    THere will still be plenty of them out there 2nd hand by then. ZB and Yellow will be harder to find.

    IF I look for a used C8 in a few years for autocross/track use, it will likely be SGM.

      I 3rd that emotion! We should go to that same Wendy's when my AYM gets delivered in a few weeks.
      AY is misunderstood. It glows without any light.
      I continue to underestimate the loyalty to Torch Red. I thought for sure that Red Mist would crush it once seen out in the wild. The Ferrari world saw a lean towards Corsa Metallic from the traditional Corsa Red.
      Atomic Orange on the C6 is a killer color.

        I like the loud colors in sports cars.

        Mclearn has the color chart. Exciting colors. UnBritish array, but still it is. And in Variety.

        After the Torch Red , the Sebring Orange is my favorite C8. But: When I first saw the Sebring Orange it was with black wheels and the grayish-white seats. That did not appeal. Trim means everything.

        The Black wheels are popular. So they need to be offered. But to my biased eye the black wheels destroy any paint scheme on any brand.

          Yes, McLaren does. With their having about 30 choices, that of course helps.

            Another vote for Riverside Gold. I am sorry my namesake is going way as Shadow Gray Metallic is why I chose my forum name.

              I was talking with a GM of one of forum dealership vendors (not one of the largest ones) just before the info became public, and he said, “Corvette people are very passionate about even the slightest color changes. I hope the new three are exciting to many.”

                I'm not the least bit surprised in Zeus Bronze and Shadow Gray Metallic going away, I liken that to the old colors like the C7 green not many purchased. It's a bit of a shock that Sebring is going away. The brighter colors definitely appeal to the younger generation that GM has targeted with the C8. I can't wait to see what the replacement colors are.

                  The three new C8 colors are already known by their internal code names. If production starts in August/ Sept. we will be hearing the actual new color names very soon.

                    I would love to see black rose come back. I think that would look amazing on there. Night Race blue too, but there's already 2 blues. I'm guessing there will be some silver/gray color... possibly the C8R color and some other Orange hue. The ZB replacement.... that's a great question.
                    Hello,

                    I agree! I had a 2015 Night Race Blue which I traded for a 2017 Black Rose...both beautiful colors.

                    The 2017 Black Rose was traded 16 months after deposit for my 2020 CMG Coupe sitting in my
                    garage with only 700 miles on it.

                    While I loved both C7s, my C8 is unquestionably my favorite of all I have owned.

                      In addition to the new colors, I'd love to see an option where coupe customers can get the top painted carbon flash. I love the look of the carbon flash nacelles on the HTC and have seen many example of coupe owners doing a wrap to get the same look. As wraps only last so long, having it painted carbon flash from the factory would be sweet!

                        I'd love to see Black Rose return one of these days 👍

                          I absolutely love Black Rose, but those who have never had and tried to maintain in a pristine fashion a dark colored vehicle, maintaining Black Rose is not 1% less arduous than maintaining a black car. Having noted that, GM please bring back Black Rose!

                            With these exterior color choices do they also change up some of the interior color choices?

                              +1 on that.... but at the same time, I fear that Kim would see that and say "OOOOOOOOOOOOO we need one of those now"... lol

                                That is an excellent question. In the C7 gen they did make a couple of interior changes through its entire six year life. My guess is that they will make the same small amount during the C8 gen but whether there’s any change for 2022 interiors is the excellent question Cobia384 has posed.

                                I believe we would learn that answer the same time as GM announces the three new exterior colors, e.g., most probably (but not definitively) at the April 20-22 NCM Bash.
