Just days ahead of its official reveal at Geneva, Chevrolet reveals a couple of full images of the new Stingray Convertible.
We’ve seen several renderings as well as some images that may or may not have been leaked from the desk of some GM designer, but today we have official images of the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible. Set to debut later this week at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the open-air version of the Corvette Stingray Coupe looks, for the most part, exactly how we envisioned it would, and that’s certainly not a bad thing.
The convertible is powered by the same 6.2-liter V8 as its coupe sibling, producing a healthy dose of 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque and mated to either a seven-speed manual or six-speed auto with paddle shifters. Differences from the coupe are slight, but look carefully and you’ll notice the air vents have been relocated from the rear haunches to the car's underside to make room for the power folding top. Sources also indicate that the vehicle pictured is equipped with the optional Z51 Performance Package, with thin five-spoke alloys packing upgraded brakes. Stay tuned for official specs and details from Geneva.
