As the first year of sales for the C8 Corvette draws closer to the end, fans and buyers alike can look forward to what we hope is a better 2021 model year. Though of course we suspect that those reservation holders whose build slots weren’t able to be filled in 2020 are the most excited about the production turn over. Chevrolet has just released the 2021 Corvette Stingray visualizer, giving us all our first chance to spec out the second-year mid-engined sports car.
Unlike a full configurator tool that allows buyers to get an idea of how much their dream car will cost, a visualizer focuses more on letting buyers spec the appearance of their car. While General Motors hasn’t come forward with any new pricing details, leaks have already suggested that some popular options will carry a higher MSRP for 2021. The Z51 Performance Pack for instance is expected to cost an additional $995, totaling in at $5,995.
Perhaps the most exciting part of the new visualizer is the fact that the convertible model has officially joined the lineup. A drop-top Vette may be a stereotype, but there’s a good reason to be excited about this new one. Head over to the visualizer and watch the folding metal roof do its dance, because we promise you’ve never seen a Corvette do something like that.
The 2021 C8 Corvette has to be the most customizable variant of the sports car we’ve ever seen. There are two body styles, 12 exterior paint colors, three different roof treatments for each body style, and 32 different exterior accent choices. Included in this massive list are the stripe packages that were teased a few months back. As if that wasn’t enough, GM has also given you six wheel options, four brake caliper colors, and 14 different interior color options on the 3LT trim.
That is really all to say that you can tailor the 2021 Corvette Stingray to your own liking. We’ve specced out this Rapid Blue Z51 Convertible, giving it a bit of the Gulf-inspired look that GM teased us with. How would you spec yours?
