Chevrolet is proud to introduce the Corvette Z06 Convertible which will be shown in the metal next week at the New York Auto Show. It is described as being the “most powerful convertible ever produced by Chevrolet” and comes with a power folding soft top that can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 30 mph. The vehicle has received carbon fiber or Carbon Flash dual accent panels behind the seats. Chevrolet says the vehicle has a “nearly identical” weight compared to the coupe since no structural reinforcements had to be made.
At its heart is a V8 6.2-liter LT4 engine generating “at least” 625 bhp and a maximum torque of 635 lb-ft. The engine works with either a manual 7-speed gearbox or an optional automatic 8-speed transmission.
