2019 Corvette ZR1 Blows Its Top Off With Convertible Version 17

The fastest and most powerful version of the Corvette, the ZR1, grabbed headlines when it was unveiled earlier this week in Dubai.

However, Chevrolet is already planning a second version of the menacing supercar, as the images posted by Redditor Coonark00 show.

The photos reveal a three-car convoy seen in Florida a few days ago, and one of them is a convertible, with camouflage wrapped around its front and rear ends, a folding soft top, and a low wing.

“I fish down in the Florida Everglades, and I see these ZR1s testing fairly regularly. They come cruising by me, and often give me a nice throttle blip if I wave. They sound awesome”, said the man who posted the images online.

With Chevrolet bringing out a Corvette ZR1 Convertible, the move will mark yet another important modification for the C7 ZR1, compared to its predecessors, besides the targa roof with removable panels.

Naturally, the Convertible ZR1 will use the same 755hp 6.2-liter supercharged V8 of the Coupe, which is so good that Chevy believes it can lap the Nurburgring in less than 7 minutes.

2019 Corvette ZR1 Surfaces Early, Could Have 750 HP 8

The first purported pictures of the Corvette ZR1 have surfaced online ahead of its debut on November 12th.

Posted by Corvette Blogger, the images were reportedly taken from Car and Driver and reveal the model will be equipped with an aerodynamic body kit which that includes a carbon fiber front splitter, air intake ducting, and a massive rear wing. We can also see a ventilated carbon fiber hood, a carbon fiber roof, and lightweight alloy wheels.

The rest of the photos don’t reveal much but they show the cabin will have an Alcantara-wrapped shifter and a flat-bottom steering wheel with carbon fiber trim. There also appears to be a carbon fiber engine cover and a glimpse of the engine itself.

The report says the car’s LT5 V8 engine will be rated at 750 hp (559 kW) and 680 lb-ft (920 Nm) of torque. This is substantially more than the Corvette Z06 which has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 650 hp (484 kW) and 650 lb-ft (880 Nm) of torque. Thanks to the extra power, the model will reportedly be able to hit a top speed in excess of 210 mph (337 km/h).

Pricing is expected to start at around $120,000 which would be almost $40,000 more than the Z06.
