I've got my order in at Tom Jumper, right now its Magnetic Red, Champagne int, but I'm seriously considering the Lemans Blue, steel gray int. Both are beautiful colors. I'm just wondering if I might get tired of the blue after a year or so........ Tough choice.............. My sales person tells me I've got a couple of months before the order is pulled for production.

I am shocked at the number of votes for precision red. Although I am holding back a tiny bit of hope until I see it on the street, every indcation is that it has waaaaaay too much black in the color for me. It's like a red that is ashamed of being red, so it barely whispers red. It is almost a maroon.

One of the vette sales guys said that the red on the mattel 1:18 scale model is in fact a match. I have the model and have looked at the color in various daylight conditions. I am disappointed and I think many others will be too. I predict this will be a one year color so if you prize rarity above beauty, it may be the color for you, IMO.

I was just looking at the pictures of the precision red C6 on the link from the track in Germany. I agree with the folks who think they should have kept the torch red. The precision red is not exactly an eye-catcher, in fact it's a very drab color by comparison. I'm glad I chose Magnetic Red II......

You know, it just makes no sense to me how the folks at GM make decisions about which interior colors can paired with exterior colors. I really want steel gray with my magnetic red coupe, but its not available. If I chose precision red, then I could get it........ The gray would look so good with magnetic red..... My choices are black or that light tan color, neither of which I really care for.....

When you're spending $55,000 + on a car, it ought to be customer choice!

Over at the C5 Registry forum they are saying that GM has been listening to the feedback at the C6 showings to date and they will be replacing the color early in the first production year with a color more similar to, yet named different from Torche Red.

I am a bit skeptical. Given the long term purchasing commitments required in the Auto industry, this action would amaze me. This will be interesting to watch.

06-14-04, 08:43 PM
I think it is interesting how close the race between all of the colors is (except white). I guess they have a well-rounded diverse selection. However, if Torch Red were an option it might not be such a close race. :D

hi all:)
It's funny this would come up again, when i first purchased my vette i was a little leary of white as a color, "hard to keep clean etc" but I've found that its really not that much of a thing to deal with after all, black seems harder and red seems to attract more attention "police" ..yellow would be nice but too racy
If i was to choose ,I honestly would go with white again ,
just an opinion

Tammy,

Actually couldn't make up my mind between Lemans Blue and Magnetic Red, flipped coin and ordered Lemans Blue. On Thursday dealer called said I was next on the order list but Lemans Blue was still on constraint. Rather than wait I changed it to Magnetic Red with Steel Gray interior.

08-30-04, 07:27 AM
After seeing all the colors at Corvettes at Carlisle, I'd have to say, I'd probably go with either Red, Machine Silver, Daytona Sunset Orange or Magnetic Red Metallic.

In a way, I wish they came back with Spiral Gray Metallic for the 2005. This color is one of the best colors to ever come on a Corvette - especially when it's highlighted in the sun.

Last year, when I was at the factory, they had a couple Spiral Gray Metallic coupes pulled over to the side, and an engineer was inspecting the finish. They were pulled up right along side of the tour line that runs through the plant so I had a chance to see it up close. The depth of the paint due to the metallic flakes was incredible. Under artificial lights, the body panels looked like pools of sparkling water.

Rob, is the Lemans blue not any good?
It's ok if you like dark colors. I'm not crazy about dark colors on any car because I feel that they hide the lines of the car. On the other side of the spectrum, I'm not crazy about white because I feel it tends to wash out the lines of car.

That's why I like colors that are in between such as red, yellow, brighter metallics, etc.

08-30-04, 12:09 PM
I agree with the white. I fell in love with the Blue on the C5. The Spiral Metalic Gray was the best. I really like the Orange, but I need to see the cars in person in the sunlight before I make a final decesion.

See, I guess I'm exactly opposite of you in color preference, Rob. I love the darker colors. I'll willingly concede the point that compared to color choices like yellow, red, etc., they are a true PITA to keep clean- no arguments from the owner of black Z06. But when they are clean, waxed and polished, for me, darker colors like the deep blues, spiral grays or black are just more dramatic and have a real presence. I love they way those dark colors in a bright day look like pools with shine so deep it appears you dive into them.

Okay, that's getting a bit on the poetic license side. I'll stop now. But it goes to show that color choices for Corvettes are ultimately subjective. Give me a beautiful dark finish, and I'm happy! :cool

I am in complete agreement with you. I want to have a Red vette, interior and exterior, with a camel convert roof. For the price I am expected to pay I ought to be able to have that. But someone decided for me that I could only have a black top.??? They are going to have camel tops in production and so why must they (GM) have the assembler pick up the black top instead of the camel top? There is no sense to that.

