I gotta admit, the C7 looks great in all the colors, even white, but after going back and forth on about 4 color combos, silver has crept to the top for me. I think it displays the curves and angles the best, while contrasting the black details without being too overboard. So, lets see everyone's silver C7's!
This is the exact color combo I would do, but with either the solid color roof or visible carbon.

I had already "ordered" a Torch Red, w/black wheels and red calipers at the dealer.
But after lots of long nights, decided the silver shows the lines of the C7 better (IMHO) and
the yellow calipers w/black wheels really pop. Had the Stinger stripe installed by factory when built.

Love the silver! I stopped by Kerbeck's yesterday. They had about 50 stingrays, most waiting for their owners. One was silver. I decided then and there, that was the color again for me! It's like white but with an understated sleek, classy look and it appears right now, that not every stingray that you see on the road will be silver.

I also have Torch Red on order... I think I am changing it tomorrow to Blade Silver, Adrenalin Red, Black wheels, red calipers. I absolutely LOVE the Torch Red cars but worry they are too "in your face" for me and also the orange hue many report.

Blade silver with these options looks very aggressive but won't be the first car the police pick out on the street. It also shows the lines amazingly well!

The silver/kalahari looks fantastic. Much better than I pictured in my mind.

I set out to get a white one, but once i saw the silver i changed my mind. But then again I had a silver sl and a silver Z06, so maybe i'm just partial to the color.

I know you guys all like the black wheels and Z51, but as a girl that does not track the car, I wanted a different look. I love her and she gets a lot of nice comments, looks, photos, videos LOL. No problems and I am so happy with this car!

Silver looks fantastic on the C7. I'm surprised there aren't more photos in this post.
