    2018 BASH C7 Reveal Info

    This is the first of many posts over the next three days sharing what we have learned at the BASH re the 2018 Corvette changes. Officially the BASH starts tomorrow, but look what was found hiding around the back of the Museum, e.g, the Carbon 65 Edition in both a coupe and a convertible.

    Sitting in direct sunlight, Mike Furman, Keith Cornett (CorvetteBlogger), Ann and I, while standing next to them, discussed the nuances of the new Ceramic Gray Matrix color. Best collective summary is that it is halfway between Arctic White and GM's current pearlescent white found on 2017 Cadillacs and more. Just a tiny hint of gray to us. AND, it has some metallic to it.

    Judge for yourself, e.g. Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic (CMGM).

    Thanks to Mike Furman, we have the following interior close ups. Note the unique, exposed carbon fiber steering wheel only on this Carbon65 Edition.

    Thanks for posting and please continue with more. Glad I bought my Laguna Blue when I did. No second thoughts on the color.

    Do you mean you don't get the attachment to show, or you don't understand why they are doing an OEM blue caliper? 'Cause I can see the attachment fine.

    Can't see attachment. SRF page comes up with a "vbulletin message": "Invalid attachment specified..."
