The Most Expensive Option Is The $5,000 Z51 Package

C8 Corvette
The Carbon Fiber Appearance Package is still a no-show.

As you can imagine, it’s not hard to increase from the base MSRP of the 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray by over 30 percent, thanks to incredibly detailed levels of personalization through various options and accessories. You can choose between six seatbelt colors, for instance, each of them adding $395 to the bottom line. Or if you want fender stripes and full body-length racing stripes? That can happen, too.

If you want to break the bank on a 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray and send things into the six-figure range, you first have to select the 3LT trim level ($70,850), and you then have to have an insatiable appetite for carbon fiber. While the $5,000 Z51 Package is the most expensive option announced for the C8 Corvette, the flamboyant carbon fiber ground effects kit isn’t far behind, at $4,850. Just behind that is the $3,495 carbon fiber dual roof package. Those three options alone add over $13,000 to the bottom line. But more indulgence is needed to turn the $59,995 C8 Corvette into a $105,480 C8 Corvette. Add another $7,500 to that for the C8 Corvette Convertible, but the configurator for that apparently hasn’t launched yet.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

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. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. 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.
