      GM generally includes the word "metallic" in the official paint names if they are metallic. For example, "Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic" and "Zeus Bronze Metallic" on the configurator. RB is just called "Rapid Blue," so I would assume it's not metallic.

          I had three initial choices picked out to choose from: Shadow Gray Metallic, Blade Silver and Matrix Gray. I configured each one the way I thought they looked best and still have equivalent goods on them to appeal to me. I still haven't made up my mind entirely but Blade Silver is in the lead with a Natural colored interior.

          I wonder if the natural dipped, which renders the dash in that color as well is too light? Getting the Natural with the corresponding black would make the dash black but I really enjoy the full Natural look.

            Shadow asked for someone to post shots comparing the body color vs. black vents on the rear. John asked me to move them here.

              Rapid blue is NOT a metallic. [No ambiguity or even one-millionth of ambiguity in that response.]

                Great posts all. Especially those of johnhd and ACE. Excellent thread contributions. This and are similar threads is what we envisioned when we created them, a collection of eventually hundreds of pictures helping all considering that color to decide whether it is the right color for them, and for all to show off their own cars once they start to arrive.

                NICE!

                  OK..... that settled it for me ( and the Warden)..... she likes Elkhart Lake Blue as it is close to her favorite color we've had, Laguna Blue .... will go with the light gray interior.

                  thanks,
                  Richard

                    Correct, Rapid Blue is a solid color with no metallic flake.

                    Perhaps the previously posted ELB cars photos should be deleted from this thread now that we have confirmation of what RB looks like ITW.

                        That looks perfect for Rapid Blue. Thank you jagamajajaran!

                            The two tone blue is the tension blue and dark blue interior (not black).

                              I'm usally not a fan of light blue colors. But Rapid blue looks really cool on the C8. Looks close to Mustangs Grabber Blue (which I'm not a fan of).

                                Rapid Blue and the two-blue interior were a key design match (per the top color specialist on the Corvette team), so if you like Paid Blue and want BOLD...
