  • C8 Exterior Color: Red Mist

    GM provided Red Mist rendering. I talked with a major member of the Corvette team who described it is something like Magnetic Red Metallic II and Crystal Red Metallic. Of course we can’t wait to see it beyond a rendering, actually on a C8. But here’s a start.

    Can't wait to see that color in the wild. I am sure the actual color will be more exciting than the rendering.

      I too can't wait to see the actual color on the car, my question is will they have a matching interior trim color.

        That image looks very orangey. I don't think it will really look like that. OTOH, Tadge did describe it as "fiery." And if it is, I think I'll love it even more.

          Articles I've read describe it closer to crystal red, but not as dark as LBR.... I guess we'll see.

            But were those articles from people who've actually seen it, or just guessing? What I've seen so far, other than the rendering from GM, is just speculation. I don't think anyone outside GM and the paint manufacturer have actually seen it yet.

              1) "I guess we'll see" pretty much implies "we'll know when we see it"
              2) https://www.corvetteblogger.com/2020...021-corvettes/ - Keith has a good article on it



              3) paint chip



              have a good weekend.

                Would the words of the Corvette Color and Trim Manager Brett Golliff, which he shared with me 1-to-1 at the C8 “FirstDrive” event, be an acceptable source? However, to also have full disclosure, he did not tell me any specific words but used to previous Corvette deliciously exciting red colors and said that it was “within that range.” These are two colors I still have a crush on today. He did not use any of the words that auto media have to describe it.


                It is not at all like Torch Red.

                  Well I guess I'll miss it because my 2020 will be Long Beach Red Metallic Tint Coat

                    I could hardly ever tell from the internet photos but it looks cool.

                      LBR was our first choice for the 2020 but the metallic is too dark for our tastes. A brighter color for 21 looks to be the ticket!

                        My order is for LBR, but agree this rendering looks like a cross between Torch Red and Sebring Orange, hope not. I thought the new color was already being use by GM on other models?

                          Until I see the real thing, it is essentially Orange Mist for now. The color guy at GM might have a vision problem, making reds that are orange and yellows that are green. But if Orange Mist is like McLaren's Volcano Orange or Volcano Red or somewhere in between, I will definitely get it, as I think those are some of the best colors available today on any car. The description by Tadge and the fact that he is choosing this color for his personal car makes me hopeful.

                            Nope, we haven't seen this paint code used on any other GM cars. POSSIBLY another manufacturer has used it, assigning a different code to the same color. There's an aftermarket paint supplier that lists the GM paint code for this, but the tiny sample they show on their website is much darker than this, or than the rumored "candy apple red." Until we see the actual paint on a C8, we're doing nothing more than guess.
