The C8 already looks like no Corvette before out of the factory, thanks to the mid-engined configuration. But as more and more are pumped out of the factories, and people get used to the design, owners are already looking for ways to make their’s stand out. And this psychedelic wrapped C8 Corvette certainly does, owned by one Rick Dyer and it’s a rolling music festival.
The Corvette appears to be a Z51 package car with silver wheels and a tan interior with GT2 seats. The original color looks like Shadow Gray Metallic based on the exposed A-pillar, although it’s hard to be sure. The design is mainly comprised of swirling pink, blue, yellow and black abstract shapes, giving it a psychedelic look reminiscent of the 1960s.
The post itself doesn’t give too much information about the design or inspiration behind it, but the comments give us a little bit more. Dyer, a YouTuber, said the wrap company designed the print after he told them to “make it crazy.”
Those comments have also been rather polarizing, as you might expect. Some people love it and admire the bold design. Others say they respect the originality and each owner can do what they want. Then there’s the group of keyboard warriors vehemently against the car, saying it’s hideous and Chevy should take the car away from him. Dyers comments indicate he actually has two C8 Corvettes, so he is lucky enough to choose whether he wants to take a presumably stock car out for a drive, or attract extra attention with the psychedelic one.
Whatever you think of this C8 Corvette wrap, it’s certainly a bold look that no one else will likely have. Still, it’s hardly the last personalized Stingray we will see as time goes on. From wraps to widebody kits, aftermarket (visual) customization is only beginning for C8.
