The C5, C6, and C7 Corvette all featured center exhausts but for the C8, Chevrolet’s designers took a more conservative approach with dual tailpipes on either side of the diffuser. However, for C8 owners that want a center exhaust system, a company by the name of Aerolarri has the solution.
In addition to selling a plethora of aerodynamic upgrades for the mid-engined Corvette, the tuner has also developed a center exhaust that doesn’t just look the part but also sounds the part too.
Aerolarri’s center exhaust for the C8 is priced at $2,988 and can be customized with a plethora of options. As standard, it comes with blue tips but buyers can choose between four different stainless steel/carbon fiber tips priced at $499. Alternatively, customers are also offered the option of full carbon fiber tips for $999 as well as mufflers that reduce the exhaust sound by about 20 per cent for $480.
The company’s exhaust is made in Idaho from a single piece of stainless steel and fitting it requires a small section of the car’s standard rear bumper to be cut and mesh to be installed where the standard tailpipes used to be. No details have been provided if the new exhaust system has an impact on performance.
Given the popularity of the C8 Corvette, it’s hardly a surprise that many tuning companies are developing upgrades for it. Aftermarket exhausts are a thing, as are twin-turbo conversions, while there are also some pretty wild bodykits in the works.
