NO, sorry man. Only comes in a coupe. In fact, can you even get a targa top on it, I don't think you can

Are you sure you gave the right link because the vette in that video is definitely not a convertible. Sorry, i'm tired and may have lost my mind.That guy is definitely the worst corvette driver I have ever seen though.

Just making sure the targa top is the removable panel in the roof, right? So its essentially a 'vert with a roll bar?

Anyway, I'm pretty sure that the Z06 is only coupe because of the need to increase rigidity and reduce weight.

It doesn't quite count when its a 700 hp customized car done by an aftermarket company.

National Geographic had a cool show on about the Corvette Z06. It uses a completely different space frame made by Dana, lighter and stonger than the regular Vettes hence no factory convertible Z06. Check this out.

Your right CHEVY doesnt make a z06 convertible. To much flex. You can buy a widebody kit to convert one.

Sorry to inform you but you are 100% mistaken. There is NO SUCH THING as a Z06 Convertible. What you are seeing is corvette convertibles that have had the wide-body Z06 parts put on, basically fenders and nose that has the opening in front of the hood. As a Z06 owner I am ok with other corvette owners doing that, but badging them as Z06's is plain wrong and is counterfeiting IMHO.

Z51 is a suspension upgrade that is available on standard corvettes, not available on the Z06. Corvette owners that have the Z51 package have taken enough pride in that option to start cadging and referring to their cars as Z51 Corvettes.

Anyone who tells you they have a convertible Z06, unless they chopped the top off themselves is a liar and is full of ....well you know what.

Regarding the video, it did not look like a convertible but had some of the key features of a Z06, like the opening in front of the hood and wide body fenders. If that was a Z06, the driver must have been really terrible, not trying or sleeping. No times were listed, and if the 2 cars were stock, there is no way that Mustang would beat it.
