  • Six ME Interior Colors

    This interior color list has been hinted at below. Then last Friday NBVette4U shared with us what he presented as screen prints from his Canadian dealer’s Work Bench Connect software system.

    It is nice that the C7’s five Interior colors will be growing to six. More choices are always better.

    Here are the unofficial six interior colors choices we might well have.

    Jet Black

    Adrenaline Red

    Morello Red (pictured below)

    TwilightBLue/Tension Blue (discussed below)

    Sky Cool Gray (could this be the Carscoops pictured interior)

    Natural (believe to be a similar brown to Kalahari — though we do not know whether it would be lighter, the same, or darker than Kalahari)
    GBA Black; HTO Twilight/Tension interior; Z51 & Mag Ride; E60 lift; 5VM visible carbon fiber package; 5ZZ high wing; FA5 interior vis CF; ZZ3 engine appearance; 3LT; Q8T Spectra Gray Tridents; J6N Edge Red Calipers; SNG Edge Red Hashmarks; VQK Splash Guards; RCC Edge Red engine cover; VJR illuminated sill plates. Lifetime, annual contributors, and 23 year members of National Corvette Museum. Home is the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

    Morello Red was used in two special Cadillac models. It is a dark red, obviously replacing Spice Red.

      Is this Sky Cool Gray? What do you think? Or is this just a place holder color and is not anywhere near why Sky Cool Gray might be? We sure do not know know.

        We get a combination of a Tension Blue/Midnight Blue interior.

        Remember this Tension Blue from the 2017 Grand Sport Collector Model a few years ago when it debuted in Geneva?

        Here is the dark Midnight Blue (first seen on the 2013 50th Anniversary Edition (though also available the first few years of the C7).

                I don't think we will ever see the types of interiors they had in the 60s and 70s but I can dream. My 70 has bright blue and everything is blue.

                  The two tone blue and the morello red/black are nice ... I have the adrenaline red now which has a lot of black with it, I think it goes well with torch red/black top roadster. It will be fun to see if the rapid blue looks like nassau blue ... then the two tone blue interior would look nifty. Brad66 you are spot on with the 70 bright blue interior. I've always liked that look. I redyed a 1971 Trans Am interior I had years ago to that color. The 71 blue was not near as nice looking.

                        Morello Red your interior option (or maybe consideration)? I am definitely getting Morello Red, so started today to try and learn about its potential stitching. What do we know is, is that roughly comparable Spice Red’s stitching has been called by many as matching nicely, in that same family of dark reds. I was surprised to learn that as black seats have that cross between a light-light gray/off white stitching.

                        Anyway, while of course nothing is for sure at this point, but seeming likely that like the dark red stitching on Spice Red, it is probable that we would get a similar dark red stitching for the Morello.

                        The other proble extra cost stitching option colors of blue, yellow and Adrenaline Red are not candidates IMO for our car.

                        Here’s Morello, BTW, as it was in some 2017/2018 special edition Cadillacs.

                          Same although I could go for a really nice brown. Definitely nothing light, plumbers aren’t clean even when we think we’re clean!!!

                            I am disheartened by the lack of brown colors! I was not much of a fan of Kalahari but would totally enjoy a nice, rich dark brown interior.
