  • Best color for resale?

    Since I'm an old fart. I'm buying my C8 to scratch an itch. i plan on keeping it for a couple years, then sell it. So, my 2 color choices are Black or Yellow.

    Which color is best for quick sale? Or does it matter?

    I don't think it would matter too much, you'll have folks that want either one. Me personally, I would prefer red or blue. Black is notoriously hard to care for and yellow is a color that has less "lovers" of, IMO.

    Again, you can find buyers at market value at the time you sell no matter the color. Somewhere on here someone posted the hottest selling colors new, I would imagine that would hold true for resale as well. If red is the hottest selling new it would probably be the hottest selling used as well.
    On Order: 2LT Coupe, Z51, Elkhart Lake Blue, GT2 seats, Edge Red Calipers, Mag Ride, Front Lift, High Wing spoiler, R8C museum delivery.

      The best color is the one you personally like the best! Who cares what someone else likes.... it's your car.

        You must ask the person you are buying the car for. Or selling the car to.

              If I had to think about resale, I would use the sales statistics Harlan communicated on the 2020 and 2021 orders showing which were the most popular features and colors.

              I buy what I like and what would give me the most enjoyment when I drive it. Luckily my tastes are in line with a lot of other car enthusiasts so I don't have problems selling.

                Speaking of exterior colors...will the new Amplify Orange be a "premium" (i.e., additional cost) color like Sebring Orange was?

                  Historically GM has charged a premium for tintocoat (3-stage) colors of $995 —such as is the current situation with Red Mist. But Amplify Orange is not one.

                  Sometimes however there has also been a $500 premium for other colors, e.g. Rapid Blue and Accelerate Yellow metallic.

                  My guess is that Amplify will be a $500 premium. Perhaps Hypersonic might also be that premium of $500.

                    For the C8, I"m not sure it matters. But one recent report showed yellow cars retain the highest percentage of their original price.

                    But there was another study I saw that said yellow is one of the worst colors, so who knows. Buy what you like and let resale fall where it may. If you can afford to buy a C8 and flip it in a couple of years, a price difference of a couple of thousand bucks shouldn't really matter.

                      IMO...of the two you've asked about, black would have far more interested prospects, assuming you kept it really nice.
                      '64 Silver Grey Coupe (custom paint)- still our favorite
                      '77 Black L82 / 4SPD
                      '78 Silver Anniversary L82 / 4SPD
                      '13 White/Blue Diamond 427 60th roadster - favorite late model
                      '14 Black Z51 Coupe
                      '15 Shark Grey Z51 Coupe

                          I agree with pksjc above. If you want to plan for a resale (which is entirely your right) and have the best chance of selling it quickly and for the maximum dollar, you're best to "play the odds" and have an exterior color that's more popular amongst your prospective buyers. Sure you'll find someone who likes a less popular color but statistically you'll have reduced odds of finding that buyer. Traditionally the top 3 colors have usually been red, white and black and the 2020 C8 most purchased colors repeated that same pattern: red (25%), white (15%) and black (12%). I suspect the final 2021 colors will have similar stats although there might be a split between Torch Red and Red Mist, given the popularity of the Red Mist. Time will tell but given the 2 colors you're suggesting, like George I think black is your safest bet.

                          But remember, the C8 looks good in ANY COLOR...given the car's lines/design...and perhaps more importantly, it'll drive the same regardless of the color and it's the drive that should be the main factor which captures the true car enthusiast! (IMO)
