LA Auto Show: 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Convertible Starts At $123,995

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Convertible, the first ZR1 drop-top since the original 1970 model-year ZR1, is powered by a 755 horsepower LT5 6.2L supercharged engine mated to a choice of a seven-speed manual transmission or a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission delivering a 0-60 mph in under 3.0 seconds and quarter mile in the high 10-second range when the engine is equipped with the eight-speed automatic. The Corvette ZR1’s aero package is central to the coupe’s 212-mph top speed. It features Stealth, Tour, Sport and Track modes and sound levels. An adjustable High Wing is part of the new $2,995 ZTK Performance Package. Four new radiators also help manage cooling in the ZR1, which features 13 radiators in all, including circuits for engine oil, transmission and differential cooling. On sale next spring alongside the Corvette ZR1 coupe, the ZR1 coupe will carry a suggested retail price of $119,995, while the ZR1 convertible will start at $123,995 (prices include destination charge, but exclude tax, title and other dealer fees).
