    those base wheels look amazing! As does the RB. Think I just may put all the colors in a hat and just pick one....

      The whole car looks amazing! That rapid blue color is kinda like the yellow. Pics do not do it justice, in person that blue looks so much better than in photos.

          Not willing to spec a Z07 for the required price but if I did, I think such a race car look with the Z07 calls for a color like rapid blue

            Good Lord I love RB. There is a problem with it though...too many people are selecting it. I actually see many C8s in that color and, this is just me perhaps, it takes away from the specialness of the color. I think it's the final reason I'm going with AO. Not as many have it. But DAM that blue looks sooo good!

              I see too many red's. Around here I've see a bunch of reds, one white, one yellow, and one rapid blue. I hopped off the red train when I saw everyone picking red once the dealer tours started. I flipped to yellow for awhile, white back to red and after seeing this.....I think I just changed back to what I wanted when I heard of rapid blue before the SR was even revealed. I was at MM on Saturday to look at the adrenaline red dipped interior as I was back on the red train. They had a RB on the floor. Amazes me in the cloud color, sun, or inside. I think I'm going to RB again LOL

                Wish I was a little closer so I could spend more time there!

                  Rapid Blue is probably one of the nicest colours available on the C8. Hopefully it continues to do well enough GM keep it around long enough for me to get mine (although I am also partial to ceramic matrix with the full red interior, or the simply loud as hell Acceleration Yellow)

                    Subjectively, in my eyes, the RB would be tye best color for me if I was to order a Z06. I have had my RB SR for 5 months and I am still amazed.

                    I was on the fence between AY and RB, but my conclusion after having seen them in the wild was this:

                    AO looks best (in my opinion) best in the shade where it has a green-ish hue to it. In bright sunlight it seems not as rich as I want. In my eyes it looked faded in bright sunlight. That might just be me?

                    RB looks best in the sun, as the color will then turn bright. But it is rich enough not to look faded, just bright. In the shade it also looks good, but not like in direct sunlight.

                    Again, these are just my subjective observations. But if yiu have the same considerations, you should really see the two colors in bith shade and bright sunlight
                    Coupe, 1LT, Rapid Blue, orange seat belts and black interior. ETA Late 2021.

                    First mods: tinted windows, orange DIY stitching, orange 12 o clock stripe on steering wheel, orange EL-wire in the cabin, orange engine cover, orange painted grille protectors and orange led light in engine bay✌️😎

                        There is Rapid Blue one here at Road America, with carbon fiber wheels. Jordan Taylor drove it in. There are at least 4 here this weekend. A black one was on the track doing parade laps, a orange one in the media/participant parking lot, the blue one Taylor drove in, and a silver one in the Chevy display.
                        The greatest sound in the world is a Rolls Royce Merlin over 100 inches.

                        1LT, Elkhart Lake Blue, Adrenaline red seats, Torch red seat belts, Z51, FE4, Bright red brake calipers, Bright Silver 5-open spoke wheels, chrome emblems

                          My thoughts exactly. Numbers say about 6% are sold as RB. They must all be in the Panhandle of Florida.

                          My Z06 will also have the Amplify Orange.

                              I have a similar spec/optioned 21C8.

                              2LT w/edge red stripes

                              FYI! I’d sent a letter to the National Corvette Museum inquiring as to how many C8’s were manufactured with my exact spec/options, think it cost like $30.00, I received a letter back on their official letterhead indicating that mine is a 1 of 1 per my specs/options, which is great for my ego lol. I doubt it means anything else, nonetheless I thought it was cool.
