Spoilers are an immensely helpful modification for your Corvette, particularly if you plan on taking it to a test track. If not, you might be interested for the sheer aesthetic and sporty look it provides. No matter why you want a Corvette spoiler, there is an aftermarket part available for your body style.
Spoilers are an ingenious solution for the problem that results from a combination of high speed and light weight: lift. As your Corvette is engineered to be as light as possible and capable of achieving high speeds, its body acts as a foil to lift it upward, particularly on turns. Spoilers disrupt this aerodynamic effect, directing flowing air to push the rear of the car down toward the road.
Deciding whether you want a spoiler for a sporty aesthetic or for its functional capabilities is the main decision you must make when choosing a mod for your Corvette. If you only care about the aesthetic quality of your spoiler, opt for a kit that resembles a factory spoiler. These are streamlined and rise only slightly above the profile of the car.
To be effective in addition to stylish, a spoiler must be capable of providing a downward push. This requires elevation from the car's profile so there is room for air to flow around the spoiler. If this is your aim, opt for a high, wing-style spoiler.
When you buy a new spoiler, look for a paint-matched part. These incorporate well into the existing aesthetic without the need to repaint the car. Both low-profile and high-wing spoilers come in a variety of paint colors and shapes to accommodate your specific Corvette type, whether it is a C3 or a brand-new C7.
