    • Because you can never have too many photos of Red Mist C8s....

      I drove up to Criswell today to pick up my splash guards, and they had TWO Red Mist C8s inside the service lane for PDI. One a 3LT coupe, one a 2LT HTC, both with black stripes and Torch Red two-tone interior. The first four pics are the coupe, which had been cleaned. The HTC had not yet been cleaned.

      One observation: this is the first time I've seen RM in person that wasn't outdoors in sunshine. A lot of GM's metallics look great in the sun, but really dull indoors or on a heavily overcast day. Lime Rock Green is a prime example, and the DSOM that I love does this to a lesser extent. Maybe it's the tintcoat, but I think RM looks really good even under this harsh indoor lighting. I couldn't be happier with my choice. These pics also show how much the color changes depending on the angle of the light. Very cool.

      BUT, if you want a color that's not going to be very common, this isn't it. 2 of 3 C8s they had undergoing PDI were Red Mist. Mike Furman told me that the week before the last shutdown, 25% of production was Red Mist. I'm going from one of the rarest C7 colors to one of (if not THE) most popular C8 color. C'est la vie. I buy what I like, and don't care what anyone else does or doesn't buy.

      Oh, and Mike said of all the colors GM has offered the C8 in, Red Mist is his favorite. I'm tempted to say that if I had ordered Sebring Orange, or Zeus Bronze, he would have said THAT was his favorite color, except that he bought Red Mist HTC for himself.

      The lighting wasn't good for getting a clean shot of how the AR works with the RM, but I personally think it looks good. In fact, I think it works better with RM than Torch Red. I almost wish I had gone with this combo now.

      • meyerweb. Thanks for the pics. I too think the Adrenalin Red two tone interior is very nice with the Red Mist. IMO, we should ask GM to remove the color override on that combination.

              • meyerweb thanks for the pictures, you are correct, just can’t get enough pics of that color! I would also like to say that you do an excellent job with your pics, capturing the car from various angles that really complement the car. Now the stripes are growing on me - looking at other pics without stripes after looking at those two cars make the others look plain. Although your comment about the adrenaline red interior now makes me regret not getting two tone seats with my 3LT black with red stitching interior 🙄.

                    Yes it is surprising that it requires a color override, since Red/Red has been one of the most popular Corvette color combinations throughout the generations (not 53s).---Bob

                        👍 Good choice and yes I went way over budget. I don't want to have any regrets. My car will look just like that one with chrome badges ( in case I decide to go with chrome or polished wheels). Black interior with red stitching and red seat belts. This car was at Kerbeck one day and it caught my eye

                          I agree Cobia. This photo below left an impression with me and that's why I will include the black seat/red stitch option on my request.

                            I seriously considered that interior option, but I couldn't personally justify the extra $3300 for the 3LT just to get black with red stitching. If that were available on the 2LT, I would have done it.

                              I would have been fine with 2lt myself but in the end went with the 3lt to get what I wanted. My plan from the get go was 2lt but some of the offerings just didn't appeal to "me". By no means are they bad just not my cup of tea. If I decided on a different color car I think I could have made 2lt work.

                                Same here, Sky Cool Grey / Two Tone was my second choice. I was going to go Back w/Red Stich but thought I could use the extra $3k for PPF and other stuff.
