In July, we got a taste of what the 2020 Corvette C8 has to offer with regard to optional extras thanks to the online configurator for the all-new model. Now, we have something even better, as GM Authority has obtained an official list of the 2020 Corvette accessories, down to the RPO codes.

Exterior accessories include everything from two new wheel choices and stripes to accents and aero bits. It certainly makes sense to load up on aesthetics options considering the 2020 Corvette starts under the $60,000 mark. With a price like that, we’re likely to see a lot of C8s on the roads, and owners will want to feel like they have some recourse in making theirs unique.
It’s also worth noting that many of these exterior options recall those offered by the previous-generation Chevrolet Corvette C7. For example, the center cap options, transparent roof panel and multiple aero bits were available on the C7.
|Cargo New Set||W2D|
|Collapsible Cargo Organizer with Crossed Flags Logo||RWU|
|Illuminated Sill Plate with Stingray Logo*||VST|
|Premium Carpeted Floor Mats with Corvette Silhouette||VYW|

By contrast, interior accessories are more limited, featuring only practicality and a few dress-up pieces. Over time, we definitely expect this list to expand, including additional material options and extra infotainment goodies.
|Battery Protection Package with Crossed Flags Logo||5WF|
|First Aid Kit with Crossed Flags Logo||RYT|
|Highway Safety Kit with Crossed Flags Logo||S08|
|Premium Indoor Car Cover in Black with Crossed Flags Logo||RWH|
|Premium Indoor Car Cover in Black with Crossed Flags Logo and Access Panels||WKQ|
|Premium Indoor Car Cover in Red with Stingray Logo||SL1|
|Premium Outdoor Car Cover in Black with Crossed Flags Logo and Corvette Silhouette||RWJ|
|Premium Outdoor Car Cover in Black with Stingray Logo and Access Panels||RNX|
|Rear Fascia Protector with Crossed Flags Logo||VTB|
|Roof Panel Storage Bag in Black with Crossed Flags Logo||SC7|
The security and protection options are all heavily branded with the Corvette logo, from the first aid kit, to the car covers, and the roof panel storage bag. We’re definitely digging the roof storage bag – with the ability to quickly swap the roof panel for one of three panels on offer, while keeping the removed panel protected while stored. And if one just wants to remove (rather than swap) the roof panel temporarily, then one can simply store it in the rear cargo area.
|Premium Leather Travel Bag (Set of 2 Available)||S03|
