In this video from Rick Corvette Conti on YouTube he shares the latest C8 Corvette news and has a date set for his C8 Corvette “Evil Knievel ” type of stunt jump which is December 19th, 2021.
C8 Corvette Plant Slowdowns
Rick mentions a lot of his C8 Corvettes for customers are just sitting at the Bowling Green, KY plant for over month that he thought he should of received by now.
C8 Corvette Z06 Pricing
Rick also shares his thoughts on the C8 Corvette Z06 Pricing YouTube videos and confirms its all speculation as he speculates the pricing will come out in January or February 2022 from Chevrolet and General Motors officially.
Heated Steering Wheel
If you don’t get a heated steering wheel with any GM vehicle you get a $25.00 credit, 1 year free remote access plan, and they will retrofit your car when the part comes in since it’s been effected like many things with the supply chain and chip shortage.
Rick Corvette Conti C8 Corvette Jump
Rick Conti mentions he will be jumping his C8 Corvette Evil Knievel style with a full video production type video on December 19th, 2021. He will be sharing the video on his YouTube channel here and he has already completed the jump and has some slight injuries from that and also jumping over his car.
He mentions he messed up his C8 Corvette Convertible by jumping it but it is currently fixed already. It was a lot more damage then he expected and you will have to watch his YouTube channel Dec 19th to see the video of the C8 Corvette jump.
C8 CORVETTE JUMPS OVER ANOTHER C8
So here is the video of Rick Corvette Conti Jumping a C8 Corvette over another C8 Corvette. Real or Fake with good high production paid for editing? Leave your comment below.
He conveniently does the “jump” at night, in the rain, in a “private lot” that looks like a commercial building or school parking lot. You don’t see him land or go ramp to ramp and supposedly lands on asphalt but runs out of the car ok and the car flys down the concrete at 70MPH.
Unlike StreetSpeed717 where you clearly see him jump his lambo over his other lambo there is some fishy stuff going on here with Rick and looks more like a high production magic trick of the mind on some of his YouTube Commentors which also appear to fake? (a lot of comments from profiles with no pictures, videos on their page, about section blank ect..)
WHAT DID WE DO? EVEL KNIEVEL CORVETTE JUMP FOLLOW UP
Here is the follow up to the Rick Corvette Conti C8 Corvette jump that was fake and all for “entertainment” and “views”. So if you enjoy fake car jump videos this one is for you! lol
Check out this video from Brink of Speed on YouTube where he leaks the 2023 C8 Z06 Corvette pricing starting at $88,000.
He supposedly has a Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 build sheet with all the pricing including Carbon Fiber Wheels at $11,000 and the Z07 package adding another $9,500.
UPDATED – someone in the comments is saying they made this up. With the internet nowadays you never know what is true, false, made up. As we discussed in past C8 z06 posts its all pure speculation until Chevrolet or General Motors officially announces it.
Also, if you want to go with the 3LZ option that’s another $11,950. You will see in this build its priced out to about $144,000 including $8k in Tax.
Back in June of 2020 months after the C8 Corvettes started rolling out to customers we created this post on How to Lower the C8 Corvette as people started with the aftermarket mods.
One of the biggest issues cosmetically with the C8 Corvette is the big wheel gap and horrible stock wheel choices. The black trident wheel is probably the best option but again the offset isn’t as good as it could be and still a massive wheel gap that doesn’t look good for a mid engine sports car.
Since the wheels and wheel gap are an issue the most popular mods are getting aftermarket wheels for the C8 Corvette and lowering the C8 Corvette with exhausts, bolt ons, and wrapping their C8 Corvettes being very popular as well.
In this video most recent 2021 video by Paragon Performance and aftermarket marketplace for C8 Corvette mods explains every option depending on you having a base model C8 Corvette with no lift and no Z51 option to having the front lift and Z51 C8 Corvette stingray.
They sell front collars, suspension kits, and springs to lower your C8 Corvette. If you go to their site and order anything mention you found them on C8CorvetteBlog.com in the notes or when you call.
Check out this video by Brink of Speed on YouTube where he shares a video from a follower of his that recorded a Spokeswoman at the LA Auto Show announce a 10.4 1/4 Mile and 0 to 60 time of 2.6 seconds.
This is for the Non Z07 package that has the bigger wing and aero which is a more track focused car vs a drag strip car where you wouldn’t want to have the big wing from the Z07 package and much rather have the more sleeker duck bill type spoiler that the base model or non Z07 package C8 Z06 has.
Today, they have officially announced its ready to ship. Here are some of the highlights of ProCharger’s Supercharger for the Corvette C8. It’s interesting to note the horsepower increase is pretty close to the new C8 Z06 670HP with the flat plane crank and actually edging it out by 5+ HP or so.
This was a year long development process and they wanted to make sure everything was tested, fitted, and the drivability is good. Also, install was a bolt on the kit so it doesn’t take away from the trunk space and matches aesthetics and looks even better with their carbon fiber accents.
ProCharger Supercharger for C8 Corvette Highlights
.3 reduction in 0-60 times.
8 additional MPH in the 1/4 mile.
Reduction in lap times on road course.
675+ HP on the dyno when using 93 octane.
Per ProCharger’s YouTube video:
After over a year of research, design, and rigorous testing the wait is finally over, and it’s SO worth it! ProCharger superchargers is happy to announce the world’s first supercharger system for the C8 Corvettes is NOW SHIPPING! That’s right, you can have Z06 power, without the wait!
BUILT FOR THE STREET: HO TUNER KIT PLUS DELIVERS 675+ HP
Yes, that’s right six hundred and seventy five HP from this LT2 package on only 6.5psi of boost and premium pump gas. These are the perfect system for those wanting a daily driver that has to have “more power than the other guy” without complication. Meaning, no additional fuel systems, no methanol injection, no port injection, just good old fashion boost. Thankfully when you combine the ultra-efficient P-1X ProCharger supercharger and massive air to water intercooler system, the power gains even on just 6.5psi are phenomenal with just 93 octane pump gas.
HO Intercooled Tuner Kit Plus (now shipping) P-1SC-1

Check out this video from Paragon Performance where they cover all the items they have available they personally used on their own C8 Corvette for the track.
We have been covering the Paragon Performance C8 aftermarket site since they launched back in October 2020 when we launched this C8 Corvette Blog too. We have also bought many parts from them for our Chalk Grey C8 Corvette including axels, taillight tint vinyl, and Girodisc rotors with Carbotech brake pads which really help if you have a C8 Corvette with squealing brakes.
Also, since we changed out our C8 Corvette wheels from Vossen Wheels to BC Forged Wheels we are going to lower our C8 even more with their lowering springs to compliment the collars we got from Cicio Performance before they made them as well.
Paragon Performance is an aftermarket site for all things C8 Corvette. Each month they have been putting out new C8 Corvette product updates and here is there September C8 Corvette product update list.
This blog post will be updated as they update their C8 Corvette build series on their YouTube channel to show you what they do with it.
Here is an introduction video on why they chose the C8 Corvette
