If you’ve dreamed of driving a 755-horse drop-top in orange, Chevrolet has a little something you might like. It’s the all-new ZR1 Corvette Convertible that made its global debut this week at the 2017 LA Auto Show.
It’s bound to get more than a few people excited since it’s 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 — both have a top speed of over 200 mph, so we’re talking supercar status whichever way you go.
The ZR1’s LT5 6.2L supercharged engine is rated at 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque. Drivers can opt for a seven-speed manual transmission or a ZR1-first paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission. Chevy says preliminary testing gives it a 0-60 mph time in under 3.0 seconds when equipped with the eight-speed automatic.
The convertible arrives next spring starting from $123,995. The coupe will sticker from $119,995 including destination charges.
You can check them out from Dec. 1-10 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
