2020 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Review

This is the brand spankin’ new Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. The mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray was engineered first and foremost as a convertible. The convertible maintains the tunnel-dominant structure and use of high-integrity die-cast parts found in the Stingray coupe.  Like the coupe, the Stingray convertible’s design was inspired by fighter jets. The tonneau cover features aerodynamically shaped nacelles influenced by the housing used for jet engines.  With a 6.2L V8 that delivers nearly 500 horsepower sent through an 8 speed automatic transmission, first ever (to Corvettes) mid-engine architecture a flurry of other exciting changes, the new C8 Corvette Convertible promises open air fun. This new car has a hard top convertible that only adds about 80 pounds to the curb weight of the car. Engineers tweaked the chassis for the convertible, with springs and dampers tuned specifically to provide nearly the same performance as the coupe.  The C8 convertible is powered by the next-generation 6.2L Small Block V-8 LT2 engine, the only naturally aspirated V8 in the segment. It will produce 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque when equipped with performance exhaust.  What do you think of the new Corvette Convertible?   Should Ferrari, Lamborghini or other supercar manufactures be nervous?
