You won't find another convertible in the world with the same power and presence as the 2013 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible. Decades of research and refinement has gone into building the most awe-inspiring top-down sports car both on and off the track.
Sometimes you feel like you're settling for less when opting for a convertible. Other convertibles sacrifice horsepower to make up for a lack of stability. Not this beast. The Grand Sport Convertible is every bit as quick and ferocious as its hard-top brother, so use that race track heritage to your advantage while experience the open road like never before.

With the available power convertible top, you can blow the roof off (figuratively, of course) in 18 seconds while staying comfortably behind the wheel. The signature front wheel air vents and wide stance let you know immediately that it's a descendant of the Grand Sport racing heritage. You can opt for the black Grand Sport fender badging instead of the standard chrome, if you're out for an even daker look.
Available dual-mode exhaust gives your Convertible an extra 6 horsepower kick, and the available chrome wheels put the finishing touches on an already smoking hot exterior. The 60th Anniversary Package is also available on all 2013 Corvette Grand Sport Convertibles, which includes an Arctic White paint job and available exterior striping and graphics.
