2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible Debuts in Geneva

Chevrolet has revealed the new seventh-generation Corvette Stingray convertible at the Geneva Motor Show.

Power comes from the same 444bhp 6.2-litre V8 found in the hardtop model, enabling it to reach 0-62mph in under four seconds. As no structural reinforcements were required for the convertible, both models share almost identical power-to-weight ratios.

The all-new, fully electronic top can be lowered remotely using the key fob, and it can be opened or closed on the go, at speeds up to 31mph.

“The convertible has been a part of the heart and soul of Corvette since the very beginning in 1953,” said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design. “With the all-new Corvette Stingray, we designed and developed the coupe and convertible simultaneously. As a result, the Corvette Stingray offers an open-top driving experience with no compromise in performance, technology or design.”

Both the coupe and convertible will arrive in global markets in late 2013.
