The redesign of the C7 Corvette, due to be unveiled early next year, is probably cloaked with more secrecy than Area 51. Despite that, information has trickled out since late last year.

Back in November, Jalopnik was the first to show the expected styling based on leaked information they obtained. Last month, we got another sneak peek at the face of the new Chevrolet Corvette thanks to an accidental web preview of the molding process for the front fascia. Based on the leaked information so far, and the Jalopnik images in particular, Trinity Animation produced a slick, detailed video showing what they believe the C7 will look like from all angles and in motion, right down to the LED running lights and Camaro-inspired taillamps.

This video will surely spark additional debate and speculation, but we'll all have to wait until we get closer to next year's Detroit Auto Show before we see our first official pictures - and, more importantly, detailed specs - about the C7.

In the meantime, you can watch Trinity Animation's digital take on the next Vette in the video posted below.

      I loth that rear end. The rest of the car looks sharp though, I just hope the rear will be different.

      I know it's just an amateur rendering, but why make the taillights look like the Camaro's taillights? Why try to resemble a car that is beneath this one? Makes no sense.

      Looks cool but where are the iconic round taillights? That is the design heritage of the vette!

      I seriously doubt that the C7 won't have round tailights...when the C5 went to ovals the purists bugged out.

        i would be okay with the ovals, or eving the 'round-squares' from the C4 ZR-1.. but completely square is just not acceptable.

      Get rid of the tail lights and we're a go!

      I hope the new Corvette is better than this. This "visualization" gives new, enhanced meaning to the word derivative.

      The more I look at it the more I see things that just look clumsy to me. Like the door handle for instance and the shape of the headlight. Also that crease and indentation running from the front fender along the door and just barely into the rear quarter just look poorly executed. So many of the these elements just seem a bit ham fisted and I'm hoping it's just a case of "whisper down the lane" exaggeration.

        If they were to say that this was a possible future Nissan product, or even something from Korean, I could believe it. But Corvette? This is an awful, VERY late April Fool's joke.

      I'm looking forward to the C7 'vette. Would be fun to see you yanks land a real blow in the supercar market! I know the C6 does the performance right. Just step up the fit and finish and it will be golden! There's something subtly enticing about the Corvette. The Viper is a little too much for a modest Scandinavian like me, but the Corvette... That's something! So, dear Americans, give the Germans and Italians a run for their money! We need a little US iron :)

        ZR1 already has. 0-60 in 3.2 and 205 top end for 125k.

          As said, I know the C6 (more specifically the ZR1) does the perfomance right. What needs to improve though is primarily interior quality. That is, if GM wants it to be a contender to Porsche/Ferrari/whatever.
