Judging by internet posts, more than a few folks are wondering whether "Shark Gray," or TSG if you wish, is a vibrant, sparkly, alive color? Or, is it more like a "washed out gray?" One poster, "LOVES IT," while several, including folks who saw it in person at the Toronto Auto Show, are saying it looks like "primer gray."

Have almost 100 TSG pictures. About half show it as a very exciting color! However, in 1/3 of the pictures, TSG looks as if its needing more pop, that it is somewhat lifeless, more like a "faded" gray. The remaining 1/6 show it as a "tweener" -- between both extremes.

Most of the pictures that show it as a fantastic color, with lots of sparkle, were taken indoors, and most of these present it as a pretty dark gray, some almost as dark as Cyber Gray -- a color that many love. Yet, we know it is a far lighter color than Cyber Gray from the following picture -- which shows TSG in the foreground, CG in the background.


Disproportionately, many of the pictures which show it as being an "over-exposed, washed out" gray," were taken in direct sunlight. However, even some pictures present it as "needing life," were taken indoors. Most Corvettes are in the sun when being driven, and thus, several considering ordering that color for their 2015 Corvette, need reassurance that it will not look like it does in the following three pictures when in the sun.






We all hope that, even in direct sunlight, that it looks as beautiful, as alive, and as excitingly vibrant as it does in the following three pictures (and that all concerns are based on over-exposed, or "color tone erroneous" pictures)!






I know that one of our forum members who has seen it in person, posted that he and his wife really like it, in fact they like it better than both Blade Silver and Cyber Gray. We would all love to see Tiger Shark Gray outside, and come to the identical conclusion, to have it look as great as in this "tweener picture" -- even in direct sunlight.


Will the real Tiger Shark Gray please stand up?

You know, I like the last picture better than the next-to-last one. It will be great for those folks who like it as their personal choice. From what I have seen so far, I sure do like it!

This video was shot inside so it is hard to know what it will look like in direct light, but it sure looks good to me. Sounds pretty darn good as well!

I also seen the car in Toronto at the show. The grey is very neutral, half as light as the cyber grey. Very nice colour eh. :)

I'd own that car even it was actual primer. It'd still be the baddest car around ;)

The jury has returned, in the trial of whether TSG is "alive" or "dead." Their verdict was/is unanimous. This Z06 was at Emelia Island Concours d'Elegance.

According to the person who took these pictures, the pictures are pretty accurate, but understate much of its beauty, specifically how the car's metallic POPS in the sunlight.




Will post more pics later today in the official Tiger Shark Gray thread.

I suspect it will look something like a blade silver metallic with a very very good polish job. I had a Cyber Grey and opted for a Supersonic Blue when they came out because it popped just a bit more. Think there are the same differences between the 3 colors of tiger shark grey, cyber grey, and supersonic blue: each is a bit darker than the prior, but the same basic color, and they are all great! TSG looks like it might have a hint of Jade in it from the last picture.

Elegant...
Question and /or Opinion.
what do you think the TSG will look like with Red int. and the Carbon Flash stinger stripe & spoiler/Mirrors.

Thanks
