Curious..who would order this color...? and what matching interior color?

Black interior...?

IF so...why?

If not...why?

I'd have to say no.... IMO I think the orange, along with bright green, is a color more reserved for ricer-boys . . . IMO :beer

Unless Sunset Orange is a vibrant as this, I would say no.

I wouldn't buy one but I would admire someone else's if I saw it.

I prefer to be stealthier than the various "give me a ticket" colors allow you to be.

If it looks like the Lamborghini Diablo orange.... YES!!

If it looks like Chevy Hugger Orange.... YES!!!

Either of the above with pearl finish... YES!!

If it is a dark orange... NO WAY!!

Maybe.. if it looks good outside of web shots... But if it doesn't go with the Cashmere interior no way.. No more black interiors for me!

Why? So I am not the 20th Red Corvette at a meeting...:(

I have pretty much decided on LeMans Blue or Machine Siver with the Cashmere interior. But the final decision probably won't be made until I can place my order...

It's a color that appeals more to younger buyers than older and since the price of the c6 is going up. There won't be to many 20yr olds buying this color. Orange is not a 60,000 plus color. Look around.youth=bad taste.bad decisions and no money.Been there there done that.My 1st car was an orange vw super beatle.

Nope..

I love to drive around with the roof off. Had a Vette with a black interior, never again.

On second thought even if it came with an interior other than black I didnt care for it to much on the F-bodies.

Remember that awful teal-green-blue color of the early 90s? They slapped it on everything from Corvettes to the Australian-made Capri, and it was popular for like three months. I predict the same thing will happen to orange.

YES!!!

I do remember that color, it was on the ford t-turd turbo coupe also.

i said "Yes" but won't buy a new one for a long long time. i like C4's but later down the road i'd buy one :)

i've seen this color on a SS Camaro and a Trans Am WS6 and it looks real good! it's almost like the jpg Nick provided but i think it is 2 shades darker.

I actually liked the copper color that came out in 1994, but like the sunset orange, I wonder how hard it is to match.

The one in Slash's post looks great! A real head-turner. But I wouldn't personally buy one. I do like it.

Probably have to sell them here in Tennessee, especially closer you get to Knoxville. Wonder if you can get it with white strips and white interior?:D

If Orange was offered, I would love to have one. I have seen a couple C5's painted Orange, they look awesome.

I think the Sunset Orange with black interior will look great. Better than black on black, no...but better than a lot of other combinations.

Orange only looks good on orange juice. It's a good color for all of those rice burners from Japan. It might be good to look at for a couple of days, then it's off to Maaco.

I think you can check out the new Corvette orange/copper on the Caddy CTS of a year or two ago. I like it.

Ummmmm....

Sunset Orange, huh?

Y'all know there will be NO torch red-like color offered for the new '05 C6!!!! Not to be confused with Magnetic Red Metallic.

Corvette Copper was pretty sweet looking on the 53's (all 15 of them offered in that color).

Remember the C3 bodies in Ontario Orange? A little too Crayola Crayon for me< and that coming from me, a Quasar Blue Metallic C4 owner. But those C3s look good with a white drop-top and interior. And yeah, you'd have to be obsessive/compulsive to keep that white clean.

So this new Sunset Orange... Probably a beautiful color, but the interior combinations seem to be off. Black interior with orange just screams Halloween!!!! Then what's left? That tan interior? Would the car have that reversed look of a rotting cantalope?

What's that leave interior-wise?

Seems to me at $60-thou a pop for a base C6, there should be more choices. I wonder about GM sometimes...

I'm seriously considering Orange, but would have to see it in person, on a C6, in the sunlight, before ordering it.
