C8 Corvette customers eager to add a dash of custom style to their new mid-engine sports car will be happy to learn that the 2023 Corvette is once again available to order with Edge Red brake calipers.
Just last month, GM Authority reported that the 2023 Corvette Stingray and 2023 Corvette Z06 were unavailable to order with the optional Edge Red painted brake calipers due to a supplier issue. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that optional Edge Red calipers are no longer under constraint.
For those readers who may be unaware, the Edge Red painted brake calipers are tagged with RPO code J6N, and are offered on all trim levels for the 2023 Corvette Stingray and 2023 Corvette Z06, including both the Coupe and Convertible body styles. The Edge Red painted brake calipers are also included with the 70th Anniversary Special Edition package (RPO code Y70). Pricing for the Edge Red calipers is set at $695 across the board.
Although the Edge Red painted brake calipers are once again available to order, the 2023 Corvette is still facing myriad constraints and supply chain issues. For example, GM is no longer taking sold orders for the 2023 Corvette Z06 as of early September, per previous GM Authority coverage. Production for the mid-engine super car was heavily constrained as of August, but supplier setbacks deteriorated even further and it is now unclear if GM will take any new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 sold orders in the future, or if The General will instead opt to wait until the 2024 model year.
As a reminder, the 2023 Corvette Stingray features the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, while 2023 Corvette Z06 features the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine. Both models ride on the GM Y2 platform, while production takes place exclusively at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
