Read more about the Convertible Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Spied for the First Time at AutoGuide.com.General Motors did the unthinkable with the C7 Corvette Z06 by making the supercharged Stingray available with both an automatic and a droptop. As it gears up for the arrival of the ZR1, it appears GM may now commit blasphemy.
Spy photographers have snapped photos of a convertible C7 ZR1 prototype testing at GM’s Proving Grounds. This camouflaged car shares all the basics already displayed by recent ZR1 mules – aggressive aero work, a seemingly taller power dome, and even the same double five-spoke wheels – except this time, it ditches the tin top in favor of something a little more comfortable.
If and when the ZR1 droptop comes to market, it will be GM’s most premium open-air-oh-no-my-hair offering, topping both the Z06 and Camaro ZL1 ragtops in price, prestige and performance.
