Chevrolet has revealed the 2014 Corvette Stingray convertible for the American market today at the New York Auto show. It features a fully-electronic top that can be lowered using a button on the key fob. The top can be folded or released when the car is in motion, for up to 50kph.

GM says the convertible and regular model were developed together and there’s no drop in performance, technology or design.

The performance and technology content have been transferred from the coupe to the convertible. The changes in the structure of the car is limited to the folding roof and the repositioning of the seat belt mounts. Compared to the outgoing model’s steel structure, the convertible has a 57% stiffer and 45 kg lighter aluminium frame.
