One of a pair of right- and left-coast-themed concepts, the Corvette Stingray Convertible Atlantic pictured above wears a unique Blade Silver paint scheme and as its name suggests represents the Atlantic Ocean side of the country. It features a new front splitter, rocker extensions and a rear lower diffuser, along with custom headlight surrounds and hood accents.
Inside, the Corvette Stingray Convertible Atlantic features suede trim, a wind deflector mounted behind the seats, custom floor mats, an embroidered center armrest with the Stingray logo, and door sill plates. The concept also comes with its own luggage set.

Because it’s got the Z51 package, the car’s 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 features a dry-sump oiling system, the cooling and brake systems are enhanced and the transaxle features an electronic limited-slip differential. Even the gearing in the seven-speed manual transmission is unique.

Not only does it feature a custom paint job and endurance racer-style yellow-tinted headlights, it also comes with a carbon fiber rear wing, a vented hood, a functional body kit, a custom grille and front tow hook, racing harnesses in the cabin, and a flat-bottom steering wheel.
No changes have been made to the powertrains of these concepts, which isn’t a problem since the cars offer up a minimum of 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque straight out of the box.
