As the dawn rises on the 2021 model year Corvette, the anticipated Stingray R Package seems to be left in the shadows. All we’ve seen of it was a simple tweet that revealed the appearance package during the summer, which pays tribute to the pair of Corvette C8.R race cars that dominated the 2020 IMSA season. However, there’s been little else to go off of. Even the 2021 Corvette configurator is absent of the Stingray R package. Although, at least one of the graphics have now been made available via Chevrolet Accessories: the center-hood Jake graphic, in black.

The description of the 2021 Corvette Stingray R graphics hood insert is as follows, per Chevrolet:

  • Add a race-inspired appearance to your Corvette exterior
  • Features tone on tone Center Hood Stripe in Black with Jake logo and Corvette Racing Script
  • Includes two Stingray R decals for placement on sides of vehicle or ground effects
  • Includes template for recommended application locations

Despite not being entirely available on the configurator, the 2021 Corvette dealer order guide does mention a “Corvette Racing Themed Graphics Package with Jake and Stingray R logos,” as a Genuine Corvette Accessory. It carries the order code SB7.

While complete pricing for this new package is not immediately available, the Jake logo hood accessory carries a price of $495 USD, and is available for ordering now.

The MSRP and options for the 2021 Corvette have otherwise been made public. And while the base price has stayed flat, subtle to moderate price increases for popular content has taken place. Other changes from the 2020 model year came with the 2021 Corvette, such as a la carte magnetic ride suspension for the Z51 package, new colors for the interior and exterior, wireless Apple CarPlay and more. We expect more accessories and content to be announced as the 2021 model year Corvette progresses.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles.

Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
