Among many improvements made to the Chevy Corvette for its seventh generation, the interior might be the most important. The C5 and C6 generations were bashed for their lackluster interiors, but the new C7 Stingray is bringing all of the luxury and high-tech goodies expected from a modern sports car. To show an example of this, Chevy has released a short virtual demonstration of one of the highlights inside the car, the configurable gauge cluster.

The video shows just a few of the key features of the cluster, including the ability to switch between the various functions (such as navigation and infotainment) within the tachometer display, as well as the tach that uses a halo that changes color as the engine approaches redline (the redline itself also changes automatically based on engine temperature). One of the coolest features of the cluster might be the track telemetry function, which Chevy says was inspired by the C6.R racecar, showing a plethora of performance data including lap times, acceleration times and a "friction bubble" to display G-forces.

We're in California right now driving the new Corvette, so we should have more information and impressions on the entire C7 car soon. Until then, scroll down for Chevy's video and press release on the car's high-tech gauge cluster.Continue reading Chevy gives guided tour of configurable Corvette Stingray gauge cluster
