I'm still not 100% sold on this color. I have seen it in person and wish they had added some metal flake to it.

That is one beautiful car!

Is that "Admiral Blue" going to replace the wonderful Laguna Blue color available on the 2016 cars?

Admiral Blue replaces Laguna (no Seca) Blue that was available 2015 - 2016.

Previous post edited to reflect the proper color of Laguna Blue.

The "Seca" was an accidental slip pertaining to a video game that my son had played a long time ago. LOL!

I will have to see one in person before I dream about ordering my own new car, but I still am partial to the Laguna Blue. Maybe the Admiral Blue will grow on me, eh?

You could paint a C7 a turd brown color and it's still going to look good.
:-)

The color combo in that first pic, with the exception of the seats, is absolutely my favorite for the C7. The only change I would make would be to have red in the interior.

Same here on the red interior. Wonder what it would look like with chrome wheels?

These are the closest ones I have; they really don't do a good job of showing what you're looking for.
