625bhp for Convertible Corvette Z06

Convertible Chevrolet Corvette Z06 ready for New York debut

Open-top Corvette gets at least 625bhp for its public debut, ahead of limited sales beginning in the UK in 2015

The new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 convertible will make its world debut at the New York motor show later this week. It’s the open-top sibling to the Z06 coupé, which was shown in Detroit earlier this year.

This is the first fully developed convertible version of the modern, hardcore-performance Corvette, but it isn’t the first soft-top Z06. In 1963, the Z06 package was first offered on the Corvette for endurance racing. 199 examples were thus fitted, but only one was a convertible. It’s taken more than 50 years for a follow up.
