[VIDEO] Rapid Blue 2020 Corvette Stingray Spotted Rolling Down the Highway


Looks like we got our first view at a 2020 Corvette Stingray painted in Rapid Blue (RPO GMO). The video comes from a truck driver who captured the mid-engine in Michigan.

I am really surprised how much I like the contrast between the lighter shade of blue and the black exterior trim and black wheels. We’ve seen the color described as Richard Petty Blue and I definitely see the resemblance there. But it does remind us a bit of the C5 version of Nassau Blue which was featured over the 1997-2000 model years.

The trucker calls it his first sighting of the C8 Corvette which makes us thinks in the Detroit area where Corvette sightings are a badge of honor. (Looking at you Detroit Bureau!)

The driver passes the 2020 Stingray and then allows him to come by him for one more view. As a parting shot, he says:

“That back do got a little Camaro look to it…”

  1. C’mon, call it what it is – smurf blue. Similar (but lighter) than the tension blue rally stripes on the fenders of the special edition watkins glen version of the c7.

  2. We use to call that color “French Blue” you would usually see it on small European cars. Defiantly NOT
    my first choice in a blue Without any metallic in it, the color looks dull. I have the 69 Le Mans blue and
    the 2014 Laguna Blue.

  3. I like that color. Seems the Mid-Engine car needs these “wilder” colors. Looks perfect for the car. That being said I sure would not pick this for our SUV.

  4. I don’t think it’s a very good color for the car. It’s “flat”, it dampens the car’s great lines. Make mine one of the “reds’.

  5. Never did like light blues. Elkhart Lake Blue is much better. But those black wheels aren’t helping the pizzaz factor that’s for sure. Two words for black wheels Bore and Ring.

  6. I spoke with a Chevy C8 Tech rep this morning and he said there isn’t a lot of metal flake in this color, it’s not like the Jet Stream blue.
