Corvette Museum Releases 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Build Stats

Per the Corvette Museum the most popular build was the coupe and the most popular color of the C8 Corvette was Torch Red. That makes a lot of sense since that was the color of the C8 Corvette Unveil car in July 2019.

Also, although Rapid Blue is a favorite color of most C8 Corvette owners and in the C8 Corvette Forums dealers told people if they ordered a Rapid Blue C8 Corvette it could delay the order even before Covid or UAW strike hit and already delayed everything.

Here are the C8 Corvette build stats per Corvette Museum

Though production of the 2020 Corvette is expected to continue through early December, with order changes no longer being allowed the team at GM was able to go ahead and release the final stats.

Coupe was the most popular of the two models available with 82.4% of the 20,368 total 2020s produced. As for color line up, Torch Red was the most popular for 2020 with 25% of the cars in that hue. The complete final color line up is as follows:

  • Torch Red (25%)
  • Arctic White (15%)
  • Black (11.7%)
  • Sebring Orange (6.8%)
  • Elkhart Lake Blue (6.7%)
  • Rapid Blue (6%)
  • Ceramic Matrix Gray (5.97%)
  • Blade Silver (5.55%)
  • Shadow Gray (5.45%)
  • Long Beach Red (5.25%)
  • Accelerate Yellow (3.38%)
  • Zeus Bronze (2.69%)

Carbon Flash Badges were the most popular with 91.6% of the cars. The Z51 package was selected on 76%. 3LT was the most popular package with 46.4%. Front Lift was opted for on 58.4% of the cars while performance exhaust (NPP) is on 89.2%. The GT2 seats were the most popular pick with 61.6%. Painted Carbon Flash Open Spoke Wheels were the most popular with 41.7%, closely followed by the Bright Silver Open Spoke with 36.9%. The National Corvette Museum will have delivered 943 Corvettes for the 2020 model year.

C8 E-Ray Corvette, No C8 Grand Sport?

Check out this video by Liberty Drives on YouTube as he covers the new C8 Corvette E-Ray or the C8 E Ray which is rumored to be an electric C8 Corvette vs. the C8 Grand Sport.

Per Liberty  Drives:

We all knew sooner or later Chevrolet would make a hybrid C8 Corvette for their E-Ray name. Now there are spy shots and videos out of the test mule for the car and info on when we can expect trims like the E-Ray and Zora. Let me know what you think of the E-Ray replacing the Grand Sport down in the comments. I was a fan of the Grand Sports but I think this makes sense for the lineup.

 

Attack Blue Air Filter for C8 Corvette Gains 12 HP! (VIDEO)

Check out this video from HorsePower Obsessed showing the difference in horsepower gained from the Attack Blue Air Filter upgrade on the C8 Corvette.

Per the Dyno it gained 12 HorsePower on top of being made in the USA and not having to pay a little less from a Chevy Dealership to use a paper crappy air filter.

Some other mods like Sport Cats or Headers which are in 1000s maybe increased horsepower by 20+ horsepower on the C8 Corvette.

So in this case the Attack Blue Air Filters are definitely worth adding to any C8 Corvette and its easy to install yourself. It’s a no brainer to get one of these NanoFiber Performance Attack Blue Air Filters.

Paragon Performance Launches C8 Corvette Aftermarket Parts Website

While checking out new videos on YouTube on the C8 Corvette I came across this new company called Paragon Performance with a lowering kit, exhaust, and vinyl sticker lights for the C8 Corvette.

So I did more digging and found the same videos on Instagram as well as their website that states on their About us page:
