Introducing the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible

Here is the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible. It’s one of the most capable drop-tops on the market and Chevy says it the most powerful convertible ever produced by the company.

Chevrolet planned to reveal it on Monday at the New York International Auto Show but apparently images of any new Corvette model are too hot to handle and as such, they were leaked earlier today.

The two biggest sellers of collector Corvettes in the country, Mecum and Barrett-Jackson will be holding their second important collector auctions of 2014. The reason these auctions are important is because after some mixed and difficult to interpret first quarter Corvette auction results, we should get a better read on the Corvette collector market and where it is headed for this year.
