The end of seventh generation Corvette production has us thinking back on the past six years. For this poll specifically, we are thinking about the 22 exterior colors that were available at some point throughout the C7’s life and which one is our favorite.
The question of best color depends on perspective; you can either take the colors on their own and say which shade is easiest on your eyes or you could consider which one you believe the C7 wears the best. These trains of thought can often lead to two completely different answers.
For me personally, it is pretty easy to boil it down to a top five but then things get kind of tricky. There is always old faithful: Torch Red. Then there are two low-production colors that I think are absolutely beautiful: Lime Rock Green (gone too soon!) and Black Rose. My favorite overall C7 color is probably Sebring Orange (it was Inferno Orange last generation). There is just something right about a bright orange ‘Vette but when I think about the color that shows best on the 2014-19 cars, I think that customers actually got it right this time around. Arctic White looks impeccable on the C7. The Black/Carbon Flash vents, wheels, mirrors carbon fiber roof and stinger stripe create a perfect contrast (especially when the Adrenaline Red interior and red calipers are thrown in for a splash of color).
Honorable mention to Ceramic Matrix Gray. I had been wanting the Corvette Team to introduce a Nardo Gray-type color for years but can’t help but think that they missed the mark a bit by going too light.
