Stingray Comes Topless to Geneva

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible has been officially presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

Having teased us with a couple of pictures, Chevrolet has arrived at the Geneva Motor Show with the drop-top Stingray, demonstrating the roadster's all-new fabric roof mechanism. The fully electric three-layer top has a glass rear window and can be lowered remotely from the key fob, and opened or closed at speeds of up to 30 mph. With the all-new Corvette Stingray," said GM design chief Ed Welburn, "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." Indeed, the convertible has all the performance capabilities of the coupe, packing the same 6.2-liter V8 with 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. The only structural changes are limited to making room for the folding top and repositioned safety belt mounts. To our eyes, it looks even better without the roof, particularly with the Z51 package fitted. Either way, both coupe and convertible variants of the Stingray will arrive in late 2013.
