One of the various aerodynamic pieces that separate the C7 Corvette Z06 and Corvette Grand Sport from the regular Corvette Stingray are the front fender extensions, which are the tiny black plastic wickers attached to the two front wheel arches.
ACS Composite, which manufactures various aftermarket body parts for the Corvette model line, says that C7 Corvette Z06 and Grand Sport owners have contacted them in the past complaining that no company makes rear fender extensions to match the front set. To be clear, Chevrolet does not ship the C7 Corvette Z06 or Grand Sport with rear fender extensions, so it seems as though some owners wanted to balance the look of the car out with an aftermarket pair. ACS Composite was more than happy to oblige these Corvette owners, releasing its own set of rear quarter extensions on its website.
“One of the biggest complaints we get from Z06 and Grand Sport owners is the lack of a matching fender extension for the rear wheel,” ACS Composite says on its web store. “Inspired by the front Z06 fender extensions, we answered the call and ported over the extensions to the rear of the C7 Corvette.“
“The extensions will provide that missing protection along the inside paint surfaces. Now, you will have cohesive coverage and aesthetics front to back!”
ACS Composite is charging $499 USD for a pair of these rear quarter extensions, which come finished in Carbon Flash to match the rest of the exterior trim that comes on the C7 Corvette Z06 and Grand Sport. The fenders snap onto the rear fenders and bolt in using the existing OEM screws for the rear deflector section. Double-sided tape is used to seal the surface of the deflectors as well.
