What color is your new Corvette Stingray? This could be the hardest question C8 fans may face while perusing Chevy’s 2020 Corvette online “Visualizer” and preorder site, which is currently the best place to spec out your dream machine until the model finally reaches dealerships in early 2020. If you’re dying to see the car in the flesh, a cross-country tour has kicked off, with the C8 making stops at more than 155 dealerships, as well as at the Concours d’Elegance of America, the Woodward Dream Cruise, and other big car shows in August.
There are a dozen colors to choose from and at least a half dozen interior options. In addition, there are three trim levels for the C8: 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT. Here is a closer look at the color options starting with the three new shades offered in the 2020 model: Accelerate Yellow, Rapid Blue, and Zeus Bronze. Returning colors include Artic White, Black, Blade Silver, Ceramic Matrix Gray, Elkhart Lake Blue, Long Beach Red, Sebring Orange, Shadow Gray, and Torch Red. The targa roof is available in matching body-color paint, transparent, or visible carbon fiber.
Once you settle on the best color for your new C8, there are four wheel options—Bright Silver Open Spoke, Carbon Flash Open Spoke, Spectra Gray Machined Trident Spoke, and Ultra Bright Trident Spoke—as well as two accessory wheels (Performance Pewter Open Spoke, Black Trident Spoke). To spice up your wheel wells, the brake calipers can be spec’d in Black, Bright Red, Edge Red, or Yellow.
There’s more fun to be had inside, where the interior can be outfitted in one of nine colorways: Adrenaline Red, Jet Black, Jet Black with Red (or Yellow) Stitching, Morello Red, Natural, Natural Dipped, Sky Cool Gray, and Two-Tone Blue. Additionally, there are four custom interior combinations: Jet Black with Gray seats, Jet Black with Red seats, Sky Cool Gray with Black seats, and Adrenaline Red with Black seats. Finally, there’s a sweet Carbon-Fiber Interior Trim Package if you prefer a darkened driver’s environment.
The seat options run from the least aggressive GT1 to GT2 and on to the hard-core Competition Sport, and they can be wrapped in leather, suede, or cloth. There’s a two-tone upholstery option, as well as six seatbelt color options (black, blue, tan, orange, red, and yellow).
If you go for the Z51 package—necessary to achieve the C8 Corvette’s mind-blowing zero-to-60-mph time—you’ll get a more aggressive front splitter and rear spoiler to help keep you grounded on the track. There are even more doodads and trim bits to labor over—we’ve already spent hours combing through them all.
