      I'm rally liking the rapid blue. Would look good with the tan interior.

              Thanks for the correction, I thought I clicked on RB in the visualizer early this morning. Anyone agree this is closer to C6 Jet Stream Blue or the old Nassau Blue? I just went to the visualizer again and the top color is coming up for Rapid Blue.

                  Nope. That first image is rapid blue direct from the Chevy website:

                    I've seen other cars in similar shades of blue (Mustang "Grabber" blue, Toyota "Blue Flame" (really, on a Toyota?)), and others. Haven't cared for them at all. But based on the photos, this looks pretty nice, and I think it's good fit for this car. Might have to consider it down the road.

                        The darker one is Elkhart Lake Blue, the lighter one Rapid Blue. The one posted by Richrat was a render done before the car was shown to the public, and isn't actually an available color.

                          i call it twitter blue and the two tone blue interior is the main reason it is our front runner with the yellow and yellow stitching 2nd. That 2 tone interior is wild and very eye catching. I had no intention nor did I ever consider the possibility of buying a blue C8.

                          Also I just noticed it is a premium color.

                            Here's a vid that shows Rapid Blue (looks similar to Ford's Grabber Blue ):
