Race-Oriented Edition or Package for the 2021 Chevy Corvette Stingray

With a gorgeous design and mind-blowing performance to match, it’s not hard to see why the 2021 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray is so beloved by Orlando drivers. While the model provides an excellent experience on both the road and the track, some customers have been inquiring here at Carl Black Orlando about a race-optimized version of the vehicle known as the Corvette Stingray R. Is there a race-oriented version of the 2021 Corvette C8?

There is no special “R” edition of 2021 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray. Chevy does offer a Stingray R package for the 2021 Corvette, but this package does not provide any performance boosts, changes, or optimizations; instead, is fits the 2021 Corvette with an array of R-related appearance elements.

The Stingray uses a V-8 engine. But for how long?

What comes on the R package for the 2021 Chevy Corvette Stingray?

The “Stingray R Appearance Package” is available on the Corvette build configurator on the Chevy website. The package costs $695 to add to one’s vehicle and is described as a “Corvette Racing Themed Graphics Package with Jake and Stingray R logos.” The package includes:

  • Tone-on-tone center hood stripe in black with Jake logo and Corvette racing script
  • Stingray R logo wheel center caps
  • Stingray R graphics on both sides of the vehicle

When outfitted with the package, the 2021 Stingray will have Corvette Racing’s Jake mascot on the hood, along with two Stingray R graphics on the rear of the optional side rockers (although models have been sighted with these graphics in different places as well). The result is that the vehicle will resemble the Corvette C8 R racecar.
