Too bad it's being retired for now!

Sometimes I wish my C7 was Cyber Gray!

That is too dark for me. If my grey was that dark, I would just buy black. A little lighter and I think it would be pretty nice.

What's really hard to capture about this color is it has blue/violet metallic in the paint. It can look dark in low light then be a bright gray in direct sunlight. You really have to see it in person in direct sunlight. You can see the first shot the blue hue the car has.

The cyber gray is a beautiful color and I agree it is too bad they are not offering it for 2015. Hopefully the new shade if gray will look good on te car.

The color has several different attitudes depending on the lighting.

In full light, the grey is actually quite a light shade, and gives off hues of blue, and violet. Indirect or weak sunlight (like sunset) bring out a gold/brown color in the grey. On an overcast day, the grey is a flat, uniform grey and at night, its a charcoal color.

Probably not for everyone - but it's definitely one of the colors I like on the C7.

I love my CGM Stingray. I went from a black 2014 Shelby GT 500 to this car. I thought I might want a black Stingray too but when I saw one in person to me I got the impression the black hid the gorgeous lines. CGM is dark but as others point out the metal flakes really give it depth and variety and shows off the body lines well. When I first got a close up look at a CGM Vette I just had to have one so I ordered one.

Just as in every option the color isn't for every one but many will be dissappointed to not have the option to order one anymore. I'm thrilled I got mine.

Last summer at Carlisle I picked my color. The final choice was between Cyber Gray and Night Race Blue. I went with NRB.

agreed with all above. . .such a cool color. . .definitely different in different lights as you can see in this pic. . .but in person it's just classy and menacing all at once. . .couldn't be happier. it's a shame that there were issues which they had which made them discontinue it (from what i heard-trouble blending different body panels etc)
