  • A+++ Silver C8 pictures

    Silver C8’s rock! They might climb from near last place in our current poll to first with these outstanding pictures thanks to quick04Z06.

    Wow, how sharp the line is at the outside top edge of the scoop. Maybe silver will become our C8’s color?

    That looks really good.

    I've had a couple of silver Corvettes, 68 and 07, and it's a nice color on a Corvette.

      Ooh La La that C8 is chiseled in Silver! I've have always loved silver cars. Silver hold ups better over time than almost every other color, hides dirt well and doesn't bake in the sun. I love it too, but my heart is with Torch Red. If only I could get more than one. Hum...his and hers!?

        Gotta love the silver. It looks good in this color and the interior looks nice with the two-tone seats.

              John, not to hijack this thread, but what happened to the pearlized white metallic the little "birdies" have been talking about for a few years now?

                          That started with a public conversation at the 2016 Bash when Chuck Valentini, BGA Body/Paint Mgr, in response to a question of why not Pearlized Metallic White now, he said, “we do not have that capability at this time, but when the paint shop is finished, we will have that capability.”

                          Maybe the separate-from-Corvette GM color division (yes there really is such a thing) decided we are not having it for 2020. Maybe 2021 or later?

                              John, I've seen that you've changed color, back to yellow! I too want yellow and although not totally satisfied with Accelerate Yellow Metallic (aka Dim Green Metallic), I'm going with it! It will be striking! I've had yellow on several previous cars and motorcycles. I was "constrained" out of Velocity Yellow Tintcoat for my 2015 C7 (delivered 4/1/15). I will not be denied this time! I wonder, however, if Chevrolet is second guessing on the color. To my knowledge, no one has seen a "live" rolling C8 in Accelerate Yellow! I know they've received a lot of push-back from reveal and internet input. Do you, or does anybody know, if Accelerate Yellow is a go?