The Magnetic Red C5's I've seen with black interior really look good. I think the C6 would look awesome with that color combination. The Black interior contrast, seems to bring the Magnetic Red to life. Your eye stays on the color, it dosn't drift to the interior.

I've seen the Precision Red in person, and it is probably the truest red I've ever seen on a car, very nice. However, if I were to chose red, it would be magnetic red. I've also seen the Sunset Orange in person, and it is a color that grows on me, but would not be something I would order. For me, the LeMans blue is the only choice. BEAUTIFUL color, especially in the sunlight right after washing/waxing (ok,so I'm biases because I just washed mine for the 3rd time in the week I've owned it and applied some wax as you dry to it this time too :) ) No, I don't think that is obsessive. 3 times a day is obsessive...

For some reason there is not a bad color except the pewter color that was a choice on the C5.

One of the worst colors for a vette is the old silver color because it looked old after a week.

It seems to me that the only shades shipped no matter what brand is black, silver and white from a KIA to a Mercedes. The answer is if it isn't a BMW or a Mercedes or any other high end car over $50,000 the only thing you are driving is a wanabee!

I'm guilty also and l'm still complaining.

Alan

p.s. Take this with a grain of salt!

The red would be my first choice and then the yellow and lastly the new blue.

10-30-04, 06:57 PM
Well, my second choice would be black and my third choice blue. However, my first choice would be a beautiful rich GREEN.....not too dark but not light green either-perhaps metallic. Maybe in "06?????? What happened GM? Is there a process problem with green in terms of quality control or was this just a demand forecast driven decision?

By the way....being an OLDGOAT I like things younger people might call nostalgic ( like 396's for example with no smog pumps blowing water straight out the tailpipes as you warm up ). Anyway, I was thinking about pinstrip accents on the curves above each wheel........maybe even accenting the bulge on the hood as well........

Perhaps GM will make the '06 Z a 396 instead of the 427 that everyone expects. Now that would be a retro love fest for sure........396 cubic inches and 400 hp.....sounds good to me.......For that matter while the OLDGOAT is lost in the past....why not 409 instead of 427? There's already a song about that motor!!!!!!!!

Please pardon the OLDGOAT's whimsical musings.......

Hi To All,
I first choice was Quicksilver Metalic woth Light Pewter int. Before I ordered my Vette, I saw an Electron Blue Metallic ith black int.. I fell for the blue but I refused to have a black int. Looking at the official GM site I saw the Light Oak and ordered that. In my humble opnion the EBM and LO are an awesome combo. I do not regret getting the EBM.
However, if my some miricle I was ordering a C6, gray on gray may be my choice. The orange does sound interesting.

After seeing a few in the 'glass' today, I really am drawn to the Millenium Yellow, whereas I had thought I'd get blue. I also see why Arctic White has such a low preference.

Polished wheels are a must on any color, but I am not sure that another shop won't do a better job than what I saw and for less.

2004-12-08

I ordered mine in September, they promised before Thanksgiving, didn't happen. They promised before Christmas...just got a call today, my Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic C6 Z51 6-Speed has been created! 1-2 weeks will find me in the driver's seat.

Ok now, I have to calm myself down. I can handle this. I'm giving up my 2000 Magnetic Red Metallic Z51 6-Speed, including my beautiful HRE wheels, but it's time.

I'll let you know how it goes. Course, winter in the Northeast will put a major damper on this situation. But just 1 ride (maybe 2) before I put 'er away 'till Spring.

By the way, pretty clever of those marketing types to put "Daytona" into the color name, isn't it?

2004-12-12
Today I cleaned out my C5, ready for giving away. It will be a sad day to see my beauty go. 12 CD's ejected from the player in the back, minor items stored in the compartments removed, vacuumed one last time so I can see it at it's best on the last day (was already sparkling under protective cover). Title and C6 contract sitting on the kitchen counter, ready...

2004-12-17
3pm is C6 pickup time today. I admired my C5 2K Coupe and it's beautiful HRE 540 wheels as I left it in the parking lot this morning at work. Last looks before trade-in this afternoon. Bank check is cut, title & reg for transfer all ready. 3 hours and 20 minutes to go...

