[PICS] The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Goes Topless

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Goes Topless

I guess the new Convertible Corvette Grand Sport is just too tame for some folks.

Here is a Velocity Yellow Corvette ZR1 that has gone topless. The pics were posted to Twitter, but I have no background info on the car or the conversion process. Obviously, the 638-hp Chevy supercar was on display at a car show somewhere. If you have any details, please share!

UPDATE

These pics date back to an August 8th car show in the Walmart parking lot in Harleysville, PA. Apparently, the owner bought the Corvette ZR1 and a yellow Corvette convertible donor car at the same time. He had a shop do the conversion which cut off the carbon fiber roof and then used parts off the convertible to complete the conversion.

There is no word on whether or not the frame was strengthened. As our commenters have pointed out, the aluminum frame wasn’t designed for a convertible body so he can expect some body flex. Most likely, this Corvette was built for show and will never see the track.

I’ve got to give the owner credit. Only one like it (for now)!
