As a C2 Corvette owner, I’ve always been a fan of the stinger hood and Chevy’s attempts at recreating the look via a Stinger hood graphic on the most recent generations have pretty much worked. However, when the 2021 options list showed a preview of the new Stinger graphics option, I found myself having a hard time embracing the new design.
The C8 Corvette’s front (and frunk) has been such a radical departure from previous generations. As the engine now resides in the rear, there is no “power bulge” on the C8’s hood as compared to the C7s, so Chevy’s designers created a two-tone graphic designed to run along the narrow creases on each side of the hood’s center.
The new Stinger Stripes are $500 and are offered in three flavors:
- DZX Carbon Flash/Edge Red Stinger Stripe
- DZU Carbon Flash/Edge Yellow Stinger Stripe
- DZV Carbon Flash/Midnight Silver Stinger Stripe
Tonight on Instagram we caught our first photo of a 2021 Corvette with the DZU Carbon Flash/Edge Yellow Stinger Stripes on a Zeus Bronze Z51 Coupe. Perhaps this isn’t the best color combo to show off these new stripes but we’ll take what we can get. Who wants to guess the car has matching Edge Yellow calipers?

Do you like the concept of the 2021 Stinger stripes? Want to see a different color combo before passing judgment? Us too. I’d like to see the Carbon Flash/Midnight Silver stripes on a black car myself. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
