It’s amazing what a nice set of aftermarket wheels can do for a car, even a ride as eye-catching as the new mid-engine C8 Corvette. Such is the case with this particular eighth-gen Vette, which rocks a black-and-yellow color combo thanks to Accelerate Yellow paint and Vossen HF-5 wheels.
Coming to us from the official Vossen Wheels Instagram feed, the photos show the C8 Corvette from multiple angles, giving us a good look at the style it brings with the fresh rollers.
The optional premium Accelerate Yellow Metallic paint is priced at $500, blessing the Coupe with an eye-searing aesthetic that’s sure to get noticed no matter where it goes. Various trim bits offset the yellow coloring with a black finish, including the side intake “boomerangs,” the rear spoiler, and the sideview mirrors. And of course, the new aftermarket wheels are finished in black as well.
The wheels are Vossen’s HF-5 design from the company’s Hybrid Forged Series. The spokes get a split-Y layout with a technical look that perfectly fits the mid-engine profile of the new C8 Corvette. The rollers are staggered in terms of size, set at 19 inches in front and 20 inches in the rear, with a Matte Gunmetal finish. Under the rollers, we spot Edge Yellow-painted brake calipers, which are offered for an extra $595, and work nicely with the Accelerate Yellow exterior paint.
Pricing for Vossen’s HF-5 wheels starts at $549 apiece, with diameter sizing available between 19 to 22 inches, and width sizing available in 8.5 to 12 inches. Both flat and deep profiles are offered. Matte Gunmetal and Gloss Black are included as standard colors, while custom colors include Satin Silver, Anthracite, Satin Black, Satin Bronze, and Gloss Black.
