The 2020 Corvette C8 is replete with customization options. Previously, we took a look at the various roof and nacelle colors offered on the new mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, the spoiler options, the Coupe roof panel options and exterior paint color options. Now, we’re getting up close and personal with the corners of the new Vette, specifically the various brake caliper colors.
Customers have four different brake caliper colors to choose from, one of which is standard, and three of which are offered as optional equipment. Each of the optional colors adds $595 to the 2020 Corvette’s final price.
The four brake caliper colors are listed as (RPO code included in parentheses):
- Black-painted, standard (J6A)
- Bright Red-painted, optional (J6F)
- Edge Red-painted, optional (J6N)
- Yellow-painted, optional (J6E)
For reference, the 2020 Corvette is equipped with front and rear E-boost-assisted disc brakes, which are squeezed by Brembo four-piston/two-piece calipers in front and four-piston/monobloc calipers in the rear. Rotor sizing is measured at 12.6 inches by 1.18 inches (321 mm by 30 mm) in front, and 13.6 inches by 1.02 inches (339 mm by 26 mm) in the rear.
Upgrade to the Z51 Performance Package and the 2020 Corvette gains front and rear E-boost-assisted disc brakes with Brembo four-piston monobloc calipers front to rear. Brake rotor sizing is upped to 13.3 inches by 1.18 inches (345 mm by 30 mm) in front, and 13.8 inches by 1.06 inches (350 mm by 27 mm) in the rear.
Of course, that leaves us wondering – which of these brake caliper colors would you opt for in your own 2020 Corvette?
