All Coupe models bound for the production line come standard with carbon fiber trim surrounding the mid-mounted 6.2-liter V8. Convertible versions will be equipped with a small transparent panel in the engine bay so owners can see the V8 when opening and closing the roof.

The 20 units in Red Mist Metallic Tint Coat come standard with full-length dual racing stripes and 5-spoke aluminum wheels painted in Carbon Flash. Other features include red brake calipers and a light beige upholstery for the interior. Chevy has also fitted the GT2 bucket seats and the stealth interior trim package.
