One of the first people to start doing everything possible to their new C8 Corvette is Gabe Florido or “Gabe Florido” on Instagram which totally makes sense since he created CarLifestyle on IG as well which is an automotive IG page with over 4 million followers.
So far he has added these aftermarket C8 Corvette touches to his car as of this post;
Vossen Wheels (21×12.5 Rears, 20×9.5 Fronts)
Stealth Xpel Wrap
Fabspeed Sport Cats with their cat back exhaust
Red Engine Cover
Check out how it sounds and looks now with all of these aftermarket C8 Corvette add ons.

On May 8, 2020, John Heinricy and the Stradman test drove a Hennessey-prepared 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray Z51 (rear spoiler removed) with 650 HP (Hennessey stainless steel exhaust upgrades & 135 HP Nitrous Express system – not twin turbo) to a top speed of 205.1 mph (confirmed by VBox GPS) at the Continental Tires Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas.
Is Peitz Performance going to have the first Flat Plane Crank 2020 C8? Check out this YouTube video from Chevy Dude to learn more.
Alex with Peitz Performance in Houston, TX bought his shop a 2020 Corvette. He is ripping the engine out and putting in a flat plane crank instead of the LT2 that comes with the car. He is also the person doing the Twin Turbo build for Emelia Hartfords C8 Car.
Lamborghini, Mclaren, Ferrari should all be on alert!
Here’s what Paul discovered:
Named for Zora Arkus-Duntov, the legendary General Motors engineer widely known as “the father of the Corvette,” it’s destined to be the “ultimate” version of the new C8 mid-engined ‘Vette. The Zora will rely on a gas-electric hybrid drivetrain that will punch out a full 1,000 horsepower through all four wheels.
Among other things, the stop-work order confirmed that an assortment of other Corvette models are in the works, as was widely expected, including the traditional step-ladder upgrades, starting with the Z06 and then the ZR1.
The internal document, significantly, confirms what TheDetroitBureau.com has repeatedly reported: Chevrolet will be turning to electrification to punch up Corvette’s performance.
That includes a Corvette Grand Sport originally due out in 2023 that was to pair the current Stingray’s 6.2-liter V-8 with a hybrid-boost system to deliver about 600 hp, or more than 100 ponies beyond what the track-rated C8 can manage.
But things will be pushed to the extreme with the Zora that, insiders indicate, will pull together an assortment of bells and whistles to get up to a full 1,000 hp. That starts with a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 and at least one, and possibly even more, electric motors.
Hat tip to Jalopnik and Hagerty for sharing this info on the leaked Corvette C8 Production schedule that shows GM bringing us the C8 Z06 in 2022 and a 1000HP C8 in 2025 named “ZORA”!
Hagerty has gotten its hands on a supposedly leaked schedule of release dates for each upcoming trim of the new mid-engine C8 Chevy Corvette. It shows a range-topper is due to drop in 2025 as a 1,000 horsepower hybrid called the “Zora,” so that’s cool.
Here’s what’s on the document Hagerty claims to have come across:
Model Year, Engine, Power (est.)Torque (est.), Likely Application
So at the top we have your standard, current C8 Corvette. No real surprises with the Z06 or ZR1, though they both look like winners already. The big news is not just one, but two hybrid Corvette models. The Grand Sport comes two years before and about 400 horsepower shy of the second hybrid—the range-topping 1,000 HP model supposedly called the Zora.
If this document is a real leak, and if this outline stays true through to production (with possible covid-19 delays coming), then we got some early reports a little wrong about what motors went in which Corvettes.
Many reports believed the ZR1 would be the range-topper, as has been the case in the past, and assumed the high-performance hybrid gear would naturally go in that model. But it appears the Zora will be something new, so that’s fun.
