      To my eyes in person, it was very white. I will try to find out if it is actually that or something else. But again, I was told this car was a pre-production (actually the first one VIN 0001) car for testing and EPA standards, etc.

        Most likely Arctic White then as CMG is most definitely not very white.

          My apologies. Clicking on the pics on my desktop and the interior color is spot on.
          EPA test fleet explains no Z51. Better aero without spoilers. I think I heard GM is keeping vin 001 ... so options would not matter to them. Pretty monumental car to see in person.

                You actually are quite funny. Thank you

                The white c8 with the black /blue combo interior I really like and will be a nice addition to the museum as you suggest.

                  Not my suggestion. Kai Spande said at NCM that car, the first "saleable" C8 with VIN #1, was destined for GM's museum.

                        Interesting. I guess GM execs changed their mind about putting it in the museum. Or maybe that isn't this car, which is pre-production vin 0001.

                        Well, it'll be out of my price range anyway.

                          I do believe that this is the car since it is displayed by the other cars that Barrett-Jackson is showing for it's upcoming Scottsdale Auction. [click on image to see it full size]

                            there will likely be a DOZEN VIN# 00001's , since it only takes 1 other digit being changed to make it possible

                            the white blue combo looks good !

                            also there is always a VIN # 00001 auctioned off , and it hasnt been the car at the auction in some cases

                              The GM rep this morning said this is the car that will be auctioned. Also said it is Arctic White.

                                They just showed it briefly on the BJ Auction!

                                talked very positively about price/value and how it’s made many enthusiasts (of other cars) think twice.

                                Nice bit of promo for the C8!
