Chevrolet pulled the cloth off a new Corvette ZR1 at the sunny LA Auto show this week. This is the first ZR1 convertible since the original 1970 model-year ZR1. The new convertible ZR1 starts at $5K above the coupe with an opening price tag of about $124,000.

“The new Corvette ZR1 convertible is a supercar in all respects,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Few others can challenge the ZR1 convertible’s power and speed while offering the exhilaration of top-down motoring.”

The new lightweight convertible top adds less than 60 pounds and can be lowered and raised remotely and at speeds up to 30 MPH. As we recently reported, the Corvette ZR1 has a top speed of up to 212 MPH depending upon the aero package chosen and comes with a 755 hp V8 engine. GM plans to auction off the first ZR1 at a Barrett-Jackson event to benefit the veterans’ support group, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

This is the sound of the thing. 

it sounds like the C6 ZR1, but MUCH BEEFIER. and the $124K pricetag is steep, but then again, you ARE paying for the best engineering and performance GM has to offer.
