Default Official Lime Rock Green Metallic thread

To compliment the other official color threads, here's the Lime Rock Green Metallic version.

I decided to get a first-year C7 specifically because of this color, and I am not at all disappointed. It is very stunning, especially in bright sunlight. Although it also takes on a sinister quality when it's not popping.

And I think it's the best color for the Brownstone interior.

The only "down side" to this color for me is that I like it to look great, so I spend a lot more time making it look good than I did with my '09 Cyber Gray coupe.

Lime Rock Green looks awesome! I have yet to see the color in person. Is it brighter than the Polo Green Metallic that was offered on the C4s?

Those pictures were taken after a complete treatment at Adam's. See this thread. Now that it's done, it's fairly easy to keep it looking like that.

i am not fond of green cars.

I typically don't lock in on green cars but I'm smitten by this color. I can't seem to get enough of looking at it and, as you said, the Brownstone interior matches beautifully with it. As much as I love women, it would be a tough choice between looking at a C7 in this color combo or a beautiful woman standing near it. I'd probably wear my neck out.

Beautiful LRG C7's... absolutely nice & classy... and still sporty too!

A few pics I took from the Stingray Precision event - PBIR... a standard C7 still looks just as sharp in LRG.

I'm not buying a C7 right now but, if I were, it would be this color with the tan leather seating. What a classic combination. I'm glad GM decided to bring this back.

I love the roof line of the convertible. I wish GM would build the hi-po model as a fixed roof coupe with the convertible shape. Like they did with the C5 Z06.

I'm looking forward to seeing Lime Rock Green in person. The pictures look great.

I am conflicted about which top color would look best with a Brownstone int. on the convertible. I am not sure the Kalahari soft top would go well with the Brownstone. Maybe Black? It will not be up much so it might not matter.

I don't see many green cars, and the popularity seems to come and go, but on the C7 this looks amazing!
