Default GM - Can we get a vibrant green like SRT's Snakeskin Green or the new Stryker Green?

SRT just introduced a new color called Stryker Green which is a "souped up" version of the 2008 Snakeskin Green. It's incredible.

Quote:
SRT is claiming this new shade is an evolution of that iconic Snakeskin Green from 2008, but with more noticeable green and yellow elements for a "liquid mercury" appearance.

Love the Snakeskin Green on the vipers and the Synergy Green on the Camaro was pretty cool as well. Not that excited by the Lime Rock Green. What really would get me going on the new z06 is if they bring back Atomic Orange.

Atomic Orange looks dated at this point.

A vibrant green would be great to see. I wouldn't likely buy it, but I'd like to see it on the pallette.

The Corvette has some conservative colors. I'd like to see some bright exotic choices and different finishes. I realize 3 - 5 colors are the most common but a 100K flagship supercar should have a wide variety to choose from. Although I like AO, it's not a true orange. I'd like to see a bright orange, green and blue for a little flash for those that want it.

Corvette should take a playbook out from Lamborghini.

That looks amazing, and I wholeheartedly agree. GM needs to offer some flashy colors on this vehicle.

Yes!!!!!

The C7 looks so damn good in white. Just needs more depth than AW. BMW and Porsche have some very nice whites that look a little more high end and less work van.

Actually I think that the silver in your Avatar would look pretty damn nice. The Snakeskin green looks nice but a brighter red, or brighter blue might look better.

Pretty childish of the writer to refer to the new z06 as a "2 bit Chevrolet".... It's going to take more than green paint when our z06 puts the hurt on the Viper!

The new viper orange looks great too, Atomic orange just looked like rust to me, defiantly not orange. Not a fan, either of the greens used . Snakeskin green and the new green viper uses would look great, lime rock green is ugly IMO, just like Bowling green, fairwood green etc The only green that looked good was the polo green on the C4.

Just as childish to say "our Z06 is going to put a hurt" on the viper
I do think the Z is going to whip the current viper, but the viper is still a great looking car, that SRT handled poorly.
And remember , every time the viper gets beat by corvette, in current times(as the viper dominated for decades, something people like to forget) it came back right away with something new that beat corvette.
I'm not saying that is going to happen anymore, but if it does I wouldn't be surprised . Competition is good, especially when both are American cars.

Now they have to bring the price down and unlock the computer, I think this is the 1st time ever that the corvette looks more aggressive than the viper, the new Z's front end is wicked

I don't like the looks of the viper. It is as round as an egg. To many curves.