2004-12-19
So I picked up my new C5 2 days ago but sadly put it away for the winter today (snow coming tonight). Simply put, this car is truly awesome.

With all the focus on environmentalism I'd think that GREEN would be a natural for the new Corvette. Green to remind everyone that the C6, while be one of the most powerful cars on the road, also delivers a very patriotic level of gas mileage.

So how about it GM.......why not a Green C6?

The OLDGOAT likes his greens.

I'm partial to Red, but I'm terrible about keeping it clean. I really like to looks of DSOM but they aren't selling well (at least in St. Louis). One dealer here has one in the showroom. I think it has been there 6 months! I really like the looks of Black too, but there is that cleaning problem again.

So, what is my final choice? Silver. On order - NCM delivery.

Black would be my color choice. Finally saw a convertible, at the auto show at the Hawaiian convention center. It was triple black, on a rotating pedestal. Let me just say that the design of the convertible is stunning in person, pictures simply don't do it justice. It is a small, stylish, elegant little car, and any doubts I had about the rear of the car vanished. The beauty of this car can really only be appreciated in person. Even the rear lights are beautiful, they look like rubies embedded in the bumper. In terms of stlye, this car is light years ahead of its lumpy predecessor. It's lean and tight and perfectly proportioned, and in the years to come will earn its rightful place among the best-designed corvettes. That said, there was a DSOM coupe at the show as well, and the color is even more dreadful in person than it is in pictures. While the car itself was really nice, I heard lots of people make comments along the lines of "I wouldn't get that color" or "too bad it's not black like the convertible." One woman even made a face.

I hope they bring Spiral Grey back - that's what I would choose. One of my neighbors has a Spiral Grey C5 and it is a really rich looking color.

Since it's not an option at the moment I picked LeMans Blue (it would be cool to see the 2 blues side-by-side).

I love black and think that's the best color, but I don't have time to keep it clean enough.

I just bought a mag red C6 - found a dealer who had a large variety of colors - I really wanted black (which the dealer had), but when I saw the mag red, it just caught me - I had to have it. And he had one with the black interior and two with the cashmere interior. Cashmere is nice - but the ebony provides a beautiful contrast with the red. Looking from the outside, the ebony makes the red brighter, and the red exterior makes the black interior even more beautiful. The key is in the contrast. Go with mag red and ebony - you'll never regret it!

this is just me but a true sports car should be red, but I like the Le Mans blue Metallic. I like the darker colors than the basic ones. The Daytona Orange looks really nice and grabs your attention. If I orded a C6 I would get Le Man blue metallic as mentioned, with black leather, and 1SA. Seeing as how the polished wheels don't seem to be as good as most people day, i would get the basic wheels and put on some aftermarket chrome ones. I like having everything stock and original on a car, but I that can only go so far with me. :eyerole

My 2005 C6 came with a "Monterey Red" 2006 paint color (special order). It looks fantastic! During the day it is slightly darker red with a deep metalic finish. At night it is a deep dark red. This color seems to really show off the lines much better.

The C6 yellow is "Velocity Yellow" not Millennium. I have not seen the two colors together to know the difference.

Actually the first of the C6's were still millineum yellow, they discontinued MY around May of this year and replaced it with Velocity Yellow, which has more green in the color. We were down at the assembly plant during the CAC cruisefest when they were in the middle of the switch over so we could compare the colors.

Personally I love the MY, don't think I would buy a new vette with the Velocity Yellow, just my .02 cents.

10-25-05, 02:48 PM
Interesting, I thought they discontinued MY right away. Sounds like the color my son put on his car, it hurts to look at it with the green coming through. I love my yellow and it sure stands out anywhere!

Has anyone found a site with all the colors so you can see the various reds of all the years together for instance. It's hard to know which is which when you see one.

RocketJ
10-27-05, 05:10 AM
[quote=Poodle] I love my yellow and it sure stands out anywhere!

Another side benefit of MY is the safety factor, you can see that color coming even in bad light situations. Now if I can only convince the deer population I'll be all set.

I wouldn't count MY out. Lets see how many of the new yellow they sell this year. I wouldn't be suprised to see it back at some point.

If I could afford the C6, I would buy the Precision Red. I've never owned a red sportscar, but there's always a first time.

I must admit that the only thing that really bothered me about Vettes in general were the pop up headlights. To me, it just killed the aerodynamic lines of the car. Then along came the C6 which made it seem like my dreams or wishes were coming true.

From what little I know about the C6, I really want one.
