As we continue to show off examples of the new 2016 options, here is one of the first production Corvettes to wear the new Long Beach Red. The new color just started production a couple weeks back and our friend Rick “Corvette” Conti at Coughlin Chevrolet was among the first dealers to get a Corvette Z06 with the new color.
As a color, Long Beach Red reminds us of previous dark reds in Corvettes history like Monterey Red and the 50th Anniversary Red from 2003. Conti put the new color up against a 2015 in Crystal Red Metallic and you can just how much darker the Long Beach Red is.

The new color is also available as one of the new design packages called “Spice Red” which we know will look sweet on a convertible with the new red convertible top as well.
The buyer of this Corvette Z06 Coupe also selected the visible carbon fiber roof, chrome wheels and the black stinger for the hood. All in all, the options look really good with the new color.
