  • Is the Z06 Yellow Different?

    GM has been known to change a Corvette color publicly without saying anything. As asked by “international blue” regarding these Corvette_Nut pictures, do you think it is a changed yellow? Or is it merely camera or monitor error/presentations?

    Do you think this yellow is the same Accelerate Yellow we have now had for three years or again is GM “hiding in plain sight?”

    Lighting and camera. In my opinion, I still see green under tones, but it's starting to grow on me 👍👍

      I am color defective so rarely see any green in AY (except under cloudy and low light conditions). However my artist wife sees it from a mile off and has exercised her color veto on it.

      I have been lobbying GM for three years now for a return to a pure yellow Shared my feelings, this time for the 2023 model year, again with three key Corvette team members at the Z06 reveal — to which of course not a one properly responded back. I talked to Tadge, Harlan and to Brent Golliff — Color and Trim Manager.

        Exactly the same as current color. I love AYM in photos, but in person in anything other than intense sunlight it is not an attractive color.

          I wish they'd bring back the '67 Sunfire Yellow......the only yellow on ANY car that I've seen in the flesh that doesn't make me wince (and not a hint of green) 😁

              I too want it back (first choice), but would happily have Competition Yellow or Velocity Yellow also.

                I have a 2020 accelerate yellow C8. I studied every photo available before I got the car. None really were close to the actual color. Fortunately the color of my car is awsome. and I love my C8.

                  Ditto, except 2021…

                  i was all set to get orange but at the last minute, literally, i changed my build to AY, without ever seeing one in person. I love the color, the way it changes in different lighting. I think its an exotic color to match an exotic looking car…

                    Whatever color we feel in our hearts is our right color of course. Irrelevant what others think about it.
