She arrived at the event in the new vehicle with Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter.

Keeping details to a minimum, the big United States maker only confirmed that the new-generation Corvette will be mid-engined and revealed in the U.S. on July 18. It is the first time Chevrolet has confirmed the C8 Corvette's existence and the first official images outside of spy shots. Chevrolet announced it would auction the final production front-engined Corvette, a black 2019 Z06, at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast sale in CT on June 28.

A camouflaged prototype has been seen driving around Manhattan with General Motors CEO Mary Barra in the passenger seat, but the timing was too tight to have a launch at the New York Auto Show next week.

This first Corvette C8 model we will see in July is the base Corvette Stingray, which will kick off the lineup. But what we really want to know is if that second sports vehicle will be the Corvette.

The price tag is expected to go between $60,000 and $70,000. As for exactly what engine will reside amidships, that's still unknown, but rumors have suggested a 520-horsepower V8 will be on offer. A supercar positioned mid-engine V8, a naturally aspirated version on the entry-level model and a twin turbocharged version on what is now being called the C8 Z06.

Chevrolet hasn't given much away about the new model, other than it will be officially revealed on July 18. Unfortunately for stick-shift lovers, the range is said to be mated exclusively to a Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, bringing an end to the manual-equipped Corvette.
