[QUOTE=ICU2TV;1596996687] [/QU



When the Bowling Green Assembly Plant closed at the end of July, it officially marked the end of Black Rose Metallic as an exterior color for the 2018 model year Corvette. The color was a throwback to the exterior of the same name that was offered from 1992-1994 C4 Corvettes.


Black Rose Metallic returned in 2017 for the C7 Corvette and it was very well received by Corvette enthusiasts looking to break away from the traditional Black/Red/White exteriors.

Now that production has ended, we reached out to our friends on the Corvette Team who offered up these final production statistics for the color.

For 2018, a total of 219 Corvettes were painted Black Rose Metallic and they break down to a total of 165 Coupes and 54 Convertibles. As of the close of the Corvette Assembly Plant in July, a total of 6,469 Corvettes were built for 2018 and Black Rose represents 3.38% of that production. That percentage will drop once 2018 Corvette production resumes in November.

Hereís Black Rose Metallicís production statistics for 2017-2018 Corvettes:

Year Stingray GrandSport Z06 Total
2017 544 465 324 1,333
2018 92 78 49 219

Totals 636 543 373 1,552

While I wouldn't buy that color, I do really like it (I've had three yellow Vettes in a row now) - striking, especially on sunny days. Looks subdued and distinctive when it's darker as well. It's great we have several color options to choose from!

Beautiful car! Enjoy it.

Great looking Vette, surprised the color itself was not more popular.

Not sure but I think its the way they want it, a rear color. Pictures really don't do this color and car no justice I've noticed. I park it at work so I could see it. It changes color all day long with the sun going up and down. I got people all day telling me the color is so cool. Not that I care what people think.

I'd say it would still look pretty badass sitting next to my C8 and C9 if I live that long.
