This aggressive front splitter is the perfect way to give the C7 some more attitude.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 coupe has been a resounding success and people are seemingly willing to pay way above sticker price for the privilege of owning the popular mid-engine sports car. But even though the C8 is more capable and much faster than its C7 predecessor, the latter car remains highly desirable. It still cuts a pretty figure with its classic front-engine proportions and an especially long hood. For many tuners, the C7 remains an exciting car to enhance and that's exactly what ACS Composite is doing with the release of a new C7 ZR1 front splitter.
Derived from the splitter that was part of the original ZR1 aero package, ACS's splitter has been tweaked for roadworthiness for the Stingray, Grand Sport, and Z06 models. The splitter has integrated side winglets, a fully reinforced bottom, and what the tuner says is its largest-ever surface area for such a part. The company released a detailed video demonstrating how to fit the splitter, using a Z06. The best part is that while other similar wings have necessitated the fitment of a ZR1 front bumper, this piece can be fitted to any C7.
Coated in a Carbon Flash Black metallic finish, it looks absolutely fantastic and gives the C7 a much more aggressive look. The PC Composite material ensures excellent heat and scratch resistance.
If you're concerned about ground clearance, ACS has taken this into consideration too. This new splitter provides greater clearance than the stage 2 or stage 3 splitter equipped to the Z06, so this is a solid option even if you have a steeper driveway. ACS has used existing OEM mounting points and holes if you intend to replace an existing splitter, so in that case, no additional drilling will be required. A Primer finish is on offer for customers who want to have the splitter painted themselves as well as a matte Satin Black finish. Overall, it's a great way to give the older C7 a lift and the part will cost you $1,149.
