Chevrolet is offering three different looks for owners of the 2020 Corvette Stingray Convertible, and while you can look at the Build and Price configurator to see a visual representation of the different roof options for the Convertible, we prefer to view the options on a real cars before rendering an opinion.
Up until this week, nearly of the 2020 Corvette Stingray Convertibles we have spied on the road or seen on display have all had Black Nacelles, which is the fancy name that Chevrolet gave the two humps behind the seats. Thanks to “Corvette_Nut” on the Corvette Forum for sourcing these photos of the convertible done in body-color.
When ordering or purchasing a C8 Convertible, you have three different color choices available for the roof and nacelles. They include the body-color roof and nacelles which is the default combination, or you can upgrade to either the Carbon Flash roof and nacelles (RPO D84), or the combination of a body-colored roof with Carbon Flash nacelles (RPO D86). As an FYI, the two different upgrades both cost an additional $1,295.
In this example from Corvette_Nut, we see a Sebring Orange Stingray Convertible with the Orange roof and nacelles. The car still has plenty of contrasting black with the exterior trim and the black open-spoke wheels.
One of the changes from the C7 to the C8 has to do with the color of the A-Pillars that helps to frame the windshield. In the C7 days, all the A-Pillars were Black, but on the C8 the A-Pillars are all body-colored. However, if you order the Convertible with the black roof and nacelles, your A-Pillars will also be Black as well.
While at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, there was an Accelerate Yellow Convertible that featured the Yellow Roof and Black Nacelles. In speaking with Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles about the three different looks on the convertible, he shared with me that he believed that most buyers will either go all Carbon Flash or all body-colored and that the combo of the body-colored roof and black nacelles would be the least-selected option of the three.
Having three different looks to the convertible will open up people’s imaginations in how they want to customize their 2020 Corvettes. As a fan of the Convertible, we like having choices, and this design feature essentially offers 34 variations based on the 12 colors and three different options (12 colors, but only the body color option is available for Black Convertibles.)
For you Convertible buyers, I would love to hear which combo you’re going with. Let us know in the comments form below!
