Here are the actual colors on the chassis of a 2014 Corvette.Note that the rocker panel wraps under the car, this has been true since at least the C5 (1997) Corvette.

 

Anybody have any info on a 2014 Corvette 1:25 plastic kit?

As a matter of fact, Edmunds has 29 photos of 2014 Corvette chassis. Click HERE. If we ever get a kit to build, these will be a big help.....

Any info on what appears to be two 'vents' in the bellhousing, between the exhausts?

Probably just that. Remember that is not a transmission but rather where the torque tube connects. The vents are probably there to allow air flow to cool down the components.

I thought to cool the clutch discs(s?). Inside the tube is just a pair of u-joints.

Having said that, I don't know why cool the clutch; it's not exactly a tractor puller...

almost certainly a kit of the new C7 Corvette will come out IMO

 

the chassis remains basically similar to the C5-C6 with the composite floor boards, and unitized steel / aluminum frame sections, plus hydro-formed side rails
