Besides being the first Chevy Corvette to feature a mid-engine layout and dual-clutch transmission, the new 2020 Corvette convertible is the first to boast a folding hardtop.

Up until now, all Corvette convertibles exclusively used soft-top designs.

The 2020 Corvette moves to a hardtop for the first time, bringing benefits such as a quieter cabin, better security and cleaner styling.

A body-colored roof comes standard on all 2020 Corvette convertibles, though Chevy is letting customers spec a Carbon Flash-painted top for a two-tone appearance.

The composite hardtop, which can be operated at speeds of up to 30 mph, takes 16 seconds to go down thanks to six electric motors.
