One of the most popular cars at the Detroit Auto Show this year looks to be the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray and there are two reasons why, the love affair we seem to have with this iconic car and also how sexy it looks from the outside. We’ve all seen videos of how awesome the exterior looks, but we have yet to see the interior closely, or more specifically the reconfigurable instrument cluster.
Autoblog thought that they would give it a few days before they headed back over to see the C7 Corvette Stingray because there were less people flocking around it, and they were right. This was certainly a good move because it gave them the chance to take a closer look inside, which you can see in the video embedded below.
The instrument cluster has an 8-inch high-resolution screen and comes with three different modes and the display model at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show cycles through each of these modes to show us what we can expect in the production models. The first is Sport Mode and has various displays to show you what you need to know, such as how many Gs you are pulling around corners.
There is also Touring and Race Mode, which has us most excited because it is modeled on the C6 racecar. While we love this new instrument cluster it all seems a little gimmicky and one thing is for sure, we do hope that Chevrolet change that steering wheel because it cheapens what they are trying to achieve with the C7. If the C7 was not to your liking, then maybe some of these concept cars were?
