Went to dealer several months ago to initiate getting a new car. I currently have a 2015 C7Z in Velocity Yellow (VY). Previously had a C6Z in VY and a C5 in Millenium Yellow. Three yellow vettes in a row.

In other words, I only buy yellow. Saw the Racing Yellow on a 2016 C7Z and was extremely disappointed. No way was I going to buy a Racing Yellow car.

I feel it's terrible. It's pale/pastel and faded/washed out. In MY opinion it's really bad. Looks like an old washed out and faded Mustang yellow. There is no POP to it. Looks slightly better in the sun but even then it's pale and sucks.

It really depressed as I just loved the prior yellows and would own no other color. I ordered a 2017 C7Z Torch Red. Not what I wanted but I knew I'd regret a Racing Yellow every time I looked at it. Hell, even the Corvette Race team doesn't run the Racing Yellow on the C7R's. They stuck with VY.

I can't believe they would choose this shade of yellow. Atrocious.

PLEASE note I'm not trying to start a color fight I'm just sharing MY thoughts. Really, really sucks.

To each his own.... that's why Baskin Robbins has 31 flavors....
I never wanted a yellow car, but I ended up with a 2015 Mustang in Yellow / Black and loved the pop from the black on the yellow... all of a sudden I was really digging it... after so many issues with the Ford. I traded into the Corvette in the same colors... I really love it... Some people love it some don't...

Thanks 17GS !

I'm kind of in your camp, had a corvette yellow 92, my 2002, and now a vy 2010 GS Vert. Thought I would run through this thread to see if my opinion would change. I wouldn't go so far as to say it sucks, but I am disappointed as well. I'm now looking at Blue. To each their own.

I have one like the one roped off, except I have the chrome wheels with black interior & Yellow stitching. Not sure how to post photos. Waiting for warm weather to drive. Only 28 miles and I've had it a month now.

Only 4 pages representing the only proper color to get a Corvette in? Amazing you see so few considering this is the color they race in and are known for. I wasn't none too happy having to pay extra for it, which probably doesn't help, but it just seemed right.

A special car delivered on a special day... January 20th! #maga (Kind of ironic though... My Chevy sitting on Ford Island!)
