"The Z06 Convertible is a world-class supercar in every sense," says Mark Reuss, Executive Vice President, Global Product Development. "Only a handful of convertibles in the world bring more than 600 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. Even fewer can match the advanced technologies, aerodynamic design, and visceral driving experience of the Z06 Convertible."
Reuss is right; to get as much power and performance as you'd get from the Corvette Z06 Convertible, you'd have to spring for something like the McLaren 650S we drove in Spain recently (with 641hp on tap, it goes for over $280,000). The Ferrari 458 Spider, Audi R8 Spider, Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet and Aston Martin Vanquish Volante all command similar prices, but offer less than 600hp. While Chevrolet has still yet to release official output and pricing information for the Z06, it promises to deliver “at least” 625hp and 635 pound-feet of torque, and pricing is expected to come in at around $100,000.
