    In the MY 2012 there was a different black to celebrate Chevy's 100 year anniversary- which I believe you may be referring to….called Carbon Flash Metallic. And yes, that's the same color on the hood vent, etc. on all C7's.

    Adding my $0.02 to all the color comments - I love the variety - I've owned (as best I can recollect the actual color names):

    1987 Dark Red
    2000 Dark Bowling Green
    2002 Magnetic Red
    2004 & 2005 LeMans Blue
    2008 & 2010 Jetstream Blue

    The one color I really wish GM had offered was *ONLY* used on the Pace Car for the Brickyard 400 one year (maybe 2008 or so) - it was a lighter green simply called Bowling Green Metallic - never offered in production……i thought it looked awesome on the C6 Z06.

    After many hours of indecision, I'm going with Torch Red on my new Stingray….

    My wife is a big Atomic Orange fan, but in its absence, we are going with NightRace Blue. My '13 C6 is Crystal Red. Torch Red and some sort of metallic Red seem to be a constant in the corvette world. I also had an Electron Blue '02, which was a 2 year color, replaced by Lemans Blue.

    One problem with AO is that it's fans, while rabid, are few. As mentioned in a post above, AO made up only 1.3% of production in 2013. Admittedly, those numbers are skewed by all the white with blue stripes 60th Anniversary models, but IMHO is still the reason AO is no longer available.

    Look at this image. I believe it has had some sort of filter used that kills / subdues red hues and leaves the color you see. I think it is a red car? For whatever reason I like it on first glance, but suspect it would look really weird in direct sunlight. Not a color I expect to see on the GM color palette any time soon.Name:  Odd color C-7.jpg

    Unless the photographer used Photoshop to desaturate the colors (as the grass is also a bizarre color) the filter is the light itself. The car is sitting under a mercury vapor or sodium vapor light. You can see it in the reflection in the paint. That is why the color looks odd. The camera is sensitive to color temperature and the artificial light of the street lamps affects the electronics of the camera (as is also does to traditional film). Provided my guess about the lighting condition is right, the car is probably crystal red metallic.

    Even the brake caliper is off color. (red too?) I think the grass is odd because of the snow that is falling.

    The C7 is a more exotic design than the C6 was... and Atomic Orange would be a GREAT color for the new car.

    Also a lot of younger buyers are looking at the C7 which tend to like the brighter colors.

    I'd love to see a C7 offered in Atomic Orange...



    Would also like to see a Bright Green offered...

    Curious since I may be getting NRB, do you think this color hides the lines of the car? Thanks

    I agree with orange, but disagree on Atomic Orange. I think its the previous one that needs to come back, Daytona Sunset metallic.

    Here's a quick 'shop I did.
