Overview of the Corvette Convertible & Grand Sport Convertible

Corvette Convertible Maryland

The All-New 2013 Corvette Convertible. Visit our online Corvette Convertible inventory today.

190 mph on the track, 26MPG on the Highway


Corvette convertible is inspired by the speed and force echoing from the world’s most legendary racetracks, while remaining road ready. Its hydroformed steel structure gives Corvette its iconic shape and strength. It stabilizes the convertible so completely that no additional support is necessary, so relax and enjoy all of the performance Corvette has to offer. The standard 6.2-liter LS3 all-aluminum small block V8 engine powering the convertible produces 430 horsepower and 424 lb.-ft. of torque (436 horsepower and 428 lb.-ft. of torque with available dual-mode exhaust). And with its favorable power-to-weight ratio, Corvette convertible performs like a thoroughbred, with a 0 to 60 time of 4.2 seconds on the test track.


 Zero to top down in 18 seconds


Drop the top in a Corvette convertible and completely unleash the driving experience. Corvette defines freedom among luxury sports cars with state-of-the-art technology and sleek, modern style. For 60 years, Corvette has elevated the standard of excellence among sports cars and earned its position as an icon. When the top is down in a Corvette convertible, there’s nothing separating you from the open air and natural light. The world is your interior in the mere 18 seconds it takes for the convertible’s roof to drop and stow away with the available power top — all without ever leaving the driver seat. When the world is your track, you shouldn’t have to get out of your seat to drop the top. Get even closer to your Corvette experience than ever.

Interior Purposeful Design


The Corvette convertible interior has been refined for greater driving support and comfort. The seat design includes larger bolsters on the seatback and cushion areas for increased support, especially in high-performance driving, but greatly welcomed for day-to-day driving. Optional microfiber seat inserts complement the new design even further, as does the revised steering wheel featuring model-specific badges, streamlined switch trim, wrapped spokes, better hand placement and thumb grips. Driving a Corvette convertible is an experience for every one of your senses. Every interaction should remind you that you’re in a Corvette and it’s not like anything else.

Room for two golf bags

A two seat convertible doesn't have to compromise on luggage space. The Corvette convertible offers a fully enclosed truck with plenty of space, even with the top down.

Safety before, during and, thanks to OnStar, after a collision


With features such as frontal and side impact air bags, you can count on Corvette to be protective  any collision. But what is really comforting about Corvette is its ability to help you avoid collisions in the first place. Technology like Active Handling and 4 wheel antilock brakes help you stay on the road and in control. And should the unthinkable ever occur, Corvette also comes equipped with OnStar Automatic Crash Response standard for the first year. Built in sensors can automatically alert an Advisor, who is immediately connected into your vehicle and can request emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location – even if you’re unable to respond.

XM, CD, MP3, Navigation and More


It’s Hard to imagine anything that could make driving a Corvette better. But now you can checkout over 170 digital channels with three trial months of XM Radio standard on every Corvette, or a one year subscription on select models. Also, choose from several audio system options, including a Bose seven speaker sound system, depending on model. Select models even offer a navigation system that provides information on screen, verbally or via the Head Up Display to help you keep your eyes on the road

Performance without thirst


What do the numbers 26, 1 and .95 have in common? They all pertain to the New Grand Sport coupe and convertible. The Grand Sport shows the Race bred performance and sedan like fuel economy are not mutually exclusive. The numbers tell the story; a test track 0 to 60 time of 3.95 seconds; 1g of lateral acceleration capability o the skidpad; and an EPA estimated 26 MPG highway – with no gas guzzler tax.

Enduring design
