It was nearly two weeks ago that we got our first look at the new Red Mist Metallic for the 2021 Corvettes thanks to our friends at the National Corvette Museum. And while the color looked pretty good on the Z51 Coupe, the sky was overcast and we didn’t really get to see how the metallic would sparkle in the bright sunshine.

Thanks to JVP on the Corvette Forum, our second look at Red Mist Metallic shows just how bright and shiny the color can get when the car is exposed to the sun.

JPV says the photos are “un-edited other than cropping, and blacking out some license plates (should be pretty obvious). I white-balanced some of the pics in this post and re-uploaded. Same images, just with tweaked WB.”

These first two were under an overcast sky:

Thanks JVP for sharing these images! Although the exposure settings may have been off on a couple of those photos, that bottom one I think captures Red Mist pretty well and we can see how some describe the color as “glowing from the inside” when that metallic is lit up. Unlike the Long Beach Red which can get very dark on overcast days, the Red Mist still manages to retain its shade of red remarkably well.

A friend of ours speculates that this is the preproduction 2021 Corvette that is being driven by Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter. Tadge has told everyone that he’s getting a Red Mist 2021 Corvette to drive and these parking lot pics show the car has a CTF sticker and there are other C8s in the background. While we aren’t for certain that it is Tadge’s car, there can’t be that many Red Mist Metallic CTF Corvettes driving around the Detroit area at this time.

Like what you see? Red Mist Metallic (GPH) is a premium tintcoat and it will add an additional $995 to the MSRP.

  1. I think it is a great change from LBR and strikes a nice balance between that and TR. we all know many will miss LBR. Like I’m going to miss Blade Silver.

  2. IMHO it looks very much like the C7’s “Christal Red Metalic Tint Coat”. I thought LBR was spectacular and agin IMO, the C8 looks much better in darker shades.

  3. I picked Red Mist Metallic for the color of my 2021 C8 when I placed my order. I think I made the right choice !1

  4. Damn nice color, my C5 was Torch Red, two C6’s one Jetstream Blue and my current 2011GS is Crystal Red met. Took me a year to find one in this color. It is a beauty.

  5. Magnetic Red has always been my favorite. I had to settle for Crystal Red Met. I think Red Mist will he close to Magnetic Red which is why it is my choice.
