And Stage One of the C8 Corvette Build at Protective Film Solutions
They start off with a full paint correction and clay bar and then add a clear PPF (paint protection film) to their C8 Corvette. Then they added an Xpel XR Plus tint to the driver and passenger windows as well as the front windshield and STEK windshield rock protection film.
Lastly, they added Glanz ceramic coating to the interior, wheels, and exterior of the C8 Corvette. Stay tuned for more videos we will keeping this post updated as they build the C8 Corvette.

All-New 2023 Corvette Z06 REVEALED! WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
HERE’S WHAT I THINK OF THE C8 Z06 CORVETTE! *2023 C8 Z06 HUGE UPDATE!
OFFICIAL C8 Corvette Z06 Photo Released! My Reaction…
In this video from Cars, Costs and Technology on his take on C8 Corvette Pricing. Do you think he is right and the C8 Corvette pricing will come down?
He does say its going to hold it’s value and thinks it will stay above what you paid for it but thinks the 25-30k mark ups are going to go away. Funny enough we posted about the C8 Z06 is going to be marked up as researched from us personally and by one of Speed Phenom’s videos. And most dealers have lists of over 1000 people wanted a C8 Z06 and again is going to be hard to get and marked up.
The most we seen in an email from a Chevy dealer is they are going to mark up a C8 Corvette Z06 $200,000. And most are saying they will mark it up $25-$50k. There are only a few dealers like Ciocca Corvette, Macmulkin, Criswell, and Whitmoyer that are selling at MSRP but there wait times and lists are so long it can take a year or more to get it at that price.
So not really sure how much the C8 Corvette pricing will come down if at all in the next year since its going to be hard to get a C8 Z06 and the production levels of the C8 Corvette is still a lot lower than the C7 Corvettes. And C7 Corvettes are still selling for high prices with the used car market, inflation, strike, plant closures, and chip shortages. There really hasn’t been any sign from Chevy or General Motors they are going to double production. And the C8 Z06 is just going to create even more buzz for the brand and people wanting to get a C8 Corvette even if they can’t get the C8 Z06.
2023 C8 Corvette Z06 Pricing
Recently we posted another article about the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 pricing starting at $88,000 based on a build sheet which is close to two Chevy dealers saying it was going to start at $87,000. Read more here and watch these videos.
However we will have the C8 Corvette Z06 Pricing by the end of March 2022 which has been speculated to start in $87,995 to $92,995 range for the base model C8 Z06 vs the C8 Corvette Z06 Z07 package with the carbon fiber wheels and all of the carbon fiber options.
C8 Z06 Corvette MSRP Pricing Imminent!
Per Records Rebuilds on YouTube We review the signs that pricing will soon be released for the C8 Z06 Corvette, the prototypes seen at the Indy 500, potential order dates, and possible CTF sightings.
Check out this video from Brink of Speed as he uses the new 2022 Corvette builder as prices just went live to build the new C0rvette C8R edition.
He uses the Corvette C8R edition as an example to show you what it really costs by adding a C8R graphics package with a plaque. The C8R Edition doesn’t change the engine, DCT or any performance elements to the car.
Just adding the Corvette C8R edition adds $12,940 more to the base model 2022 C8 Corvette stingray. It adds the Z51 package and a lot of the 3LT options along with black trident spoke wheels.
Other than the Jake logo, plaque, and stickers along with the new Hypersonic gray color everything else is the same as the 2020 and 2021 C8 Corvette models. The new Hypersonic grey color is included but if you want the accelerate yellow C8R Edition C8 Corvette its another $500.00
He also specs it based on what Chevrolet showed what they looked like at the Corvettes at Carlisle tent. It came to another $25,390 dollars (just for looks) in options to match what they did with the carbon fiber package as well.
If you built this yourself it would be probably a quarter of that $25k as Brink of Speed points out. The only difference is saying you have one of the 1000 they are building. It really does seem like a marketing gimmick and wouldn’t be a good idea if you already own a C8 Corvette. It’s similar to the Callaway C8 Corvette that had only appearance changes but no performance upgrades. It could be a cool option if you never owned a C8 Corvette before as your first C8 Corvette you purchase but it doesn’t seem like an overpriced marketing gimmick.

Check out this video from Cars, Costs, and Technology where he covers the C8 Corvette production numbers from 2020 and 2021 so far and compares them to the C7 Corvette production numbers.
As you will see thanks to the chip shortage, UAW strike, and Covid the C8 Corvette production numbers are down vs. C7 Corvette typical production.
2021 there were 26,216 C8 Corvettes produced
2020 there were 20,368 C8 Corvettes produced
The first year of the C7 Corvette in 2014 there were 37,288 C7 Corvettes produced which is only 9,000 units less then both 2020 and 2021 C8 Corvette production combined.
Also, another thing you will see in the video is that C8 Corvette Convertible skyrocketed especially in the 2021 model production year.

Check out this video from Brink of Speed on YouTube as he does a Full 4k Walk Around video of the new 2022 Hypersonic C8R Edition C8 Corvette.
In 2022, this is a C8 Corvette package that is called the C8R edition and as we covered before it’s mainly a graphics and sticker tribute to the C8.R race car. There is no engine improvement and still uses the same Tremac DCT in any other C8 Corvette.

The 2022 Corvette Stingray IMSA GTLM Championship Edition is based on the 3LT trim with Z51 Performance Package. Each car includes Corvette Racing-themed graphics packages. Accelerate Yellow No. 3 editions feature gray graphics and Hypersonic Gray No. 4 editions feature yellow accents.

1st Look at the 2022 Convertible C8.R from Corvettes At Carlisle 2021!
Check out this video from Fourwheel Trader as he provides car depreciation analysis on many types of popular cars.
In this video he covers the still top selling and leader in July of 2021 C8 Corvette. We haven’t noticed that much cracking since the C8 is still hard to get and in most cases 12-18 months to get one in your hands when ordering as the lists are so big with Chevy dealers across the country.
Buying a Corvette C8? Then this is the video to watch. In this depreciation and buying guide of the Corvette C8 I will show you how much Corvette prices changed in the last three months and what the current premiums are. Furthermore, I will show that we might be at the beginning of the end for the c8 price premiums. You can contact me at email@example.com if you would like a personalized analysis. Following high demand and limited supply, Corvette C8 prices skyrocketed during last year. This uptrend continued during the last three months as the median price point increased even further by 4%. However, as this video will show you, the first signs of a trend change start to appear. First, we can observe that the upward price trend in the used car market came to an end. Used car prices didn’t increase during the last three months. Moreover, we can already see some price decreases at a more granular level. All of this is caused by an increase in used car supply and median mileage. Second, we can see that the price variation starts to decrease. Prices are less extreme and outliers are priced closer to the rest of the market. This usually signals that the market decided on the price. All of this fits within in the larger market trends. Wholesale prices continued to decrease during July and the average time in takes to sell a used car bottomed out. Yet, it’s unlikely that the C8 market will crash. It’s still the most popular car of the US and it’s sales numbers are miles ahead of the competition. Therefore, it’s more likely that prices will adjust gradually. Note that all the prices are advertised prices.
