If you’re a soon-to-be new C8 Corvette owner looking for some ideas on customizing Chevy’s mid-engine plastic fantastic, check out these photos and a video from Sean Starks of Rancho Cucamonga, California. Sean got the 2020 Corvette at MSRP from Selman Chevrolet in Orange, CA and immediately set out to make it his own. In fact, his custom vanity plate says just that: MYOWNC8.

We always think that great-looking rides start with the wheels. Avant Garde made a custom set of their AG F338 Mono-forged wheels in a staggered 20/21-inch set-up, and then color-matched them to Sean’s Rapid Blue Coupe with Titanium accents. With new wheels comes new Michelin Pilot Sport 4 Tires. On the fronts, the 20X9-inch wheels are wearing tires sized at 255/30ZR20X while the rear wheels are 21X12-inches and fitted with 325/25ZR21X.

As you look at those custom wheels, you will notice the huge R1 Concept brake kit behind them. The big brake kit features 405mm 8-piston calipers with 16-inch rotors in the front and 380mm 6piston calipers with 15-inch rotors in the rear. The kit also accommodates the rear electronic brake which is built into the rear caliper assembly.

Not content with the plastic-looking rear engine compartment surround, Sean took his C8 Corvette to Cool it Window Tint in Upland, CA. where he had the back wrapped in a carbon fiber vinyl which we think provides an exotic look the mid-engine Corvette deserves.

As an early C8 owner, Sean was also able to take advantage of ordering Hennessey’s C8 Corvette exhaust which are now sold out. Other enhancements to the Stingray include the 5VM aero kit and a large rear wing from Aerrolarri.

  1. The Cunningham 600-hp C8 giveaway has the best wing I’ve seen on the C8: goosenecks. Those are really sharp.

  2. RadarB8, unfortunately people can’t handle the truth. I disagree with Kevin, but he is still entitled to his opinion. The C8 is getting attention from an audience that never paid much attention to the Corvette before because it’s not your grandfathers Corvette! Now every douchebag with a YouTube channel seems to own one, and are currently ruin them at a rapid rate! They don’t really like the Corvette, they are just riding the wave of the C8’s popularity. Once it runs it’s course, they will be moving on to some other car to ruin! Which they all do, because they have tons of disposable income. They don’t have to work hard like the rest of us to acquire a Corvette or multiple Corvette’s. And they certainly don’t use them the way they were intended to be used.

  3. I really liked Sean’s car and decided to post it after he sent me these photos and the video. It’s pretty sad that he is then attacked here in the comments section. I try not to be heavy-handed in the comments section, but tonight I removed several negative posts. If you have nothing nice to say, then move on.

  4. I’m pretty sure those rotors are on backwards. Spiraling should be toward travel, no?

    Author: brakes go on a car, which can then break. Careful with your homophones 🙂

  5. So Keith censors people for criticizing a man who has poor taste? That C8 was done in poor taste, most would agree. If Sean makes a bad choice with how he modifies his car, then he better be ready to be called out on it! This everybody play nice and don’t be critical towards others is censorship. It’s a forum, it’s about discussing automobiles and how they look and are styled. Legitimate criticism is not offensive or threatening in any way whatsoever. As long as we aren’t being profane or extremely abusive you shouldn’t be disciplining any of us! That is completely unacceptable. Everybody is entitled to call it like they see it, even if you don’t agree. Favortism or nepotism is something that shouldn’t be tolerated as well, just because he is a friend or an acquaintance of yours, doesn’t mean you should defend his honor by deleting our comments. Cancel culture, political correctness are the real problem, not constructive criticism. It’s very disappointing to see this happening on this forum as well now. I hope you reconsider the decision you made to censor people on this forum when it isn’t warranted.

  6. I really liked his car? It seems like Keith should reevaluate his taste in automobile styling. Because that C8 looks hideous! The motif of that C8 reminds me of those idiots who turn beautiful GM classics into donks. Out of proportion wheels and tires with ridiculous looking paint jobs with sound systems they could wake the dead! It’s a form of car abuse. Taking a beautiful car and making it look awful and unappealing seems to be a popular trend today, one that I hope ends soon!

  7. It’s okay to criticize the car, but a commenter that was new to the site directly went after the owner in an unwarranted attack. FYI, I don’t know Sean and this has nothing to do with favoritism. It’s about decorum. You wouldn’t go to a car show and tell some owner to his face some of the comments I’ve seen here. And if I let it go, then further comments are profane and abusive. This is my house and these are my rules. Just be respectful. If you can’t handle that, then go back to trolling on the Corvette Forum.

  8. Keith, you are right this is your house, and your rules, but that still doesn’t mean you aren’t wrong. As long as the commentary stays on the subject of automobiles, and doesn’t go into personal attacks that are extremely profane or unrelated to automobiles, there should be no censoring. No trolling here Keith! Just telling it like it is. Unfortunately people can’t handle the truth anymore, and this forum is now proving that point.

  9. You say as long as it doesn’t go into personal attacks, but that is exactly what happened, from a user who had never posted here before. I want open threads, I don’t want to delete comments. It’s that simple. Be respectful when you post. It’s not that hard.

  10. I disagree with you Keith. I believe he was insensitive but not abusive or “attacking”. And I feel you overreacted to his criticism of Sean’s C8. And what is considered respectful and disrespectful varies greatly. It would best to let his peers on this forum judge him. If he crosses the line they will let him know that he is no longer wanted here and he would get the hint. And if he doesn’t, then you should intervene. Being able to speak freely is immensely important. You don’t want people worrying about whether they should articulate something or not for fear of being censored. Remember disagreeable commentary is still a part of free speech. You really don’t want this forum to become politically correct, that would make things extremely boring and uninteresting for all of us. And it would ultimately drive people away from this forum, which wouldn’t be good for anyone. Just my opinion, it’s your forum Keith not mine, so do as you wish. Thank you for allowing me to express my opinion on this subject.
