I checked, and there does not seem to be a thread for the StingRay roofs, so I am starting one now.

There are three roof types, and multiple combinations which can be ordered (however, many of those combinations are on constraint now). Please check the constraints thread for up-to-date details.

There is a body-colored carbon fiber roof which weighs only 16 lbs. It is called "CFA" and comes standard with any StingRay trim level.

There is a transparent roof made of polycarbonate plastic (correction: thanks, glen e!) which weighs 21 lbs (thanks, Art!). It is called "CC3", replaces the CFA, and comes with a $995 up-charge.

There is an exposed carbon fiber roof which also weighs only 16lbs. It is called "C2Z". It is similar to CFA, and made of the same material. The difference is that the samples which become C2Z instead of CFA are the pick of the crop and have carbon fiber weaves which came out of manufacturing so "visually" flawless that they can be exposed instead of painted over. The only body-colored paint on these exposed carbon fiber roofs are along the two edges over the doors. If you choose C2Z, it replaces CFA, and comes with a premium $1,995 up-charge since they are more rare.

There are also two different "dual roof" packages available.

The first is the "Body-Color Dual Roof" package called "C2Q" which consists of receiving two roofs: CFA plus CC3. It comes with a $1,995 up-charge.

The last option is an exposed "Carbon Fiber Dual Roof" package called "C2M" which consists of two roofs: C2Z plus CC3. It comes with a $2,995 up-charge.

In summary:
CFA -> No additional charge.
CC3 -> $995.
C2Z -> $1,995.
CFA+CC3=C2Q -> $1,995.
C2Z+CC3=C2M -> $2,995.

I hope this thread can be expanded by those of you with pictures to share! Also, if anyone knows how much the transparent roof weighs, please let me know and I will add that (or if you are a moderator, please add it, or any corrections you know of, to this post).

Finally, if you have any helpful comments, or questions, about roofs on the StingRay coupe, post away.

Cheers! -Rodney

P.S. I hope I don't really need to remind people, but I know we will disagree with what options we may choose for ourselves. What is right for someone else may not be right for you. Let's please respect the decisions of our fellow forum members, and keep this thread as a positive source of information, pictures, helpful tips, etc. Thank you!

and I'll add this for proper maintenance:

painted roof =whatever sealant/wax you like - it's clear coat paint
the other two - clear and embedded carbon fiber = PLEXUS is great stuff - look for it on Amazon...

Here is a Youtube video on how to remove, stow, and reinstall a C7 roof panel:

I am thinking of getting the transparent roof. For those of you in very sunny areas, what do you do to shade your interior on those days you need it?

I had a clear glass roof on a C5 here in North Carolina and it was too hot to use more than 1 or two months a year.
I did not order the clear roof for my C7. If I wish to see the sky I will just remove the roof.

I have the body standard roof panel now, but I I'm thinking about ordering the transparent roof. Does anyone know how much it will cost to order one from the dealer?

It is not 995 at the dealer...when you order one as an option from BG, you are giving up a body color roof in exchange, so it's less - it is $1250 at the dealer....

What if you want both? I'm not giving up the body color roof

Hmm, I will go to the dealership next weekend and ask.
Please post what you find out from your dealer.

Glen, the $1,250 that you listed, is that what some dealer is charging, or is that dealer cost? Is that plus tax, or tax already included? Thank you!

Derrick, hopefully the first post in this thread can answer some of your questions.

a friend of mine ordered one thru the parts dept of his dealer, he usually gets some discount - he paid $1250 - all I know....

That seems a little light considering the Stock + Clear roof option is $1995 when you order the car. That would seem to indicate the clear roof is $1995 since it's in addition to the stock roof. If you can buy it after the fact from the parts counter for $1250 then why order it with the car? I'm not saying your friend didn't get it for that price, just that the discount he may have gotten seems a lot more than most dealers will offer customers.

That's why TWO different salesmen suggested I order with the body color roof. $1250 is STILL way cheaper than paying the $1995 for both roofs from the factory. Plus, with the transparent constraints, it was a wise choice. They also mentioned that carbon fiber "paints" differently and I'd be sure to get a perfect match from the factory versus ordering one later. I'll be ordering the transparent roof as soon as I take delivery. ;-) Thanks Rick "Corvette" Conti!
