Default Night Race Blue or Cyber Gray

I have a chance to change the exterior color. I'm planning on getting NRB but might still go with Cyber Gray. Has anyone personally seen the C7 in either one, or better yet, both of these colors? I would be interested in your opinions on how it looked first hand in these colors. It will be a Z51 with sliver wheels and Kalahari interior.

Thanks.

I haven't seen the car in person, but from pictures, Cyber Grey hands down

Both colors are great on the Stingray but of the two my choice would be Cyber Gray. It is an incredible color.

Did you see both in person? I saw Cyber Gray on a C6GS in person but it looked darker and more dull than the C7 CG photos. It was an overcast day.

I may be partial to CG anyway but I saw it at the NY Auto Show and it was incredible. That would be my choice.

Yes, I have seen both in person. I've seen all of the colors in person.

The CG is the exact color as on the C6. The NRB is the exact color as on the C6. Lighting always makes a difference but with these two metallics, it makes all the difference.

Look through this album. You will find my photos of the Cyber Gray from the reveal night.

Look through this album, you will find my photos from the NCM birthday bash and you'll see the NRB Geneva convertible.

Ive seen them both, and even being a fan of blue (my 05 was Lemans Blue), of the 2 I would go cyber grey. The NRB just didn't do it for me, its so dark is almost black. There needs to be some color separation from the 2.

Tough choice, but I would recommend trying to see them both in person. Also different colors respond differently in bright sunlight and dark cloudy days. Especially the metallic flake colors, It 's your car, your choice, go with your gut response...you will know it when you see it!

I've seen the NRB and for me it did not look good. From a distance I thought the car was black, a 'time for a carwash' black. Reminded me of flat black wheels with brake dust all over them. CG is the way to go, and you can choose all the same interior colors that would have matched well with the NRB. i've heard CG has some blue in it, so you may still get the mojo.

I've seen both and the NRB is very dark, it is the exact paint code of the Camero just a different name. Drive by your local chevy dealer. On the coupe it was very dark and lost a lot of the features of the C7.

But saw it in a convertible with a blue top and wow. The blue top made the paint look a lot bluer and you dont have the rear wheel vents.

Wouldn't do NRB on coupe but would do Conv.

I recommend that you go down to your local dealer and find an example of each color to ponder. I had the same quandary and that's how I resolved it. They are both great colors & I spent a good 45 minutes until I was sure. Good luck!

I have said this before but, I wish they would slightly brighten the NRB. It could be called Late Afternoon Race Blue.

I have to jump in and defend Night Race Blue... if for no other reason... it is what I have on order :-)

My Vettes have been black/black and this time it is NRB/Kalahari because I really like it... big change for me.

Anyway, all a matter of what you like best. GM'er tallied the first 100 orders he has been tracking. 14 were Cyber Gray, 11 were Night Race Blue.

OP
I understand your pain as I went through the same issue. I finally settled on CGM for car, but it was a flip of the coin as both are truly beautiful.

NRB, easy.

All the subtlety and modernism of Cyber Gray, minus the colorless, pedestrian sedan lineage of Accords and Camrys. Take Cyber Gray, saturate it and give it some complexity, and you end up with something like Night Race Blue.
