The 2023 Corvette drops in as the fourth model year for the eighth-generation Corvette C8, introducing a variety of changes and updates over the previous 2022 model year. Notably, the 2023 Corvette is now available with the Visible Carbon Fiber door intake trim accessory.
The Visible Carbon Fiber door intake trim is tagged with RPO code RYQ, and is available as an LPO-level Genuine Corvette Accessory for the 2023 Corvette Stingray. LPO-level means the piece is installed by the dealer, rather than at the factory when the vehicle is initially produced.
The RYQ Visible Carbon Fiber door intake trim is offered for the top 3LT trim level of the C8 Stingray, and is optional for both the Coupe and Convertible body style. The piece cannot be ordered in conjunction with the body-color exterior accents (RPO code EFY).
The Visible Carbon Fiber door intake trim includes a handcrafted carbon fiber design, and is precision engineered to fit the Corvette C8 Stingray, offering high strength and durability while adding a splash of custom, race-inspired design flair to the vehicle. Pricing is set at $3,195.
Notably, the RYQ Visible Carbon Fiber door intake trim was previously announced for the 2022 Corvette, but was never made available as a result of supplier constraints. Now, however, the accessory is finally available for the 2023 Corvette.
Critically, the 2023 Corvette is now available with the Visible Carbon Fiber High Wing Spoiler aero option as well, per previous GM Authority coverage. Like the RYQ Visible Carbon Fiber door intake trim, the Visible Carbon Fiber High Wing Spoiler aero option was previously announced for the 2022 Corvette Stingray, but was never actually offered available due to supplier constraints.
As a reminder, the 2023 Corvette C8 once again cradles the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine for motivation, with peak output rated at 490 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Under the body panels, the C8 rides on the GM Y2 platform, while production takes place exclusively at the GM bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
