Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible takes its hat off in Geneva

Chevrolet has issued the first pictures of the Chevrolet Stingray convertible, which will soon debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

We don’t know many concrete details yet about the convertible, but you bet your bottom dollar that it will be powered by the same 6.2-litre V8 engine as the coupe. This should send 335kW of power (450hp) of power and 610Nm (450lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels via either a 7-speed manual or 6-speed auto transmission.

Chevy is quoting a 0 to 100km/h time of around 4 seconds for the Corvette Stingray coupe and seeing as the convertible likely to be a bit heavier, it will also be a tad slower too.

Geneva might seem an odd place to come out with a Corvette convertible, but given that Lamborghini and Porsche are set to debut new cars or variants there it starts to make sense. And don’t forget that Louis Chevrolet, the man who founded Chevrolet, was born in Switzerland, albeit not in Geneva.

Naturally we’ll update this post with more details and photos as they become available.
