    I love the clean look of the non-Z51 car - especially with the SGM color. I so wish MRC wasn't tied to Z51. Certainly, that subject has been covered... The body colored nacelles and top are cool too!

      Thank you for starting this thread. I am also a fan of the monochromatic looks on the beautiful sculptured lines of the C8. We chose the body colored exterior accents, roof, and nacelles. There is a visual flow from front to rear without your eyes pausing to recognize the dark colored side vent or roof nacelles - it looks like it is in motion just sitting still.

      The twisty back roads of NH's Monadnock Region surrounding my hometown wait patiently for our Torch Red HTC, Z51 & MRC equipped (to smooth out the leftover Frost Heaves), to come cruising after a Springtime Museum Delivery. A 55 year dream come true.

        I am not getting a HTC (though I admire it greatly). I like the one entire color look of it. I also like the black roof and nacelles when the top is up (looks like a gorgeous McLaren HTC to me), and feel that way regardless of what color the rest of the body is.

        However the top is down, the black top on only the nacelles if not a black or dark colored car, is not my personal favorite look.

          It's nice seeing these pics for those of us that will be waiting. I just went through each color combination on the build site (again). Some colors, I like the body color nacelles and roof on the HTC. However, I really like the carbon flash nacelles and roof with my color choice - Blade Silver. I think someone mentioned on another thread that the lighter colors seemed to work better with the carbon flash. The great thing - we have A LOT of choices!

            Like the look of the HTC with body color top/nacelles. Looks exotic and at the same time it turns down some of the visual excess of the car.

            All pictures credit to the great and mysterious Corvette Nut.

            Still deciding between C8 and 992.

              The SGM would look terrific with Carbon flash painted wheels!

                I'm on the other side, I guess. I love the carbon flash on the nacelles. So much I'm going to emulate that on my coupe with black Xpel PPF.

                      Great look!
                      I detest black wheels but still trying to decide on the black vs body colored scoop.

                        I hear you Steve8, black wheels are just a no go for me ... so much so my friends always kid me about it. I like the black front and rear accents, but not the side scoop front blade as much. I'm tempted to get the "standard" black accent package and have the scoop blade painted to match the car later.

                          Nothing wrong with black wheels on others’ cars. Nice that we each get to choose.

                            Really nice...IMO the body color trim is a must on all colors. Your choice will be beautiful.

                              If you have the opportunity to look closely at the "blade" on the side of the car before you order, look carefully at the fit. on the pre-production cars at Carlisle and NCM, the gap where the trim piece meets the main body wasn't even, in two ways. The thickness of the gap varied from top to bottom, and the height of the trim piece relative to height of body wasn't consistent from top to bottom. I'm not sure "height" really conveys what I"m trying to describe. Imagine putting the car on it's side, and laying a ruler across the gap between the trim piece and the door. You'd expect the two pieces to be even, with neither higher than the other. On the cars I saw, that wasn't the case all the way around. The relative "height" of the trim piece varied from one end of the blade to the other. And it was much more obvious on the car with body colored trim than on the ones with black trim.

                              I don't know if this was just a pre-production issue, or if it's the way it will be.

                              Other than that, I really like the contrast between the black and body color on most colors.
