Thanks for posting these pics Jag. Just funny on how all three pictures of the exact same new color look completely different. Waiting to see it in person and or other members posting there new Racing Yellow pictures

This yellow seems to work really well with the carbon flash / black contrast!

Jag,

From the photos you attached, the new Race yellow looks more lemon; the Velocity yellow more banana.

So funny, I was thinking the complete opposite!
But yes, each picture makes the yellow look so different.
Can't wait to see one in person.

Lighting differences create the various perspectives. The first pic is inside on the shade side of the car. The second pic is inside with sunshine hitting the car from the nearby windows. The third pic is in full sunlight.

2016 Corvette Racing Yellow. Orange Peel? I don't see no steekin' orange peel! Seriously, The finish is a vast improvement over earlier C7s. It was worth the wait.

That's a standard Euro plate that the car is designed to accept. The issuing country is identified on the Left.
That particular one is a novelty plate I used for the photo. You can Google POG MO THOIN for the translation.

After taking the pictures I drove about 10 miles on busy roads before I realized it was still on. ...luckily without incident.

Congratulations - Good Luck with it. When I picked the car up it was in a sea of cars with typical colors; Greys, silvers, silvery blue, silvery grey, etc.

The CR Yellow was shocking. At first I thought I made a big mistake, It seemed so dazzling. However, once it was on its own, the color really pops. I love it! I even got several thumbs up on the ride home.

Default Racing yellow paint code

Does anyone have the paint code for the new yellow? I can't find it anywhere on the Vette. Its not under the rear mat as some had posted in another thread.

Yellow Tintcoat code is GC6...
Question for those who've seen it or has that color....
Is it metallic?? Or pearlescent? Or what?

Wow, only one racing yellow picture? I guess the people buying them don't post here. Interesting.

GC6 is the feature order code. The paint code (for refinishing) is U 386A. Touch-up paint is WA-386A.

It is not metallic or pearlescent but it is BRIGHT! almost glows in the dark.
