It Just Comes At A Significant Premium

C8 Corvette Stingray Center Mounted Exhaust

The center-mounted exhaust for the C8 Corvette Z06 is incredibly slick looking. While that style exhaust is only available for that trim in the US and Middle Eastern markets, that doesn’t mean other Corvettes can’t have the fantastic feature. Aftermarket companies are already cranking out their own center exhaust systems, so C8 Corvette Stingray owners can also have the incredible look.

The C8 Corvette Stingray has an outboard exhaust setup, breaking a design tradition that was established with the fifth-generation Corvette in the 1990s. And if you want a center-exit system from the factory, you’re gonna have to wait for the 670 horsepower Z06. Or, Callaway Cars offers its 35th Anniversary Edition Corvette with a center-exit D-exhaust that stands out from the ordinary.

However, for a price of $2,988 excluding options, Aerolarri has a center-mounted exhaust system that can be specified with various tip finishes for $499. There are also carbon-fiber exhaust tips available, which will cost $999, and for $480, customers can opt to have race mufflers.

But, if you live in the European Union and the UK, a different company providing a center-mounted exhaust system is at your disposal. Courtesy of NAP Sportauspuff, for 7,695 euros or $8,100 USD currently, customers can have a fully legal center exhaust system for the C8 Corvette Stingrays. While that is a bit pricey, especially compared to Aerolarri, NAP Sportauspuff sweetens the deal with two finishes for the rear valance panel, black ceramic coating for the mufflers, and polished stainless steel or black ceramic-coated finishers.

Potential customers can rest easy as the NAP center-mounted system has EC and ABE approval, meaning it’s 100% legal in the EU. The exhaust system is made from stainless steel and features two electronically-controlled exhaust valves that open and close in just milliseconds. However, while C8 Corvette Stingray owners in Europe can get a center-mounted exhaust system, they will still get hit with the reduction in power that comes with all exported Corvettes due to gasoline particulate filters that restrict the outbound airflow of the car’s 6.2L LT2 V8 engine.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
