Just a few hours after the Los Angeles Auto Show opens its doors to the general public, General Motors continues to put all the meat on the spit and will ruffle us (literally) by unveiling a radical convertible: the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Convertible .

This beast in the open takes the base of the most radical Corvette that debuted a few weeks ago and undresses above to leave an attractive, clean and extremely aggressive silhouette that will delight the most burned looking for both circuit and ride record breaking for any idyllic coast road.

On a mechanical level we find an exact copy of what we saw in the Corvette ZR1 with coupe body, a sport of pure American muscle equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V5 LT5 engine that spits out 755 horsepower and a spectacular 969 Nm of torque engine on its huge rear rollers.

Associating this engine to a seven-speed manual gearbox or eight-speed automatic this very high-flying convertible gets performance figures of 0-100 km / h below 3 seconds and snacks the quarter mile in about 10 seconds and a maximum speed greater than 320 km / h .

In addition to suppressing the upper part of the body , some necessary changes have been made to the windshield to reinforce its structure, as well as the mandatory retractable canvas roof and special behind-the-seat coverage with small integrated roll-over bows.

Regarding the weight, Chevrolet has not yet confirmed the exact figure but talks about only 27 kg heavier than the full body model. That is, it could be around 1,625 kg on the scale .

And basically that's the only difference that we can find between both models, because the whole train is modeled on the coupé version, with the same suspension scheme. You can also equip the same ZTK Performance Package that includes the large rear spoiler, the front splitter , Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and Magnetic Ride suspensions.

This car is apart from its exceptional performance and its aggressive aesthetics the return of a model so far unique . The Corvette ZR1 Convertible of this last generation is the second of its lineage after the original model of 1970.
