Stingray-Logo Center Caps
A subtle, but awesome, addition to this special edition. Just hope the tire slingers don’t lose them when you need a new pair of shoes on your Vette.
A sweet set of "Stingray" sill plate greet you as you enter the C7.
Matching luggage is an odd addition, but at least it’s a high-quality set of travel gear.
The new Stingray Convertible made its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, a few weeks after the coupe version was unveiled in Detroit. The model features an exterior design similar to the coupe, with the only exception being of course its three-ply fabric top that opens and closes at speeds up to 30 mph.
The Corvette Stingray Convertible is powered by a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque.
The Z51 package adds some really sweet suspension components, plus a new braking system that includes a set of Brembo units with rotors measuring 12.6 inches up front and 13.3 inches on the rear.
