Geneva Preview: Corvette Stingray Convertible

The first official pictures of the new Corvette Stingray Convertible surface on the web ahead of the car’s debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The drop-top Stingray features a fabric roof that comes in different colors to contrast the exterior finish and match the interior.

Compared to the Stingray Coupe, the soft-top has a tamer design with a less aggressive front and rear fascia. When you lose the roof, you lose all sense of sportiness and track prfirmance. The car is now more about cruising and having a good time, so it doesn’t need particularly good aerodynamics.

The convertible is powered by the same engine as the hardtop, which is a 6.2 liter V8 developing 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. It should be a bit slower than the coupe, but still, with  a 0 to 60 time of around four seconds, it is seriously quick.
