vette’ gets a carbon fiber hood and removable roof panel, composite materials for its fenders, doors and rear quarter panels, carbon-nano composite underbody panels and a new aluminum frame to reduce weight.
