A true performance hardtop
The 2020 Chevrolet corvette C8 offers a first-ever production retractable hardtop. The top adds just 77 pounds to the weight of the vehicle and flows seamlessly into the body while maintaining Stingray’s impressive storage capabilities. Available in body-color or Carbon Flash, the two-piece hardtop can activate at speeds up to 30 mph. And performance stays high when the top goes down, making this the most track-capable Corvette convertible in history.
A new profile in power
The mid-engine configuration provides incredible visibility, responsiveness and driving feel. The new engine placement provides rear weight bias, meaning more power is directed to the rear wheels where it matters most. And with the windshield now over the front wheels, there’s improved downforce without the need for a front air dam.

Every detail is designed to provide a natural and immersive driving experience that’s tailored to you. Each button is exactly where it needs to be for comfortable, intuitive use. And with three seat combinations to choose from, there’s sure to be one that perfectly suits you.
