Chevrolet decided to bring the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible to the Geneva Motor Show 2013. The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe saw its debut at the Detroit Motor Show earlier this year. The first example has already sold for the lofty price of $1.4 million. The presentation of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible perhaps indicates an increased focus on the European market!
The new Corvette is the most powerful base Chevrolet Corvette ever produced. The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible features the same new generation LT1 GM V8 engine as the Coupe producing around 450hp. It is able to launch to 100km/h in under four seconds, pull over 1G when cornering and stop from 100km/h in a similar time to the Z06 Corvette.
To top off the impressive engine, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray also makes use of a seven-speed TREMEC manual transmission with Active Rev Matching. As the name suggests, Active Rev Matching helps the driver perform the perfect up-shift no matter their experience level. For those who prefer to relax when driving, it is also available with a six-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.
