They exist. I installed a set last month on my neighbor’s new ZR1. I’ll ask where he bought them.

The ZR1 does not have spats. You must be thinking of a different part.

They were for a Z06. The mounting points are the same on a ZR1. Supposedly the ZR1 doesnít need them. However he wanted to error on the side of potential paint protection. We installed them on all 4 corners of the ZR1.

Even on the rear fenders? Any pics? That has to look pretty odd.

OP - Apsis sells full carbon fiber spats that cover the full front wheel well and RPI sells the APR Carbon Fiber spats similar to the OEM style.

It looks pretty much like the Z06 to me. I like it. If memory serves, they stick out an inch and a half or so closest to the ground and about half an inch at the top. You almost do not see them.

That's not a spat. That's the rear rock protectors. Big difference. The Spats are at the top of the fenders on a Z06 and GS

I enjoyed the license plate. I wonder how many people are old enough to understand the E ticket reference

Those are the rear GM splash guards. Not sure if anyone offers those in Carbon Fiber as itís such a small piece. Below is a pic of the Carbon Fiber spats the OP asked about.
