DETROIT — GM continues to tease elements of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette ahead of the car's reveal on the eve of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

A new video provides a few fleeting glimpses of the new Corvette, along with what appears to be a look at early design proposals.

GM issued a statement on Thursday showcasing the Corvette's aerodynamic properties, saying "every line, every vent, every millimeter performs."

The automaker also published two images of the Corvette that track its airflow and reveal its "sculpted" lines — to a certain extent.

"The all-new Corvette integrates more high-performance aerodynamic features than ever before, many taken directly from Corvette Racing," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer, in a statement. "For example, the front grille and radiator flow paths reduce lift, improving vehicle stability at high speeds by keeping the car pressed to the pavement. In addition, functional vents increase track capability by channeling air to the brakes, as well as heat exchangers for the transmission and differential."

The 2014 Corvette will be unveiled on January 13.

Edmunds says: Expect many more 2014 Corvette teasers in the ramp-up to its full reveal.
