New Carlisle Blue Corvette Spotted on Car Hauler


New Carlisle Blue Corvette Spotted on Car Hauler

Les Stanford Chevrolet of Dearborn, MI posted these photos Wednesday on the Corvette Forum which show a 2012 Corvette Grand Sport painted in Carlisle Blue. Having seen just the bumper cover at the Bash, I wondered how it would look on a full car. Check out the larger photos after the jump and then let us know what you think of the new blue 2012 Corvette.

Personally, I’m not much of a fan of pastel colors on automobiles and would agree with the forum member who described it as “My Little Pony” Blue. Now that you’ve seen it on a Corvette, what do you think about the new color?

  1. I love it. Reminds me of an Aston Martin Color.
    looks great on the Corvette. Can’t wait to see it live.

  2. I too am glad i got my Le Mans blue coupe. In fact, if I get another vette, if Le Mans blue isn’t available, I’ll have the car repainted. I get a ton of great comments on the color. People say they like it better than red and that the red sports car is so cliche. The blues GM has come out with since just aren’t that good. There are a few web sites that will tell you what the color of your car means. Interesting if taken with a grain of salt. Others tell you what the type of car means.

  3. Somewhat subdued I would say, but lighting can have a profound effect when evaluating a car’s colour. I am sure there are lighting conditions in which this colour “pops”.

  4. YUK! I can not believe somebody in design came up with this. The only way the color will last is if they shove the painted cars down the dealer throats. This may look better if the wheels were the chrome ones–sure does not look good with the gray. A vert with white interior and chrome wheels might get a different reaction from me. Maybe large white-walls would also help!

  5. Thanks, but NO thanks! That just looks terrible. I’d be afraid someone would laugh at me in that color.

  6. I’ll have to see it on a Convertible with Chrome Wheels to make a final judgment. Personally I love blue Corvettes as I have had 4 of them over the last 52 years.

  7. Speaking as an artist, any one thats orders a Corvette should be able to order any color they wish. This is the first true American sports car, GM has this ability to offer this, also the color is beautiful. P.S. The present design of the Corvette is a living aesthetic statement. Be careful with future design because the current design has reached a zenith

  8. Should have continued to offer the Jetstream Blue. I was ready to order a new one but now I’m not sure.
