The ZL1 convertible, much like the hard top before it, will come with all the goodies such as the 640hp 6.2L supercharged V8, magnetic suspension, and the full aggressive profile of its exterior. The ZL1 is notably known for its use of the ‘flow tie’, its grill having a cut-out Chevy bowtie logo that helps funnel more air into the motor. Power will be sent to the rear wheels through Chevrolet’s new 10-speed automatic or the standard 6-speed automatic transmission.

While Chevrolet has yet to disclose any details on added weight or structural differences, they say the convertible’s abilities ought to be “comparable” to that of the standard ZL1. The company adds that “only a few minor structural differences separates the coupe and the convertible models.”

The ZL1 Convertible will be made available later this year.
