Default Bring Back Cyber Grey!

I think it is a shame the Chevy replaced Cyber Grey with Shark Grey. The reason almost every manufacturer offers a dark grey metallic is because it is such a rich looking and popular color. I have seen several Cyber Grey C7's parked next to Shark Grey C7's, and, IMO, the Shark Grey is totally non descriptive and blah compared to Cyber Grey. If Chevy wanted to do something really bold (for Chevy), they should offer both. But if they are going to offer only one, bring back Cyber Grey!

Sorry dude, my opinion, stay calm.

And ok, to be fair...not gold...taupe or pewter if you need accuracy, which might as well be a gold corvette to me.

This is not grey in the sun, no matter how you slice it.

Each to his own. I do think Cyber Grey was an awesome color though.

i'm busting chops about the AW, hence the rofl after. That's just my opinion as well.

Who says I'm not calm?

and gray, pewter, are not even in the same color family as taupe or gold? taupe has brown shades and gold is, well, gold... What in god's name are you talking about???

cyber gray was awesome and i was disappointed to find out they changed it with SG when i went to order, but SG is a great color in it's own right. I like the changes in color with different light...

My 15 is SG and gets tons of "I love that color" comments from friends and strangers. Like it better than BS (Blade Silver no BS) and not a full time job like the black 13 GS I had before the SG one.

I can settle this for you very easily. If you don't like shark gray and cyber gray isn't available...Blade Silver (I'm a little partial):

AGREED!

I loved CG on the C6Z's and I think it is one of the best colors on the C7 as well!

See grey above...taupe, pewter, and the bottom right 2 gold colors in palette next to the 2nd SG pic. Yes, that whole palette is all gold colors... as in, not made up by me, but other humans.

This is what the color looks like to me, add in the metallic flake look and looks even more light gold to me.








Hope that helps you figure it out.

I like 'em both , saw a shark grey z06 the other day in a dealer, beautiful car. Hard to find a color that a C7 comes in that doesn't look good on it. It is a surprising that white has overtaken red & black as the most popular color for C7's now a days. Then again today 1 out of 4 cars (approx) purchased are white according to the automotive paint industry, used to be black and silver were the most popular.
