Hello Corvette enthusiasts, just watched Rick Conti's video on what people are ordering and I thought it would be cool to hear what people are building/ like. Share with us what you have built and ordered and maybe we will all gain some insight on what is the most common C8's that will be finding new roads this summer :canada:


To start things off I have my Ceramic Matrix build with a 2/3 TPW. I actually have not ordered it with the LPO black trident rims and high wing from the factory for a couple of reasons.
1, The LPO Black Trident rims come with the OEM standard rims as transport and cost $3600!! Being a cost effective buyer I bought the trident spokes in spectra grey for half the price and will get my friends at Alloy Wheel Specialist to powder-coat them a nice black.
2. I have built a relationship with ACS composites over the years and I will be installing their complete Areo package on my model once it arrives. I am a bit nervous as they have not been able to release their C8 products until GM start delivering production models.

I spent a lot of time contemplating the colour and I went with Ceramic in the end. I felt that this generation shows better in lighter colours. With it being such a large jagged exotic vehicle the lighter colours help show off some of the beautiful lines in the bodywork. Arctic White was the most popular colour in the C7 so I knew that would be a saturated model for resale. Resale red was already so popular that they put it on constraint a few weeks ago. Rapid blue and Velocity yellow did not promote the lifestyle I portray so I landed with CMG in the end. I am excited to hear about what everyone likes as eventually I will be having to build retail stock units after all my orders have been placed and this is one of my favourite things to do.

Mine is basic. Rapid blue 1LT coupe with performance exhaust, black rims, light grey seats and blue seatbelts. I owned three C7’s one of which was a fully loaded premiere edition. All my previous C7’s had Z51 and magnetic ride. I will never track the car so the Z51 package for me is pointless. I will miss the heads up display though as I really liked that. Also I may miss the magnetic ride but who knows. I am next up at my dealership for an allocation and am willing to change my configuration in order to get one. I would change colour to Sebring Orange and perhaps even yellow. I am 53 years old and my previous C7’s were black, laguna blue and crystal red.

There will be plenty of time if you are getting a 2020 model to trade yours in and do well with it. The price increases will make your MY a bargain. Make sure you build your vette if you are going to get rid of it in a universal build. For example no personalised plaque

I am a huge fan of the Rapid Blue and I love the blue seat belts however i am a bit pissed that you cant get blue calipers. I have been working on this build for a client and I feel that it would be nice with a set of them on it

I totally agree, I am pretty sure next winter once she's parked I will be taking them off for a blue powdercoat.

Thanks. I have seen a C7 with a similar combination of reds and they all seem to play well together. Hope to be able to share real life pictures
later this year.

I will buy your high wing off of you if you decide not to take it, depending on where you live it may be something we can meet to do. I love that you decided to do the seat colour overide. I like that you stuck to a theme and played it out to the top no matter the cost. this is without a doubt going to be one of the top examples for the first MY. I wish i had the balls to drive a colour like that

2020 C8 Z51 Mag ride
Province

Torch red black , black interior, Z51 mag ride basically the brochure version. That's it. I want the best performing C8 available and don't need to add any more cost. I hope to get nearly all I paid back on trade for the Z06 when it arrives. Should make a good trade in value given the rumors of big price increases for 2021 C8 in Canada . I may copy Morgan and paint the wheels black also.

1LT Sebring Orange, sky cool grey seats, orange seat belts, performance exhaust and yellow calipers. Will be ordering monoblock forged black concave wheels and likely doing a custom high wing with a full aero kit.

Saw this video and instantly fell in love with orange paint, yellow calipers and black rims (rims in this video don't look good at all though)

That's a beautiful combo! I basically planned on that same car, but I chickened out of it because I couldn't see a proper sample of that colour. I felt like that about the Ceramic Grey as well...…...
