Chevrolet engineers have worked very hard on the car’s chassis so now they can claim the Camaro Convertible is as rigid as the coupe version and has better torsional stiffness than BMW 3-Series convertible. That’s a big leap for Chevy, after all making a convertible that actually handles well is a hard trick to pull.

As for the roof itself, according to GM it’s a well-tailored fabric top which has only one single latch, acoustical headliner for quietness, and a glass rear window with defogger. It goes up and down in 20 seconds.
