Geneva Live – Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible sheds its veil

Kaustubh

Kaustubh Shinde,

They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don’t find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.

Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

After revealing the Corvette at the Detroit Motor Show, Chevrolet has chopped its roof off for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

It will sit alongside the Stingray and will feature a folding canvas hood which is tucked behind the passengers’ heads or some wind in your hair motoring.

The exterior styling looks identical to the hardtop with the same ‘gills’ behind the front wheel, gaping grille with a single chrome bar and large vent in the bonnet.
