    To best see what the Twilight Blue will look like, it started in the 2013 Anniversary C6’s. Had a crush on it then! Still do.

      Does anyone know if any of the reveal cars had the blue int? And any photos of this interior NOT from the configurator?

          The Tension Blue looks great in photos, but when I've seen it in person on the C7 I don't like it at all. Too bright for me. But if you like the Rapid Blue paint, you might like this. I'd strongly suggest trying to see it in a C7 first, though. before ordering it.

            I’ve seen it in C7 GS special edition in person. The exterior was the dark gray metallic color.
            I like the 2 tone blue and the configurator looks similar. That said the GM folks said it was paired with the rapid blue and looks very good with the ELB which is my pick
            I've seen the configurator pics of natural dipped and I’ve seen that in person it’s a different look imo. I’m pretty much set on a Blue Blue C8 just hoping to see a real interior.

              This is the interior I’m getting with yellow stitching and accelerate yellow as long as it doesn’t turn out to have the green tint we’re seeing in renders. If it does have the green tint them I’m doing the same interior and stitching on Elkhart Lake Blue. Like everyone else stated it looks the same as what was offered on the C7 GS and after seeing it in person I immediately loved it.

                At our club’s all Corvette car show in June, with 170 cars, the “Best Interior Award” went to a 2017 Collector with the black/Tension Blue Interior.

                Bold yes, but the folks who voted, liked its boldness.

                  Pictures and renders just don’t do justice for that interior. When you see it for yourself it takes on a whole new personality and look. Most people wouldn’t consider a blue interior but I bet the majority would change their mind once they actually see it.

                      Great find! Is that the Shadow Gray Metallic?

                      Also, what's up with the window sill leather? Is it really badly worn or is that just some trick of the light?

                      Are other cool pics from that convoy of eight C8's?

                        Thanks for that I liked it in the collector edition and now that I’ve seen a “real” pic it confirms ,at least to my eye, it’s colors twilight and Tension IS same as the C7 edition. The configurator pic looks a little different then the real pic imo. GS7 and HTO .....
                        Can’t wait .......but I guess we are all waiting to some extent.

                          I believe that's SGM but it's a little sad to me that it's so hard to differentiate from black/dark grey in some lights. SGM can very easily look like plain grey.

                          Here is an example

                            THAT is much more what it looks like in real life than what shows up in the visualizer. Thanks for posting.

                              that window sill leather looks like it's a victom of some really strong tape, that was probably helping to cover it up for months.
