  • Red vs Edge Red caliper color

    For those of you that have seen the two red caliper colors in the flesh, how much more subdued is the edge red vs the red caliper ? My objective is to not have people's eyes focus on the calipers, rather I want they looking at the Spectra Gray Machined wheels and the lines of the car. The other option is to simply run with the black OE calipers. Decisions ....... Decisions (mumbles to self)

    They are considerably darker, but they will still draw the eye, as they'll be the boldest color in the wheel well. Based on your comments, I think the black is the way to go.

      The OE calipers were my first choice. Then I thought .......... Why not the edge red. I may save myself some bucks and go back to basics.

        The regular red calipers are a match for Torch Red, and have glossy paint.

        The Edge Red calipers are a pretty close match to Long Beach Red, and have a satin paint.



        Sssh, we have a crush on the Edge Red, especially as they will match the hashmarks we are getting, the standard valve covers and the optional Edge Red engine cover.

            Just my opinion but I’d have to see them myself before ordering anything except the factory black
            A thought if I might ...

              I am a sucker for bright red caliipers-have then on my 17 GS Conv. This time I am going with standard black-just to save on depreciation-as I anticipate a quick trade in on a future C8 GS. When I saw your build I was going to suggest the bright red, but thought it was not my place. Since you asked thought ok to make suggestion.

                  Then you better call Mike and switch to the Morello Red Interior and you can be engulfed in it. LOL Click image for larger version

                    The Edge Red is also an exact match for the color of the engine valve covers.....for those who are ****-retentive enough to care.

                      Pretty to have color matched calibers.

                      The morello red interior is quite striking in the photo...

                      i believe as nice as the c7 interior was the new c8 will be the final nail in the coffin to hearing the new auto journalist regurgitate ad nauseam how corvette interiors are inferior to the europeans...

                      first of all half if us dint give a sh t. And now the other half can enjoy full boat luxury, world class fantastic...

                      i traditionally prefer black interiors ...yet the color variants are quite powerful and striking.
