PICS] The Low Profile Spoiler in Both Body Color and Carbon Flash


One of the additions to the 2022 Corvette model year is the new Low Profile Spoiler. Chevrolet tells us that it was created to give Corvette owners a third rear spoiler/wing option and after seeing it in person at Corvettes at Carlisle, we really like how it appears on the rear deck of the C8 Corvette.

The RPO for the spoiler is TVS and it has an MSRP of $595. It’s available for cars equipped with the Z51 Performance Package as well as base Stingrays. If ordered with a base Stingray, you will also receive the Z51 front splitter. Buyers can also choose between ordering it in body color or Carbon Flash black metallic.

The Low Profile Spoiler utilizes the same mounting points as the Z51 spoiler, and if you have the base car, the installer will have to drill into the rear deck utilizing a provided template.

We were surprised to find more examples of the Low Profile Spoiler than expected at Corvettes at Carlisle. Under the Chevy engineering test contained three Corvettes with the body color examples, and we found the Carbon Flash versions on the engineer’s preproduction 2022 CTF Corvettes that were parked in the rear of the show. We got plenty of photos of them from multiple angles to give you the best look yet.

  1. The azz end of the C8 just doesn’t do it for me. The low mount body color spoiler looks good and, imo, should be standard.

  2. It looks good. For those of us who have 2020 or 2021’s it is an option. I would be interested to know how it is mounted.

  3. So other than looks, what does it do for the Corvette? More downforce? Better aerodynamics? Or what?

  4. Guess I got a bit lucky, ordering sight unseen, because it simply sounded like what I’d wanted earlier but did not find available. And at an even swap $$ for the painted calipers, thinking I could better control their color by doing that myself, it was a true no-brainer. So getting pushed into the ’22 model at least had one benefit. It being standard wouldn’t be wise…..let us each make it as it appeals to us.

  5. I do have a base 2021 and have been considering the 2022 low spoiler in body color. I wonder when they will be listed in the dealer parts system so I can order one?

  6. There is a low profile spoiler on the Chevrolet accessories website. But it does not look like this one.

  7. I am torn. I do like the looks of the low profile and wonder if it should be body color or carbon flash depending on whether or not you do all of the other carbon flash. At first, I thought I liked the high wing but am now leaning away from it. The high wing almost looks too big for it, and would make it a bit more difficult for storage of the targa.

  8. I have already ordered it without even seeing it. Seeing these pictures I am glad I did. I ordered it body color (white).

  9. Definitely like the low profile spoiler especially with the front spoiler in carbon flash. Blends well with the other black accents on the car.

  10. The low 2022 rear spoiler should be body color imo. It is a small change to the rear profile and it should blend in and not stand out . The C8 rear can get unsightly quick and no spoiler keeps the pure body design in check.

  11. Looks better than the original spoiler. But no word on how effective it is. Still like the clean non-spoiler look though.

  12. According to Chevrolet all three spoilers/wing (standard, low profile, rear wing) develop the same 400 lbs. of downforce. So it’s strictly up to the buyer which they prefer.

  13. Have ordered a non Z51 2022 with the low profile spoiler in body color. Was torn between the Carbon Flash and body color. After seeing the pics, I am glad I opted for body color. It blends better into the rest of the car than the Carbon Flash. A great inexpensive addition to the C8!

  14. I much prefer the Stages 2 and 3 duck lip spoiler from the C7 over any of the insectoid rear spoilers offered either from GM or the aftermarket…including the Cunningham C8 Corvette about to be auctioned off. I like that version over the factory and other aftermarket rear spoilers, but I would still prefer the duck lip spoilers.

  15. I had asked a very popular manufacture of carbon fiber Corvette parts if they would be interested in making a “laid-down” spoiler about a year ago for my 2021 HTC. They never responded back to me. Obviously, I wasn’t the only one that wanted to give the new Mid-Engine Corvette a sleeker and longer look. Thank you GM for developing and making this better looking spoiler.

  16. I see two different low profile spoilers on Chevy Corvette Build web site. One is “Low-profile rear spoiler and front splitter” , which is $595 and the other is “Corvette Low Profile Spoiler in Carbon Flash Metallic by AirDesign”, which is $549. I wonder what the difference is.
