Chevrolet Sells A Cover That’ll Let Your Corvette Dream Of Racing Circuits

The Chevrolet Corvette is an incredible sports car that can decimate supercars around a track when properly spec’d. Despite all of the aerodynamic bits and performance components, though, it’s not a race car. Chevy, though, has something that will fix that.

On Chevrolet’s configuration site for the Corvette, there’s something interesting: an indoor cover that makes the sports car look like the C7.R race car.

The “Premium Indoor Vehicle Cover” costs $1,205, which is a little pricey, but will fool lots of people, at least from a little distance, because of the immaculate attention to detail.

The cover features a fully-rendered image of the automaker’s C7.3 Corvette GT racer. Even the tiniest details are included in the cover, including the race car’s side exhaust pipes and hood pins.

The only thing that’s missing from the cover is something for Corvettes that are equipped with a large wing, like the 755-HP ZR-1. It’ll be interesting to see if Chevrolet offers the special indoor cover on that model. Since Chevy hasn’t come out with a configurator for the ZR1 yet, there’s no way of knowing.

When the C7.R cover isn’t being used, it comes with a duffle-style storage bag to keep it neat and tidy. This may seem like a gimmick, but it’s a neat accessory and we’d love to see more automakers offering something similar.

      Like twice failed Presidential candidate that start with an ‘H.’ Twos!

      Except Corvette’s have dominated on the track, beating Porsches and Ferraris costing several times as much.

      I mean, they won their GTLM last year… and they did worse last year at Daytona than this year… I wouldnt count corvette out after the 1st race

    Too expensive but it’s cool.

    • Moveon Libtards

      Not bad price compared to German and Italian car covers. Most covers are expensive.

  • Bo Hanan

    Why didn’t the new ZR1 have that body?

  • LeStori

    Decimate in the modern context, not in the historical methinks. . So the other super cars are destroyed and not usable ever again if they are on the same track as the Chevy. Sounds like the Chevy might be a Tank.

  • That’s an eye watering price… Someone should buy it and see if the final products looks like what they advertised.

    • Shahul Usman

      I would for my C7 grand sport, but that price…

      • And we don’t know the quality either, I know some covers can be expensive with all the materials that they use.
