The new Corvette from day one was a pioneer in the use of industry first advanced materials and the features of the new generation include a carbon fiber hood and removable roof panel. Its fenders, doors and rear quarter panels remain composite. The c7 uses Aerogel one of the lighest materials in the world developed by nasa to keep heat from the transmission tunnel from transferring into the cabin.  The under-body panels are made of "carbon-nano" composite and it makes use of a new hydroformed aluminum frame which locates the four wheels an inch farther apart, front to rear and side to side. The rear tail lights use indirect LED technology. Despite the increased use of aluminum and other light weight materials, the overall weight of the car remains the same as that of the previous generation's. The new corvette will use a new seven speed manual transmission made by Tremec and active rev matching. The Corvette will use a sophisticated driver mode selector with 5 settings Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport and Track mode. The C7 will use a C6.R race car inspired functional hood and side vents and inlets for cooling of the different components and for down force. The interior features one of the most advanced driver displays in the industry that changes depending on what mode a person will be in. Two seats will be available for the corvette: a sporty touring seat for every day use, and a competition sport seat for track driving with pass throughs for a racing harness. The new C7 interior is world class with authentic materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber.
