If youíve dreamed of driving a 755-horse drop-top in orange, Chevrolet has a little something you might like. Itís the all-new ZR1 Corvette Convertible that made its global debut this week at the 2017 LA Auto Show.

Itís bound to get more than a few people excited since itís the first ZR1 drop-top since the original 1970 model-year ZR1. Drivers can operate the power top remotely or while driving at speeds up to 30 mph.

The convertible follows the recently announced 755-horse Coupe version ó both have a top speed of over 200 mph, so weíre talking supercar status whichever way you go.
