Closest I can find tonight is this photoshopped StingRay, but it will give you a good idea as to whether you will like it.


There are real life versions out there of this combination for a StingRay out there. Maybe so done can help further.

Thanks for the photo elegant; u do provide a LOT of info/help on this forum and we really appreciate it

I've ordered a LB Z06 CONVERTIBLE (Order # in hand), w/black top and interior, and I'm torn between the standard red (safe color) and optional yellow calipers ??? Personal decision I know ... just looking for photos to help. I've ordered an A8 so between that and it being a convertible I've got a little time to decide ... but wanted to decide ASAP to avoid any discussions re possible price increases before I decide

I'm completely on the same page as Bob and Joel. When working with contrasting colors of various components (Accents) many get carried away and end up defeating the purpose. By adding more and more variations of different colors can actual distract the onlooker from other more important visuals more pleasing to the eye. As far as calipers go, is it really important to make the calipers the focal point by drawing the onlookers eyes to it? I say no.... In the case of the car being LB, either black or natural silver would be my choice of colors. If you've ever been to a car show and seen a car with every single conceivable engine in chrome, did it seem overwhelming and run together? And what about when polished billet first came.... There was always those that had to go overboard with it. Accenting is one thing, without becoming a distraction. Years ago I recall a magazine writer quoting my brother when discussing size (Cubic Inches) of engines I was building for the old "Mountain Motor" match race wars. It went something like this; "If Big Is Good And Bigger is Better, Then Too Much Ought To Be Just About Enough." Need to be careful with the caliper color with the Laguna Blue.....

I DO appreciate ALL input as this, in my mind, is Different than just "what is the best car color", to which the answer is always "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" / "get what YOU like". Of the many great colors available, I personally have been BACK & FORTH between VY, CR, and LB

I LOVED the LB Z06 convertible that debuted in NY, Including its Grey calipers, and have made LB my final selection ... I'm getting the Spectra Grey wheels and a black top, but NOT the Z07 package so the Grey calipers are not available to me ... now it's Red, Yellow, or Black calipers.

So ... working on this small detail just for "fun" (much like "black or chrome lug nuts"): "On a LB Z06 (non Z07) Convertible w/black top and Spectra Grey wheels ... the color brake caliper that (best) completes/compliments the "Z06 Look" is: _____________ ?"

Thanks Again!

Okay, I will bite with my personal opinion, with choice # 1, close choice #2 and a distant choice #3:

red, black, yellow.
