We're still about a month away from the official unveiling of Chevrolet's 2014 Corvette, but a leaked drawing appears to have revealed the sports car's new front end.

The leaked image comes by way of a General Motors Service Bulletin which outlines the installation procedure for a front brake cooling deflector kit on the new C7 Corvette. The leaked drawing was posted to the Facebook page of spy photographer Chris Doane.

From the leaked drawing it is apparent that the C7 Corvette will adopt a more Ferrari-like front end treatment complete with longer headlights and more pronounced fender arches. The C7 also sports a much larger front grille and looks to have added air vents on its hood.

The drawing doesn't show much else, but larger side vents are clearly visible just aft of the Corvette's front wheels.

The new Corvette will likely need that extra ventilation as the car is set to arrive with a new 6.2L V8 developing 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque.

Chevrolet will unveil its all-new 2014 Corvette at the Detroit auto show next month, so be sure to check back for more information as well as live images.
