    Default So I put my deposit down for a C7, now what color choice?

    I found the Nite Race blue to be dull from far away, I like yellow, but I think it will be black.
    Any suggestions?

    Nite Race Blue in full Sun lights up. Lots of metalflake on the 2013's that I have seen.

    If you don't want dull then I would go with the yellow and get the yellow stiching and chrome rims.

    Have fun building your car.

    Decisions! Decisions!I've always been partial to the dark reds and dark blues myself.

    Have fun making your choice and for Heaven's sake - share photos when you can!

    It took me at least 2 hours to decide between triple black and Cyber Gray with black top & interior. We actually had to leave for a while to think it over so we went out for coffee and came back to the dealership.

    We went with the triple black and after seeing it by itself yesterday (it had previously been bunched up with several other Corvettes) I was absolutely thrilled with our decision. Even my wife, who basically couldn't care less told me that after seeing the car by itself she was glad that I went with the black.

    I know they're hard to keep clean especially with all the pollen in the springtime, but I'll just take care of it like I did my previous vette. That stuff shows up on any color.

    Good luck with your decision - they're all beautiful so it's not going to be easy.

    I've viewed all the colors and to me the color that fits the C7 best is Crystal Red .

    The black is a great choice. I saw a ZL1 Camaro and the Z06 in the Cyber Grey and that also was great

    I hope they have new color choices for the 2015 Corvette.

    I think the dark colors look best on the C7. I'd go black or cyber grey, depending on how often you'll wash the car. The black look really good, but comes with the washing, swirl removing chores.
    There are times for thinking, and times for acting, but the art is in the balance

    I think that is an excellent choice. I have tried all of the colors at the Chevy.com site for 2014 Corvettes. What is the price of the step up from the base model ? But I my humble opinion I'd go with Cyber Gray. The black plastic parts seem to blend in good with the gray. I still like the magnetic red, as you can see, I have a very close to it.
