It’s been decades since Chevy has outfitted the Z06 with a drop top, but this year marks the end of that dry spell with the introduction of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible.
Until now, the parts needed to operate a convertible top added way too much unnecessary weight to the mix. Chevy has solved this with a lightweight aluminum frame that makes the drop-top version of the C7 Z06 weigh nearly the same as the hard-top version. Of course you still get everything you love from the Z06, including the LT4 6.2-liter supercharged V8 powerplant putting down 625 horsepower through the seven-speed manual or 8-speed paddle shift transmission. The convertible can be opened or closed in just 30 seconds right from the key fob. No price tag has been revealed yet, but don’t expect this thing to come cheap.
