From the start, Tadge Juechter and his team designed the C7 Corvette with a no-compromises convertible in mind. The result of that forethought is a Corvette Z06 convertible that is almost as light as the Z06 coupe and just as powerful. Chevy introduced us to the car last night at a little event away from the bright lights of the New York auto show, and it’s pretty impressive.
Its supercharged 6.2 liter V-8 makes 625 hp and comes mated to either a 7-speed manual or 8-speed automatic. It’ll sprint to 60 in 3.5 seconds. It’s a real Z06 and yes, you can get it with the Z07 performance package.
