Product Overview

Chevrolet Corvette C8 Convertible is a mid-size convertible sports car in production from 2020. It is available with a range of V8 engines that displaced 5.5 to 6.2 liters.
Whereas the standard C8 Corvette is a targa top, the Convertible has a conventional folding hard top that offers more exposure to the environments while motoring. This classic top down experience is treasured by many but not desired by those who pursue the ultimate performance. In either way, the fact that the car has a hard top when most of hardtop convertibles of the past have been succeeded by soft tops is a win for GM.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (C8) comes with double-wishbone suspensions at all four corners. This provides the good cornering performance and durability, though multi-link tends to be more tunable.

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The first UK cars will be specified in to two trim levels; 2LT and 3LT. You can then add numerous options to improve the dynamics – such Chevrolet's excellent Magnetic Ride adaptive suspension for £1,920 – or to enhance the styling and interior spec. All UK Corvettes also get the ‘Z51 Performance Package', which includes beefier-than-normal Brembo brakes, a limited-slip differential and a sports exhaust system.
