    [Quote=CorvetteBlogger] The C8 Corvette’s Engine Compartment Without the Engine Appearance Package

    [PICS] The C8 Corvette Engine Compartment Without the Engine Appearance Package

    Up until Corvettes at Carlisle, all 2020 Corvette Stingrays that were both at the reveal or seen on the C8 Dealers Tour had one thing in common. All were loaded models that included the Engine Appearance Package.

    So what do the 2020 Corvette Stingray’s look like without the appearance package? We now have those photos!

    RPO ZZ3 is the Engine Appearance Package and it includes the Carbon Fiber rail covers on each side of the engine, as well as an automatic light that turns on when the engine compartment is opened. Openings allow access to oil filler. The package is priced at $995.

    One of the C8 Corvettes on display inside the Corvette Engineering tent featured a 1LT trim package and limited options. It was a good look at what a potential $59,995 Corvette Stingray would look like, or in this case, what was left off.

    Here are several photos of the C8 Corvette’s engine compartment. The first is a Corvette Stingray with the Engine Appearance Package while the second one doesn’t have it.



    As you can see, the beautiful carbon fiber overlay panels that Chevrolet created mounts on the support bars and provides that “exotic” look to the C8’s engine compartment. The base Stingray without the appearance package features just the black support bars and shows some of the plumbing and other components under them.

    For those that forego the $995 engine appearance package, you can bet this will be one of the first aftermarket mods available (we are looking at you, ACS Composite!) so if you’re reaching to get the Corvette, forget the package for now. But if you want to put an exclamation point on your Corvette order, we suggest checking the box on ZZ3.

    Here are couple more photos just so you get a good look!

    For a grand, I'm fine with the industrial look without the appearance package. But hopefully the aftermarket will offer some similar covers at a much lower price, even if not made of real carbon fiber.

      For those that detail their engine compartment...the fact there is a thousand dollar option package is a stroke of genius by the corvette team.

        I think the uncovered version would look much better if it displayed unpainted aluminum. The chassis cutaways are unpainted and look very exotic, very race car like to me.

          I'd be inclined to put the $995 towards the extra cost of a Convertible since the engine won't be visible in them.
          1969 Orange L89 Coupe - enjoyed it for 3 years then traded to:
          1972 Yellow Convert with removable HT - enjoyed it for 4 years and joined by:
          1976 Orange Coupe - didn't use it much and sold after 12 years
          2000 Yellow Convertible - new C5 caught my attention and loved it for 15 years
          2015 Silver Z51 Convertible - replaced C5 with C7 then traded for GS after 2 years
          2017 Torch Red Grand Sport Convertible - still here and LOVING it

            Does the engine appearance package deflect water that may fall into the engine compartment?

                im opting for this package , mostly for the added lights , lol

                id prefer the plastic over the c/f , but im ok with it , since the LT3 GT2 seats have some c/f in them

                  Some water will land on those covers, but not all.

                    Can the lights be turned on and off at will or do they go on only when hatch is opened?

                    Comment


                    • #11
                      Latest info indicates they go on briefly when the car is started, or stay on when the hatch is opened. You can be sure the aftermarket will try to produce an "at will" switch.

                          Now, what is the cost of the plastic engine cover in red or silver??

                          Comment


                          • #14
                            I'll definitely skip the carbon fiber covers. Easier dipstick access without and maybe even better convection cooling.

                            A few LED strips will have it looking great. I wouldn't be surprised if without the package there is still switched wiring for the LEDs.
