If you want a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette but can't quite save up enough pennies for the monthly payment, we have good news for you. Toymaker New Bright has pulled the covers off of its 1:8 scale remote-controlled version of the American sports car. Complete with a very detailed interior and LED headlights, this large-scale R/C is as close as most of us will ever come to having one of the menacing Chevrolet models to call our very own. New Bright still hasn't released pricing or availability, but word has it the coupe should hit the market soon.

Right now, it appears as if the C7 will hit shelves in Torch Red, though we don't know if other colors are planned as well. The good news is that New Bright isn't exactly turning its back on the old C6 – representatives say the company will continue to make its popular C6R racecar for those who prefer round taillights.

      That'd be so badass with a completely different body covering it.

        Actually I would agree New Brights suck. They seriously Actually do. But you can strip that shell off and put it on a far better hobby or competition grade 1/8. Then again you can probably weight for the officially licensed, lighter weight, lexan, shell to come out by some reputable RC parts maker.

          Uh ok I'll just "weight" until the Viper bodied version comes out and still not buy it.

      So I can strip the body off, and put the body on a decent 1/8 RC. New Brights habitually suck donkey balls.

        Probably not. Doesn't look like the typical lexan body for "real" RC. This is a Toys R Us special.

      It's "functional", like all the 453 vents.

      When I was kid, New Bright was the crappy budget R/C car brand...many of them still had cords attached and were "remote controlled" rather than "radio controlled". They were a step or two below Tyco and Nikko. I wonder if they still suck.

      Sweet, a C7 for the average American.
