The North American based automaker Chevrolet is planning to launch the Corvette Stingray Convertible during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March.
With the Coupe version of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray making its world debut a couple of weeks ago, during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, the Convertible variant of the same sports car will make its public debut in March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. According to the guys at Auto Week, the model in question will start production in August and it will go on sale as a 2014 model year.
If it will indeed see daylight for the first time in Geneva, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible will most likely use the same LT1 6.2 liter V8 engine as the Coupe, with direct injection and CVVT. The unit is producing a total output of 450 BHP and it has a peak torque of 450 lb-ft (609 Nm). This is enough to allow the Coupe to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 4 seconds and to return 26+ mpg on the highway. Additional details on the Corvette drop-top are limited for the moment.
