Sadly, Chevrolet doesn’t sell a customer version of its new mid-engine Corvette C8.R race car. But this official car cover might be the next best thing.
If you’re a C8 Corvette owner desperate to live out your IMSA fantasies, Chevrolet will sell you this C8.R-themed indoor car cover, cut to fit your 2020 Corvette Stingray. Featuring the yellow paint scheme, silver stripes, red mirror caps, and sponsor logos from the real #3 car, it’s about as close as anyone outside the Corvette Racing program is able to get to owning a C8.R.
According to the Chevrolet Accessories website, the cover was designed for indoor use, for protection against dust and debris. It’s made with a “layer of micro-porous film and an inner cotton layer for breathable protection,” and even includes a storage bag for when you’re out enjoying your car on the road.
The catch? It’s expensive. Chevy’s charging $1195 plus tax to ship you a C8.R car cover of your own. That’s more than twice as expensive as the other, less exciting C8 indoor covers it offers, though strangely, it’s $10 cheaper than the C7.R-themed cover.
