Earlier today our friend Mike Furman sent us pics of the new Hypersonic Gray and Amplify Orange Corvettes that are now on display for this weekend’s Corvettes at Carlisle Show.

Now, we have our first look at the new Caffeine Metallic exterior which just showed up on another pre-production 2022 Corvette that will be shown over the weekend. We also have a quick walkaround video of the new color.

Of the three new colors, Caffeine Metallic is probably the most difficult to describe. It supposedly has the most metal flake of any metallic exterior ever offered on the Corvette and its color looks brown in the shade but changes significantly when displayed in the sun. It will be interesting to hear Corvette enthusiasts’ reactions to the new color and we are looking forward to checking it out for ourselves.

As you can see, there is a huge difference when the car is in the shade vs in the sun. Mike also sent a walk around video that you can see here:

  1. And yet another attempt to polish a turd. Sports cars should never be brown or pea soup green. Don’t the manufacturers pay attention to the poor take rates on these colors? To this day, the value of a beige or pewter Corvette is lowered significantly because of the color.

  2. The brown was ‘Last Choice” for 21, keep changing the shade and hoping the results will change. I wouldn’t bet on it. As the book says “All Corvettes are red, the rest are mistakes” I’ll stick with that.

  3. Looks like what I produce after a night of chili and beer. What were they thinking? How about some beautiful blue, red, silver and maybe white metallics that are unique to Corvette? Nothing like pulling up to a stop light in your shadow gray metallic C8 next to a Chevy pickup truck in the same color. C’mon man.

  4. Right now for me the best color on a new corvette is Elkhart lake blue . For me the best would be a color like Lime rock green 2014 .

  5. It’s just outright awful. Another mistake by GM. What sports car is brown? I can’t wait to see these sales numbers. Huge disappointment. It looks like poop and probably smells like poop.

  6. I have seen some cars that look pretty good in this color. The Corvette is not one of them. I am hoping that when the Z06 and beyond come out, there will be some “exotic car” colors available and exclusively for them. I don’t see this one being any more popular than the Zeus Bronze, although I did see one in the wild last week and it wasn’t bad. But the last thing I want to hear about my Corvette would be the color is “not bad”. Sort of like your wife asking how you like her new haircut and you say it’s…not bad.

  7. Brown in any hue is still brown and IMO is not complimentary on any Corvette regardless of generation. However, this particular shade is particularly offensive as it conjures up images of cesspool overflow. I can almost smell it from here. Terrible color.

  8. Brown, the 7th best selling car color in the U.S. What could go wrong? It will be gone in 1 model year.

  9. To boilerbob, my Shadow Gray Metallic C8 gets compliments everywhere I go. The color moves and sparkles in the different lights. FYI, not the same color as on a pickup truck. Also, I get the comment: “Nice to see a Corvette that isn’t Red, everyone has a Red Corvette!!”
    Just sayin’

  10. They got rid of Shadow Gray Metallica – which is a great shade of blue in most conditions – and replaced it with this. Someone at Chevy is into tacos, or something.

  11. I agree with Terry, Elkhart Lake Blue is one of the best colors on a Corvette. I do miss Laguna Blue. Caffeine Brown, not a fan. Rick Conti called it, meatloaf. That’s fairly accurate. When I see a brown car on the road I notice that it’s either a very old person driving, or a young person learning to drive in their first car.

  12. Didn’t mean to offend Art Fink. The Shadow Gray Metallic C8 is beautiful. Just hate seeing these colors on other GM vehicles. Bowling Green has its own paint shop so it would be easy to have colors unique to Corvette. Google 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Shadow Gray Metallic Color and you will see what I mean.

  13. What ever happened to the Chevy classic Marina Blue? Or Steel Cities Gray? Changing up color names every other year or so doesn’t equal innovation as a manufacturer. Keep working on more car for less money and leave this color drama to HGTV.
