Check out this video from I Sell Corvettes YouTuber and Chevy salesperson as he provides the latest C8 Corvette news about Chevy dealers getting their 2022 C8 Corvette allocations.

We received the July Cycle 2 consensus this morning letting us know how many Corvettes we can order next week for our first 2022 C8 models. I created some confusion it seems on the forum so I wanted to give my take on why I believe my expectations vs what I received differed from other larger dealers.
Check out this video from YouTuber Brink of Speed where he races his 2020 C8 Corvette vs a 2022 BMW M8 Competition.
The BMW M8 Competition goes 10.7 1/4 mile and 2.5 0 to 60 and the C8 Corvette is lucky to run a low 11 quarter mile but will it take it off the line?

2020 C8 Corvette vs 2022 M8 Competition! WILL BMW BEAT CHEVY? Ladies and gentlemen, this was a blast to film. My 2020 C8 vs a brand new 2022 M8 Competition. This M8, even though it is a heavy car, will definitely surprise you. You will get to see if my 495hp 3600lb Chevy, beat a 617hp 4400lb BMW?
In this luxury coupe comparison, Carlos Lago from Edmunds takes an in-depth look at two popular sports cars, the Chevy Corvette C8 and BMW M4 Competition. You might not think these two sport coupes would have much in common, but the Corvette and M4 share many similarities. Both are rear-wheel-drive two-door coupes that have around 500 horsepower. They have similar prices, and both are insanely fun to drive. Which one is the better choice? We answer that question and more in this exciting sports car comparison of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2021 BMW M4 Competition. With the eighth-generation Corvette (or C8), Chevrolet moved away from the classic front-engine layout to a new mid-engine layout. The change dramatically improves the driving experience. The 2020 Corvette C8, with a 6.2-liter V8 and dual-clutch automatic transmission, glides effortlessly around the track. The steering and handling are such that the driver has the utmost confidence to push this Chevy sports car to its limits. Speed has always been a calling card of the Corvette, and the 2020 model doesn’t disappoint — it’s really fast. Add all these factors up, and it’s easy to see why the Chevrolet Corvette C8 is consistently ranked as one of the best sports cars. The BMW M4 Competition is a worthy opponent for the Corvette. Redesigned for 2021, the M4 is faster and more powerful than the previous generation. A turbocharged 503-horsepower six-cylinder engine and improved suspension work together to put all that power to the road. The M4 is based on the BMW M3 sedan, so it is a little longer and taller than the Corvette. The 2021 M4 also has a back seat, so there’s more interior space in BMW’s sports car. Fun, fast and powerful, the 2021 BMW M4 Competition is a force on the track and on the road. These two similar sports cars are the stars in this luxury sports car comparison test. The Chevrolet Corvette and BMW M4 Competition are both rear-drive two-door sport coupes with 500 hp. It would be hard to go wrong with either, but which is the right choice for you? We have our preference, but everyone is different and we’re here to help you make the best decision. It’s the 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 vs. 2021 BMW M4 Competition sports car comparison test.
As you will see at the end of the video review of the BMW M4 and C8 Corvette that both are great sports cars. The C8 Corvette is faster but the BMW M4 has back seats but gives you more raw rear wheel driving experience.
You can get a lot more C8 Corvette for the price vs. the BMW M4. The C8 Corvette is the best mid engine car for the price range and even compared to other mid engine supercars that are double or triple the price.
This morning Chevrolet teased a 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 video on social media saying the details will be released this fall.
And from the “sounds” of it its going to be amazing and what everyone was expecting with a high revving, high pitched, high powered flat plane crank engine like the one in the C8R corvette racing team cars.
Here’s the video of the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06
Corvettes of Carlisle is August 26 – 28, 2021 and not quite fall but that would be a great spot to introduce the new C8 Corvette Z06 to the market if they were to do it.
The LA Auto Show is November 19th-28th at the Los Angeles Convention Center and Chicago had their car show but Detroit nixed their car show so possibly the Los Angeles Auto Show would be best place to announce more about the Z06 C8 Corvette if they don’t do it at Corvettes of Carlisle.
Per their 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 video:
Turn your sound on and feel the hair on the back of your neck raise. Check back this fall for your first look at the next chapter in one of the most storied legacies to ever touch the track and the street.

In this video from YouTuber and Former C8 Corvette owner Cars, Costs, and Technology he goes over the new 2022 C8 Corvette options for carbon fiber parts.
And what you will see is you don’t have to spend that much from the factory and General Motors when there are companies like Racing Sport Concepts that make the same parts for a lot less and are extremely high quality.
We speak from experience since our C8 Corvette has a Carbon Fiber Front Splitter and it’s are second one and Racing Sport Concepts Carbon Fiber Front Splitter for the C8 Corvette is a lot nice than the first one we had.
Over $23,000 in CARBON FIBER OPTIONS For The 2022 C8 Corvette!
The one option you could use GM and Chevrolet to upgrade that isn’t that bad is the Carbon Fiber cluster-surround and console door switch (Code FA5) since most aftermarket companies aren’t making them and its priced at about $1,500 which seems more reasonable.
Full list of 2022 C8 Corvette Carbon Fiber Part Options
Carbon Fiber Cluster-Surround and Console (Interior)- $1,500
Visible Carbon Fiber Removable Roof Panel- $2,495
Engine Appearance Package- $995 Total- $23,040
As you can see in Cars, Costs, and Technology video that is over $23,040 in Carbon Fiber parts and you can save over 15k by going with Racing Sport Concepts suggested items we highlighted above or 66% SAVINGS!
HOW MUCH EXPOSED CARBON FIBER CAN YOU GET ON A C8 CORVETTE!?
Rick Corvette Conti just posted a video after we made this post and talked about some of the same things the other YouTuber and we noticed with the Carbon Fiber parts being overpriced from the factory and Chevrolet.
HOW MUCH carbon fiber you can get on a C8 Corvette and HOW MUCH is costs, make sure you’re sitting down for this one.
