Out of the gate, the C8 Corvette Stingray struggled to meet the excessive demand of its carbon fiber accessories. As we saw for the 2020 model year, the Corvette’s carbon fiber and side skirt package quickly vanished from the order books, while the high-wing spoiler quickly followed. Supply issues carried into the 2021 model year, with the elimination of the visible carbon fiber grille insert. Now, heading into year three, the 2022 Corvette Stingray struggles with enough microchips to fill orders, with executive chief engineer Tadge Jeuchter previously telling us that GM could build “triple” the amount of Corvettes if they simply had all the components to do so.
However, for the 2022 Corvette, key accessories are all present and accounted for, along with a new one. These popular add-ons include the carbon fiber ground effects, with new Stingray R branding, the high wing spoiler, and a new visible carbon fiber exterior kit for the C8 Corvette Stingray. These upgrades were on display at the Chevrolet Performance booth during the 2021 SEMA Show, along with pricing on most items.
2022 Corvette Stingray With Carbon Fiber Accessories
The 2022 Corvette Stingray on display at the 2021 SEMA Show debuted the visible carbon fiber exterior kit, as well as a Borla exhaust kit as an official accessory, finished with carbon fiber tips. This Stingray-specific accessory swaps out the black side intake vents and door handle decal for exposed carbon fiber that will match the rest of the add-ons made of the same material. This includes the ground effects kit, grille inserts, mirror caps, and roof bow. Here’s a pricing breakdown, along with other notable add-ons, of the accessories:
- Ground effects kit with visible carbon fiber: $4,695 USD
- Visible carbon fiber front grille inserts: $1,995 USD
- Under splitter protection by Scrape Armor: $549.95 USD
- Stingray R Graphics Package: $495 USD
- Mirror caps in visible carbon fiber: $1,195 USD
- Visible Carbon Fiber Roof Bow With Arctic White Trim: $2,995
- Visible Carbon Fiber Exterior Kit: “Available Q4 2021”.

All of these carbon fiber accessories and the graphics package are available on Chevy’s accessories website. Like every other Chevrolet Performance Accessory, they can be dealer installed, or picked up for a DIY project. For some extra carbon fiber flare, there are these Stingray carbon fiber badges from Speedkore and RSC tuning.
