    I may be wrong, but I think this is at least one of the first if not the first sightings of a 2020 Corvette Stingray with the carbon fiber mirrors.

    These are an "Accessories" option so they are dealer-installed.

    I pulled this screenshot from a walkaround video that was done by a guy who happened to wander into the employee parking lot of the Corvette Assembly Plant. You can watch his excellent walkaround video here:

    Great find and post CorvetteBlogger. First C8 exterior visible CF I have ever seen. These door mirror caps are a LPO dealer purchased accessory,

        Good view of the exposed CF roof. And again, no badges ... I am sort of hoping the badges are just taped on (no alignment holes) since I am not sure I am a fan of the stingray on the deck lid. And I like the wheels ...! Thanks CorvetteBlogger.

          It looks very fresh off the line. Nice pics of the wheels in the sun.

            Thanks Keith! Great video! That video really does it for me, I don’t like rapid blue at all. Just my opinion I’m glad there are people that really love this color, I personally don’t think baby blue shows off the lines and highlights of the car. IMO, The GM configurator shows rapid blue as a much, much darker color.

              **** it, I didn't know the CF Mirrors were dealer installed. Even more anxiety for me (I have dealer trust issues)

                At least once a week there's a video or photo that reveals some detail I hadn't noticed before.
