    Like that a lot. If I go with ELB and don't spring for the 3LT and two-tone blue, this would probably be it.

        I would have that pale color filthy in no time! I wear blue jeans almost all the time these days except for occasional business meetings. Summer time is shorts! I love all the glorious clothing in my closet but it's sitting in there doing nothing. Not to mention, I'm outgrowing it quickly!

          Maybe sky cool gray if one is using their C8 as a special occasions car, or has a fastidious lifestyle, and a darker interior if one uses it as a DD?

          And regarding the below GM print from the color and trim video, having seen sky cool in person, it looks very close to a white in which one put a few drop of gray into a color. Some folks at the reveal when seeing the doors open on that C8 were saying “oh, a white interior.

          IMO, this video screen print is more deceiving that it should be, so do not use it as your basis. Think an off-white with gray as its “off”.

            This first below one might is also darker than it appears in real life, so look at not the top one but the second one below as to what is most

            accurate to me - and to others there including Mike Furman.

              This is our first choice interior which would be in an ELB 2LT, or possibly 3LT with the "Bright" wheels, and likely full length silver stripes.

              We previously had the Laguna Blue with light Gray interior on our '16 Stingray, which GM Engineering bought back for the dreaded "WARBLE" noise........ they had us factory order a replacement and we chose a '17 GS but the Laguna Blue was no longer available and we didn't care for the Admiral Blue, so we went with a White car, red interior and black wheels combo. Although I really like how it turned out, we miss the blue.

              3LT Coupe, Z51 Torch Red with two toned Red/black interior. 5VM visible CF ground effects, Carbon Flash wheels, engine appearance package and Carbon Fiber interior trim. Mag Ride control. Red Calipers. VQK Splash Guards. Carbon flash mirrors and spoiler.

                    I was hoping it would look as white as these pics, but it definately looks like a light gray in person. At least the one (in this pic) at the corvette museum did.

                    another thing the head rest should be black, I asked one of the guys there, if this is how the 2 toned seats would be because the configurator has them black, he was unsure and noted this was probably wrong. He suggested checking with an online concierge to be sure.

                    AND a quick side note, Only 2 cars had the stitching ligned up where the center counsel meets the dash. The 2 tone blue and the natural dipped. The rest looked like this.

                      All of those cars at NCM are pre-production, and may not reflect the final configuration of production cars. OTOH, the visualizer may not be correct, either. There have been a number of changes since it first appeared to correct errors.

                      I suspect the stitching issue is related to the pre-production status, too.

                        I actually saw the picture with the grey headrest and said the exact opposite (not being rude btw). I actually think the 2-tone should have a grey headrest not the black that you see in the visualizer (that way the grey surrounds the black), just my opinion. I keep going back and forth between 3 interiors (All Sky Cool Grey, 2-tone (if it has the grey headrest and black center) and the 2-tone blue....all these choices are driving me crazy LOL

                        Cars 1973 Camaro RS RestoMod (LSX454) if I ever finish, 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT (was my Dad's car, lots of sentimental meaning), 2012 Hennessey HPE600 Camaro Convertible, 2017 Camaro 50th Anniversary Convertible and I am looking forward to my first Corvette C8, just in time for my 50th.

                          I am curious if anyone knows why the Sky Cool Grey interior steering wheel doesn't include a "Grey" stripe at the top of the steering wheel like the other color options do?

                            I also believe the 2-tone Sky Cool Gray interior looks far better with a gray headrest for the same reason the 2-tone blue interior looks better with the lighter blue headrest. IMO the black seat and backrest surfaces hide the perferations better than the gray and give the seat a much cleaner appearance than the all gray seat. The perforations do not have the same effect on the darker seat colors. In terms of keeping the gray seats clean, I have had light colored leather seats, including essentially white leather, in previous cars that I kept for >10 years and have not found them to be significantly more difficult to keep clean than darker colors even in daily use with multiple kids and dogs. I will not buy the 2-tone gray interior if I cannot get the gray headrests.

                              I tend to always get too dirty so a light colored seat for me is out of the question. The lightest I have is my C4 with the blue slate seats. Blue slate is not a light color. Everything else is all black. Always amazed by how much dirt comes off the seats when I clean them.... but you just don't see it on the black.
