Has anybody seen, or have a picture of a LRG with a CG stinger stripe?

Limerock Green Convertible with 3LT Kalahari interior at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Very nice.

This is how I'd do it if I could. Absolutely stunning!

I still need to get pictures in the sun. The green really pops in bright sunlight. But here is a picture I took yesterday.

I'm not a big fan of the color green especially on a car but I have to say this shade green on THIS car looks really great.

CM...did you "special order" the car or was it one from stock at the dealer? I am asking because my buddy wants to order the Brownstone interior on his C7 but he does not like the suede seat inserts & other suede appointments, can you get the Brownstone without the suede?

brownstone can be had with all leather seats, but there is still fake suede on the trim. you must buy the 3lt package to get brownstone.
the pseodo-suede is supposed to be easy to keep clean, not like real suede which may look great but wears and stains essily.

Saw one the other day on a lot in Riverhead, Long Island.
I LIKE it! Wonder how long it will be in production......
I guessing 2-3 years and then done. Like my A/O.

I ordered the car to my specifications - first time I've done that.

As stated, the Brownstone can be had without the micro-suede seat inserts, but the doors, console, and dash will be covered. I really like it a lot, but I think GM should allow for more choices for all of the interiors. Maybe they will in future years.

This color was my first choice. It seems to look even better without the chrome rims.

Here's a couple of shots taken under bright but hazy skies. Over the holidays, I used some Adam's products to get a really high-gloss shine on it.

Just got one yesterday. Cloudy and dreary in Dallas since I brought it home. Can't wait to see in in the sun.

I remember that car Dan. IF I was able to buy a C7 this year it would likely be a LRG premier convertible. However, it is not to be for a couple of years.

I personally love the LRG color and would have gotten one myself.

My mother has one on order and I believe it has just shipped, so I hope to get some pics of it here shortly.

2LT Z51, black wheels and black interior.
