First Ride: The C7 Corvette Convertible

I've been waiting to hear more about the new Stingray Convertible . What 's the story?Developed at the same time as the hard top, you would think that the convertible was unnecessary , since all ' Vettes now Targa - style removable roof panel . So you can get your fresh air and have a solid roof over your head when finished. But then topped version of software is running and makes all the sense in the world. There are several reasons for this.

 What?This naturally as a wide , unobstructed view of the outside. You can clearly hear the harsh exhaust note . Airflow with the roof down and windows up is actually better , less fuss , as deleted in the hardtop with the roof section . And with the roof down , the Roadster version looks much better than the hardtop .What about the lack of trunk space - but there must be some problems ?While there is an enormous amount of space back there , but the good news is that there is a constant size . The roof mechanism is walled off the boat , so you do not get a lot of luggage to hear a nasty graunch stallng roof mechanism , when you try to push the hood away. Not huge at 283 liters, but then show me a competitor with more. On the other hand , is not as expected to buy one of these to move , right?Do not have the car shakes a lot when you hit a bump ?Nope . Not this. Thanks in part to stiffer chassis waaay - is 57 percent stronger than the C6 version is far more rigid than the McLaren MP4-12C Spider for Chevrolet - and the optional magnetic ride, but essentially nothing positive car down the road . We ran through some of the worst roads we know and his flying carpet throughout intact.Keep up on the roof ...OK. It is an issue that the whole fabric 20 seconds, the fall or rise. It is totally the driver latchless nothing but hold the call button. You can peel or squirrel it away at any speed up to 30 mph. With the top down and windows closed , you sit deep enough in the car, in what kind of environment you want to create the controls are involved . With the roof on, it is very quiet, if not quieter than the hard-top car .How is the performance?Performing the same mechanics as the Z51 coupe and a weight of only 25 kg more , is exactly the same . 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph. We have already spoken of the race very well and there is very little difference in handling . Maybe a little less accurate if you are using very high-speed changes of direction in a less than perfect surface , but that's really it.So should I buy ?If you live in the U.S. convertible and want the best for your money, of course. No car made today that will give you more for less. If . In Europe , where the car has not yet been confirmed as part of the line-up, maybe less, to live as if the hardtop is anything to go by , after exchange rates and export taxes have done their worst , the Corvette Z51 will probably cost almost twice the U.S. label . At this price , we expect most people to make a Porsche in the garage.numbers6162 cc , 8cyl , RWD , 455bhp , 624 nm, 23mpg , CO2 n / a , 3.8secs 0-60 mph, 190 mph , 1524kgprice$ 58,000
