2019 Corvette ZR1 Convertible
Movie stars, sunshine and beaches are probably the first things that come to mind when you visit Los Angeles. Maybe even that “Little Deuce Coupe” of Beach Boys fame. Yes, LA is the land of the automobile, top down cruising and spiritual home of highway gridlock. Of course it is also home to the LA Auto Show where you'll feast your eyes on some beautiful cars, most especially the 2019 Corvette ZR1 convertible which made its global debut at a movie studio. I wouldn’t expect anything else
I caught up with two of the main designers of the ZR1 who gave me insights on some of the challenges of creating the fastest Corvette to date.
