  • 2020 Mid Engine Yellow

    Could this be a new yellow for the ME for 2020? Tadge and many the rest of the Corvetteteam have heard in several large meetings/locations, from Corvette “yellow lovers,” who want a return to something bolder and brighter than the current Corvette Racing Yellow. Tadge specifically asked at the BASH this past spring, “how many would like Velocity Yellow?” Then he asked, “how many would like Millenium Yellow?” Of the yellow lovers, the response from the audience was lots of enthusiasm for a return to a brighter yellow.

    As GM often develops new colors, then uses that same paint formula/code for different brands, might we see this new yellow for 2020? My wife and I sure hope so. It is called...

    ​​SHOCK!

    I am not kidding, for it is really called “Shock,” and it pioneers on the 2019 Bolt. It’s paint code is: GKO. And for more punch, it is a metallic.

    Bring it one GM, please. Since typically Corvette colors have their own unique names, whart might you name it if it appears on the 2020 mid engine C8?

    Bright new colors are always fun and ive always been surprised sports cars like corvette dont have a yearly changeup of at least a few more bright hues.

    of course im a fan of torch red so i hope gm leaves that as is.

        All my sports cars have always been either yellow or blue. Most of them being yellow and I did make the mistake of getting black once but that will never happen again. Like you John I'm partial to the brighter yellows and this one would look great on the new ME!! JBsC6 you have no worries brother. You know Torch Red has been a staple in the Corvette line-up for decades so its not ever going anywhere. I'm willing to bet that its the most sold color over all the Corvette generations.

          Yeah I like that blue as well. Don't like them too dark or too bright. Right in between like this color looks really good.

            Black is not a color...it is a second job. No thank you. Yes, I love this shade of blue from Ford. I haven’t liked any of the blues used on vette since the C3s. You are right, they were either too dark, too light, or too purple-ish...

              Isn't that the truth!!! I will never own black ever again. My cars get driven not parked in a climate controlled museum. I do like the Admiral blue but like you said it still has some of the purple-ish tint to it.

                My current car is velocity yellow. Not so crazy about the Bolt color. "Jaundice yellow" maybe?

                  Maybe a color we need to see in person (like all picture representations). I am intrigued by it being a metallic.

                    I like the new yellow shown on the Bolt.

                    Millennium Yellow from the C5 (and a few C6s) continues to be my favorite yellow for the Corvette.

                      I would love to see the return of Millenium Yellow! Though clearly it would be re-named.

                        I was joking about the Bolt. It's difficult to see fine differences on color on a computer.

                        It needs to be classier than some "commercial" yellows I see around.

                          I doubt we will see a yellow one at the reveal. We collectively chose Torch Red and Candy Apple — not that there are going to be two reds.

                            I loved the Millennium Yellow as well. Was disappointed when the discontinued it. Hopefully they bring it back or something close to it.
