The 2022 Corvette Stingray has been made official, highlighted by the IMSA GTLM Championship Edition. Among the other changes include new colors, and price hikes pretty much across the board. However, today, we’d like to draw your attention to the many new carbon fiber accessories and accents that customers can order. They certainly aren’t cheap, but considering the wild demand for the C8 Corvette, it’s unlikely that Chevrolet will have a hard time selling any of them.
2022 Corvette Stingray: New Features Detailed
Below are all of the new carbon fiber options and accessories for the 2022 Corvette Stingray family, as well as official pricing, per Corvette Action Center:
- Carbon Fiber Door Intake: $3,150 (LPO code RYQ, available on all trims)
- Black ground effects: $715 (LPO code 5V7, available on all trims)
- Carbon Fiber Ground Effects: $3,445 (LPO code 5W8, available on 3LT coupe and convertible)
- Visible Carbon Fiber Ground Effects: $4,445 (LPO code 5VM, available on 3LT coupe and convertible)
- Visible Carbon Fiber High Clearance Rear Wing: $6,495 (LPO code 5V5, available on all trims)
- Low Clearance Spoiler: $595 (RPO code TVS, available on all trims, requires Z51 package, and ZF1 front splitter delete). The spoiler can be ordered in Carbon Flash Metallic if RPO code ZYC ($100) and the Z51 package ($6,345) is ordered, according to MidEngineCorvetteForum. ZYC consists of Carbon Flash Metallic-painted outside mirrors, and includes Carbon Flash Metallic-painted outside mirrors (DRG).
Also exclusive for the 2022 Corvette is the first-ever IMSA GTLM Championship Edition (RPO code ZCR). The $6,595 package is limited to just 1,000 units, the collectable C8 packages unique looks reminiscent of the Corvette Racing C8.R GTLM race cars they celebrate. This package bundles much of the carbon fiber goodies outlined above, along with a unique set of wheels. Also included in the package is a unique plaque for customers to hang on their wall. The 2022 model year also adds the Caffeine, Hypersonic Gray, and Amplify Orange colors. 2022 Corvette production is said to commence early September, 2021.
These changes will have to hold Corvette customers over until the big, big debut of the 2023 Corvette Z06 supercar; a DOHC V8-powered screamer with a center-exit exhaust that has all the potential of setting road course lap records across the country, thanks to massive Michelin tires, and absurd aerodynamics.
