Chevrolet Drops The Top On The 495HP Mid-Engine Corvette Stingray

Earlier this year, Chevrolet enamored audiences around the world with the reveal of the 2020 Corvette Stingray. The highly-anticipated update to the company’s iconic sports car was met with praise, thanks to the vehicle’s all-new mid-engined layout, upgraded performance capabilities, and affordable price tag. Now, Chevrolet’s legendary flagship has stolen the industry spotlight once again.

To keep buyers on their toes for the upcoming season, the Detroit-based manufacturer has announced the first hardtop convertible variant for its upcoming Stingray, offering interested parties an exhilarating driving experience that doesn’t cut back on sporty performance — by much. The new hardtop certainly has its benefits when compared to the company’s soft-top variants, including a quieter cabin, enhanced styling, and protection against theft. But having the ability to drop the Corvette’s top on a whim is bound to induce drawbacks; specifically, when it comes to weight. The composite hard-top will add nearly 80-pounds over the Corvette’s Coupe variant, resulting in the introduction of a bespoke suspension system to deal with the extra mass. But rest assured; it’s still powered by the same 495-horsepower 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine and Tremec eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, meaning that you won’t have to sacrifice performance for a bit of novelty.
