The base C7, powered by this fifth-generation small block will make at least 450 horsepower and 450 foot-pounds of torque while demonstrating 26-miles-per-gallon fuel economy, according to The Detroit News.

GM officials say the base model will go zero to 60 in less than four seconds.

The new Chevy Corvette will be unveiled Jan. 13 in Detroit, the news story said.
