[GALLERY] Corvette Museum Offers New Comparison Photos of the Three New 2022 Exterior Colors

Last Thursday at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash Event, we watched as the covers were removed to reveal three new exterior colors for the 2022 Corvette. The new colors were displayed on rear fender panels and are called Hypersonic Gray (GA7), Amplify Orange Tintcoat (GC5), and Caffeine Brown Metallic (G48).

Staff members of the NCM took those new fenders over to the NCM Motorsports Park where there are a number of new 2021 Corvettes awaiting R8C Museum Delivery. Under a bright Kentucky sun, they held up those panels to the current exteriors to give us a great idea of how the new colors compare and contrast.

Caffeine and Zeus Bronze

Hypersonic Gray and Silver Flare

For me, the most interesting is Hypersonic Gray. If you take that panel by itself, it looks sort of like Silver Flare. But then when you put it next to Silver Flare, it has a nice gunmetal appearance to it.

For me, the most interesting is Hypersonic Gray. If you take that panel by itself, it looks sort of like Silver Flare. But then when you put it next to Silver Flare, it has a nice gunmetal appearance to it. In our highly unscientific poll we ran on Friday, we asked which of the three new colors is your favorite, and surprisingly, you told us that it’s Caffeine Metallic, followed by Hypersonic Gray and Amplify Orange. We also noticed that the largest percentage of respondents at 31% selected “one of the carryover colors” which tells us nearly 1 in 3 enthusiasts do not care for these new colors at all. Hopefully, these new comparisons will cause you to take another look.

  1. Not impressed with most of those cars. GM needs to improve significantly in the color department. Especially when it comes to the C8. The colors are not exciting enough for a car like the Corvette. Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, and Porsche all have sensational factory colors. What GM is offering color wise just isn’t up to par when compared to those manufacturers.

  2. If they could make a Matte version of the Amplify Orange Tintcoat, it would seriously hamper my decision to get a C8 in Red Mist.
