2020 Chevy Corvette Now Getting Zora Graphic On Windshield
If we’ve learned anything about Corvette owners over the years, it’s that they love the neat little things. Now there is a new detail for 2020 Corvette owners to be excited about. Or rather, 2020 owners who get their cars late in the race might be excited. Early C8 buyers might just get jealous.
Take a close look at the windshield of the late-race 2020 Corvettes and you’ll see a man’s head in the lower passenger side corner, with Corvette team appearing in the driver’s side corner. This discovery was recently made by Kerbeck Chevrolet in New Jersey on a recently delivered C8. Kerbeck is the largest Corvette dealer in the world, so they regularly see new ‘Vettes’, and this new Easter Egg was found on the highest model they’ve seen so far.

We were curious about this addition and reached out to General Motors to find out more. A spokesperson has confirmed that this is a recently added item to the C8 and will appear on all Corvettes in the future.
Of course, the little head is in the image of Zora Arkus-Duntov. Widely regarded as the father of the Corvette, he injected serious performance into the C1 and C2 models during his tenure at GM and encouraged the original idea of a mid-engined version of the sports car. It will take more than half a century for his vision to finally materialize in a production model, and Chevrolet certainly wants to give credit where credit is due. We’ve seen Zora’s likeness incorporated into the camouflage wrap of the C8 test vehicles, and the ultimate 1000-horsepower version of the C8 is expected to be named after her as the Corvette Zora.
Perhaps a more important question now is: How are Corvette enthusiasts going to accept that the early C8s didn’t have that Zora branded windshield? We suspect there will be owners who covet the windshield for sure, but knowing that it will be offered on all Corvettes in the future, first production cars could have a nice bump in the community similar to the split window C2 from 1963. In the end, only time will tell the story.
