Last year, Chevrolet unveiled the eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette C8, with a radical new design and a mid-engine placement. And while they haven’t been on the road for very long, it’s already time for the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette, which maintains its original starting prices of $59,995 for the coupe and $67,495 for the convertible.
Despite the price remaining the same, the 2021 Corvette receives a host of new features, options, and new exterior paint color options and racing stripe packages. And while they haven’t released many photos, from what we can see, there’s a lot to get excited about!
First off, lets talk about the 2021 Corvette’s new paint colors. Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat and Silver Flare Metallic join the existing color palatte, which includes Accelerate Yellow, Rapid Blue, Zeus Bronze, Artic White, Black, Blade Silver, Ceramic Matrix Gray, Elkhart Lake Blue, Long Beach Red, Sebring Orange, Shadow Gray, and Torch Red.
You can see Red Mist Metallic in the (crappy) photo at the top of the page, and Silver Flare Metallic on the right in the photo above. Both colors look very striking, and I think these are going to be popular choices. In addition, you can now get a bold new interior color of Sky Cool Gray/Yellow Strike. No idea what that might look like, but it sounds.. interesting.
Taking it a step further, Chevrolet is offering the Corvette with Full Length Dual Racing Stripes in either Blue, Orange, or Red and Yellow, or Stinger Stripes in Carbon Flash/Edge Red, Carbon Flash/Edge Yellow and Carbon Flash/Midnight Silver. While they haven’t released any photos, you can see peeks of them in the Twitter post below:

As for other goodies, the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette receives awireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Buckle To Drive, driver mode on-screen visualization and a new track digital tachometer standard. In addition, magnetic selective ride control suspension is now available independently from the Z51 performance package.
Outside of that, everything else remains the same.
