The first official images of Chevrolet's new Corvette Stingray Convertible have surfaced online, just hours out from its Geneva Motor Show unveiling.

Released as a revealing teaser in the lead-up to its official debut, these new images show the topless 'Vette with its soft-top roof in place, and stowed.

Details for the new convertible are still to be released, but the teaser images do reveal a couple of telling tricks: a small rear spoiler and larger brakes, pointing to the new Z51 performance package revealed with the Coupe.

For now, Chevrolet has said only that the the new convertible will deliver "the same balance of technology, design and performance" offered by its hardtop twin.

"Every Corvette is designed at the outset as an open car," Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer said.

"The new Stingray is no different, with the coupe and convertible designed to excel in any situation – be it your daily commute, a drive across the continent, or charging through twisting backroads."

Expect power to come from the same 6.1 litre LT1 V8 engine powering the coupe, producing around 335kW and 610Nm of torque.

In hardtop form, the Stingray belts to 100km/h in "under" 4.0 seconds, slipping below the 4.2 time of the outgoing model.
