GM has officially unveiled the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray convertible in Geneva. The Corvette Stingray convertible gets the same 450-hp 6.2L V8 as the coupe and its electric soft top can be lowered remotely using the car's key fob. The top can also be opened or closed on the go, at speeds of up to 30 mph.
"The convertible has been a part of the heart and soul of Corvette since the very beginning in 1953," said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design. "With the all-new Corvette Stingray, 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."
The Corvette Stingray coupe and convertible arrive in global markets in late 2013, with left-hand-drive models to be offered in Europe, the United Kingdom, the Middle East, Japan and Russia. GM has also released the details for the Z51 Performance Package, which adds an electronic limited-slip differential; dry-sump oiling system; integral brake, differential and transmission cooling; as well as a unique aero package that further improves high-speed stability.
"We wanted the driving experience of the Corvette to live up to the performance expectations that come with the 'Stingray' name," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. "Because it was designed from the beginning as an open-top car, the Corvette Stingray delivers an exhilarating, connected driving experience - no matter what configuration you choose."
