    Wow the frunk section is really different in this one. The battery is no longer exposed for us to see. I wonder if previous pictures were really really early preprod models.

    Otherwise fantastic pics! I can't wait for this car to start production.

        Not a fan of Brown. The resale of this color will be hard. Zeus Bronze , just a fancy name. Brown colors are historically poor resale cars. May be my opinion but based on 45 years in the Biz

            Having seen the Bronze on this car, and witnessed the wildly positive reaction to it from the huge crowd, I would respectfully disagree with your statement about resale; in general you're probably correct, but not on this car. In fact I would go so far as to say the 'gorgeous uniqueness' of this color on this car would probably resell in a heartbeat. Of course it will be a low sales number for Corvette (maybe) because so many want the usual colors...and that's fine. As we always say, to each their own.

            Personally, I'm a big fan of less common colors on 'special' cars. Back in the 60's I sold my spectacularly custom painted 64 coupe to the President of our local Corvette club...the color by 'Kosmoski House of Color in Minneapolis was almost exactly like Zeus and that car went on to wow thousands of folks and win many 'Best of Show' trophies.

              In the pictures with the exposed battery, the plastic covers had been removed. This is how they will look normally.

                I have to agree with George - this car is stunning in Bronze. It is not brown, but it looks like bronze metal - there must be a ton of flake in the paint. It is also one of three custom colors - you have to pay ectrs for it. I doubt you'll see many of them, but the ones they do make this color will instant collector cars.

                  Very classy color combination! Depending on the light source the shading seems to change the overall effect. But in sunlight it really pops!

                  Thanks for the great pics!

                    I find this to be a sophisticated color, and I think it looks great.

                    Most C8s will be red, white, black... I like the distinction of owning vehicles of unique and tasteful colors.

                      I (and perhaps you) gotta admit, even a certain secret agent (007) would fit in a car like this one.

                        I really like metallic paint colors, and own a C7 in a metallic color. I'm sure the Bronze looks fantastic in the sun. I need to see it in shade and on a cloudy day before I decide. Some of GM's metallics really change color in those conditions. My DSOM looks kind of brownish on a cloudy day, but the Lime Rock Green (which I love in the sun) gets kind of muddy under clouds.

                          Have you checked out all of the Zeus photos in the forum photo section? You can see several that are amazingly accurate based on what I saw at Road Of America yesterday. And I do believe it has quite a bit of metallic in it. Some of the photos even showed both sun and shade relatively accurately compared to real life.

                              Agree wholeheartedly,the uniqueness of this color especially on this body style will make it a limited edition like our Black Rose but an attention grabber everywhere. That’s the reason it’s our choice. There will be lots of the traditional colors around , but only one Zues Bronze wherever we go.
