8 Chevrolet Corvette Items You’ll Love To Buy From Amazon
America’s beloved sports car switches to a mid-engine format but the Corvette heritage goes beyond the new 2020 C8by Tudor Rus, on
Let’s face it, America has been in love with the Chevrolet Corvette since day one. But with the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 out of the bag, the love affair has all the chances in the world of getting more effervescent. After all, a mid-engined Vette has been somewhat of a wet dream for Chevy and with that finally turning into reality, the Corvette fanbase is in for an ego boost. Truth is, however, that not all of us will afford the new Corvette C8, even if it’s priced at under $60,000, which is way cheaper than its most notable rivals. Yes, McLarens and Porsches, I am looking at you. So why not celebrate America’s greatest sports car with these cool items you can find on Amazon?

Lego Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
We had to include a Lego gem, don’t you think? Chevrolet has been working together with Lego ever since the first Speed Champions sets hit the stands. Since then, the partnership has stemmed a couple of interesting builds, including a ’69 drag-race-ready classic Camaro and its most modern counterpart, the sixth-generation Camaro. Now, coming back to the topic of interest here, Lego also had its Technic division create a replica of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1that can also be re-built as a hot rod. The undersigned, being a Lego fan and all, got his hands on the Technic Corvette ZR1 and built it in around two hours. The resulting car has a working V-8 engine with working pistons and a front-axle steering. So before Lego decides to offer a mid-engine Corvette made of plastic bits and bobs, this one should sit nicely on your desk or in your kid’s play area. Get it on Amazon for $49.99.

Corvette: Seven Generations of American High Performance
In a world where screens and digital formats are king, why not take a step back to the good old times of book reading with what could potentially be the richest-illustrated trip down the history of the Corvette. Titled “Corvette: Seven Generations of American High Performance,” the book is not only licensed by GM but developed in collaboration with the manufacturer. Its author, historian Randy Leffingwell, has curated hundreds of rare and even unpublished before photos from General Motors’ archive and media library. Bu the best part? The book doesn’t just tell the story of the Corvette, but also touches on the lives and careers of the people behind the sports car, including the likes of Zora Arkus-Duntov and designer Bill Mitchell.

Corvette Leather Embroidered Travel Bag
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 might have room for your golf clubs, but perhaps your family car is more spacious than that. Naturally, your car not being a Corvette should’t stand in the way of practicality and stylish travel, even if it’s just to blow off some steam at the gym (rhyme unintended). The officially licensed duffle bag is made of soft leather decorated with embroidered double-flag Chevy Corvette logos on top and on the sides. Black is the only color you can have it in and size-wise, you’re looking at 20 inches by 10.5 inches by 12 inches. The bag also comes with a padded shoulder carry strap and those who bought it have praised its high quality and sturdy construction. Get it on Amazon for $59.95.
Carbon Fiber Look Steering Wheel Cover
We all know how drastically can just a tad of carbon fiber change a car’s appearance. Unfortunately, the material is still expensive and so are the cars that use genuine carbon fiber bits and bobs. That doesn’t mean you can’t cheat a little, does it? Justautotrim has a cool-looking steering wheel insert that replicates carbon fiber and it is compatible with 2014 to 2018 Chevrolet Corvette C7s. The insert is made of ABS plastic so again, it’s obviously not carbon fiber, but looks pretty much like carbon fiber. You’ll also have to stick it yourself using the 3M tapes (don’t worry, they’re provided in the box), so whenever you get bored of it, just remove it as you would remove a band aid, since you won’t have to take anything off your Vette’s steering wheel to install it. Get it on Amazon for $59.99.
The Art of the Corvette
Yes, another book. But this time, you’ll be looking at two dozen Corvettes from a unique perspective. In the “Art of the Corvette,” Randy Leffingwell and Tom Loeser start another masterpiece with the first 1953 Blue Flame Six Corvette only to end it with the 2014 Corvette Stingray. This way, you’ll get your Chevy Corvette game to the next level just in time to celebrate the arrival of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8. The pictures you’ll see in the but are created using the technique called light-painting, allowing you to focus on curvy details that are otherwise thrown into isolation by regular photos. The path that stretches over 200+ Corvette photos is guided by one of the world’s most respected Corvette historians, who will unravel the secrets of models such as the 1966 Stingray L72 coupe, 1969 L71 convertible, and 2012 ZR1. It goes without saying, this is yet another top-notch coffee table book. Get it on Amazon for $31.26 (hardcover).
