Would you go with the sky gray two tone interior and red mist?
        I like John’s comment about the Natural/Black being the best choice, I agree. My issue with the Sky Cool Gray seats is that with the perforations for the venting, they look dirty. I guess I would have to see the adrenaline red with the red mist exterior, it might work just fine. I’m ordering the Tension Blue/Twilight Blue 2-tone interior with the Elkhart Lake Blue exterior and some people think that they clash, I disagree. Click image for larger version

          I edited GM's pic of the Red Mist so the shadows aren't so dark. Seen this way, I REALLY like it.

          Does anyone recognize the driver?

            It’s interesting how the Tension Blue interior doesn’t look aqua at all when it’s in a Rapid Blue car but when you put it in an Elkhart Lake Blue car it suddenly looks aqua or turquoise.

              Thanks. Nice picture of the 2 blues together, they are hard to find.

              Yes, the seats certainly do look more aqua against the ELB. I still think it looks good though. The Tension blue gives the interior a different look, dare I say “exotic”, lol.

                Falcon - I thought the same thing when I saw the ELB C8 in Pasco this past spring. To be fair, there's no telling how many posteriors had been seated in the seat during the display in Pasco, let alone wherever the car had been before. That said, if you like the Sky Cool Gray, and don't want that dirty/perf effect, you can select the 2 tone seats option ($395, I think) that have the black leather where the perfs are, like this:

                  I think that is the best choice when going with the Sky Cool Gray too. I didn’t want the black seating surface here in Texas, just too hot if it’s been in the sun. That being said, the “Twilight Blue” seating surface is very dark as well, so probably not much difference. The 2-tone blue has just kind of grown on me. I’m looking forward to the somewhat wild look; flashy car, flashy interior.

                    I get it... I had black vinyl in a '72 and any sunny day would have you putting the top up anytime you weren't in the car. Also, on the 2-tone blue, a buddy reminded me that if I ordered it to not forget to order the tension blue seat belts as well.

                      It should be automatic. From the order guide:

                      Seat belt color, Tension Blue
                      1 - Not available with (HUQ, HU7, HUL, HUR) Adrenaline Red interiors.
                      2 - Not available with (HU2, HUA, HUU, HZP) Adrenaline Red interiors or (HU3) Morello Red Dipped interior. Included with (HTO) Tension/Twilight Blue Dipped interior

                        Natural with black goes well with most colors, including reds. My current vette is that.

                        For red mist, I'm leaning strongly toward black with yellow stitching and yellow seat belts along with the yellow calipers to round out the accent colors. I want a bit of pop in the interior, but the AR would be too much with the red exterior.
                        Atomic Orange C6. Plenty of engine and suspension mods.

                              This color looks a lot more stunning that I thought it would. The car looks almost metal plated, like red anodized aluminum, and really shows off the lines. Very modern looking, too.

                                No injuries at all thankfully. Off duty cop had his child in the car but all were all right. Worked out good for me as insurance bought me my first Z06, a 2008 Crystal Red (another great color) 427 Wil Cooksey Edition.
