When Chevrolet set out to design the C7 Stingray, and subsequently the C7 Z06, one of their goals was to attract a new portion of the sports car market. Specifically, they were looking to attract some younger, performance oriented buyers, all while retaining their loyal, existing customer base.

A thin line is walked when trying to capture new marketshare without alienating your valued clients. The C7 may have turned a few fans away–we all know you hate the taillights–but it ultimately captured many more. The updated, high-performance Corvette has also attracted more aftermarket attention from both of those in the businesses of adding horsepower, and changing vehicle aesthetics. Aerodynamics are one of those cool aspects of a vehicle that can add both an increase in performance and some truly awesome styling.

This C7 Z06 is heavily outfitted in performance carbon fiber accessories.

APR Performance has created some great looking variations of the C7 Stingray, and now they have laid their carbon fiber infused paint brushes upon the C7 Z06. Adding both form and function, is a complete line of carbon fiber accessories from the guys at APR, and we think they look outstanding. Odds are that a C7 Z06 will rarely pass another on the open highway, but if you’re looking for something to set your car aside at the next car show or meet, this may be it.

We had the opportunity to speak directly to those in charge of marketing at APR and they wanted to let you know the following, “APR Performance design meets race-proven technology, making the C7 light, lean, and aggressive. Impressive exterior carbon fiber aero components create downforce to keep the vehicle planted, while functional carbon fiber vents help reduce heat and minimize drag. Our advanced pre-preg carbon fiber, vacuum-bagged autoclave forming is able to give the final product durability and extremely high strength-to-weight ratios. Products are finished with UV protected clear coat to give our products a brilliant shine. Everything is designed to factory specifications for an OEM fit and finish.”

If you’re looking for that next step in aesthetics and performance, here is a list of the C7 ZO6 aerodynamic performance products that are now available for purchase:

– Carbon Fiber 3-piece Front Splitter / Air Dam with Under-tray
– Carbon Fiber Bumper Canards / Spats (fits APR Performance Front Splitter / Airdam)

While the parts listed above certainly help, some people out there may be looking to optimize their on-track aerodynamics. You can find additional carbon products here that are geared more for racing applications, such as the aggressive rear wing shown below. The contact information for APR Performance is listed below.
