The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gets a hardtop option for the first time in the model’s history. Set to go on sale in the second quarter of 2020, the Stingray hardtop convertible comprises two pieces that are powered by six electric motors, letting it fully retract in just 16 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph.
The hardtop improves the Stingray’s performance and security when the top is up, thanks to its hard shell with improved aerodynamics. Chevy has designed the Stingray hardtop convertible with special springs and dampers tuned to create drag that is exactly the same as the Corvette Stingray Coupe.
Both the coupe and the hardtop convertible versions of the Stingray are equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that puts out 495 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mounted to an eight-speed automatic transmission with a detachable dual clutch, so drivers can enjoy both effortless gear shifting and having more control over their ride.
The new Corvette Stingray is also the first-ever Corvette with a mid-engine configuration here the engine is placed in the middle of the body underneath the rear seat, rather than at the front or back. This configuration allows for more cargo space and more even weight distribution.
