  • High wing option cost?

    Anyone have any idea of the cost?

    It seems we all choose this option it in our C8 configurator, I'm hoping its less than 1,995.00.

    As an aside, since the high wing is a dealer-installed option apparently you cannot order it if you're doing a Museum Delivery.

          I really do like the high wing 5ZU option but why they don't allow that to be done with R8C delivery is perplexing. Hopefully they will change this restriction before production starts.

            As always, check with your dealer to be sure, but here's what the order guide says:

            1 - Requires exterior color (G8G) Arctic White, (GBA) Black, (GJI) Shadow Gray Metallic or (GKZ) Torch Red. Not available with (R8C) Corvette Museum Delivery.
            Note as well that if you wanted a body color high wing (5ZU) it's apparently only available for white, black, shadow gray, or torch red cars. The carbon flash version of the high wing (5ZZ) seems to be available for any color car.

                Oh well I could always leave the Z51 spoiler on it so I can do the R8C and order the 5ZU in torch red as a part and install it locally.

                  There are lots of other LPO items which do not have that restriction, but others which do, e.g. the black-painted Trident wheels (5DF). My guess is that the other LPO items are small enough to ship inside the vehicle. The high wing (wrapped in whatever protective covering it comes with) or the wheels & tires won't fit in the available trunk space or wedged into the interior. But why wouldn't GM just ship them directly to your dealer while you're enjoying the trip home in your shiny new beast? They could be installed when you arrive home.

                    No Wings for me. They look good on some cars but I do not think they look good on this car, IMO , But it is to taste. A personal decision. Besides I have a clothesline to hang the beach towels on.

                      I don't think that's GM's decision as much as the museum's. The museum isn't a garage: they don't have the tools or mechanics needed to do this kind of work.

                        Understand totally, the factory is literally kinda across the street/hwy, why can’t they make the change in final assembly? It’s not like they won’t get paid for doing it and if they want they help change the philosophy that Corvette ownership is a step above and give owners a higher level of service this is a good place to start. Also if I wanted a blue car with blue interior why can’t I get yellow seatbelts? I can get yellow brake calipers but not yellow seatbelts? Why? The parts are there, they can order them for the build? These silly rules don’t make sense?

                          Fair Point. They could charge enough for it to make it worthwhile, I suspect. But I guess GM has a mass-production mentality, and anything that slow down the process isn't viewed favorably.

                            The real carbon fiber high wing package is $3K on the C7 ZR1.

                            $2,995
                            • Stanchion-mounted adjustable carbon fiber high wing
                            • Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport Cup 2 run-flat, summer-only tires1
                            • Performance suspension with specific shocks and springs
                            • Removable carbon fiber end caps for front splitter (Coupe) (For track use only)
                            I'm only interested in the C8 high wing. But I really want it in visible carbon fiber. I hope there will be such an option as there are many visible carbon fiber components available. I'd pay $2k for a visable real CF high wing.

                              Well, that $3K includes a lot more than just the high wing, so I think the high wing alone is going to cost a lot less than that.
