Will it be a supersized version of the supercharged LT4 or will we see a dual overhead cam LT5 as has been rumored to be in the works? Perhaps this video will finally start answering that question.

It’s the first big event of the year at the museum and it’s also where GM unveils all the latest offerings on the next model year Corvette. This year we’ll get a look at the 2018 Corvettes hopefully including the just announced Carbon 65 package. We’re still holding out some hope that the much-speculated ZR1 will make an appearance, but that’s a long, very long shot (read: probably not gonna happen).
