      One of the two C8's presented at the Concours d'Elegance of America was finished in Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic. (Could they have made the name any longer? Sheesh. )

      There are several threads showing the car, including a video in addition to pics, e.g. here and here. Looks pretty sweet!

        For those that were at this event, in person, does this look like a pearl white or does it really look gray? All the pictures make it look white to me.

          Ceramic Matrix Gray isn't a new color and has been available on the C7 since 2018.

                This color is just cryin' out for the two tone blue interior with matching blue calipers. Guess we'll need to go aftermarket for the calipers.

                  This color still amazes me. It looks soooo good and shiny in some pictures, but in others is looks so flat almost like it's in old school grey primer.. The one... yes 1.... that ever saw in person at a dealership looked flat. It sold in less than a month before I had a chance to really look up close on a sunny day. The config always makes it look really shiny and an almost blueish tint to a more white color. Wonder if the new paint shop is doing something different or if the ones that really shine have protective film and a ceramic coating?

                    I saw someone driving a Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic in Naples, FL recently and it was stunning! Loved it...

                          I think it would be a great match with the sky cool gray interior (two tone of course) which is my favorite 2LT interior.

                          I think it is going into my Rapid blue, accelerate yellow, and black debate, after seeing it in person at concours.

                          I would really like to see rapid blue, yellow and black in person before I order/have to make My decision.

                            I went to the dark side during my seven different colors in seven days (now down to less than that), and was thinking black. Went to a Cars-n-Coffee last Saturday and there was a 19 mile C7 there. It was beyond glorious, and just stared at it. Then came in two more black C7’s. One was a C6; one was a couple years old. Both looked fantastic from 20’. But when I got up close, and one had literally been re-detailed, CQuartz’d by my professional detailer just the week before, every single rock scuff was still visible. Then an hour later the wind came up, dust all over, and even the 19 mile black C7, looked less than beautiful. With our doing lots of road trips, I quickly left black as a possible C8 color for us. We prefer driving to cleaning, e.g., bye bye black for us.

                              A friend called black “a second job”.
