2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
The new Corvette ZR1 convertible is a supercar in all respects, said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. Few others can challenge the ZR1 convertible’s power and speed while offering the exhilaration of top-down motoring.
The performance and technology introduced on the Corvette ZR1 coupe carry over to the new ZR1 convertible. The strength of the Corvette’s aluminum chassis means the only structural changes in the convertible are accommodations for the folding top and repositioned seat belt mounts. The power top can be operated remotely or while driving up to 50 kph.
In fact, the curb weight difference between the ZR1 coupe and convertible is less than 27 kg, with most of the difference attributed to the folding top hardware.
The ZR1 convertible is a no-compromise supercar, said Corvette Executive Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter. Thanks to the strong structure, the suspension tuning between coupe and convertible models is identical, meaning the ZR1 convertible offers the same benchmark performance, including a top speed of over 320 kph.
