Default Dealer drive by: Sebring Orange Z06 vs DSOM Z06

Had to see SO for myself...Weird combo. Shark gray Accents, and red calipers with carbon fiber Stinger and ground effects was a bit much...even for an Orange Corvette.

I LOVE my DSOM, I feel like it is the best color for any c6 or c7! Taking it out when the sun is near setting WHEWWW that's the best. I am glad it is only avail for limited years so I have never passed the same color car.

Prefer DSOM. I have seen the new orange in person and I don’t think I could own one.

Both look good to me, tough choice if you had to pick one.

Same here..I just traded my Z51 DSOM..for a new LBR GS...it was a very hard decision to make, only saw 1 other DSOM here in Western NY. There never be a color again as great...hope thet revive this color in future ...too bad they/ factory dont offer custom/prior colors for a premium.

While I’m a firm believer in “to each his own”...and “love the one your with”...so, I would agree.

To each his/her own. I just have never liked the rusty oranges on any vehicle, but SO rang my bell enough to order one.

Like it has been mentioned many times before color is subjective and to each their own. Having said that, I personally couldn't have an orange car, especially here in TN. Given the choice of the two though, I would have to go with the darker one. The color just seems so much deeper and richer.
Just my .02 and by no means am I looking down on either, just not my cup of tea. I imagine some could not understand how I could get a blue one.

I definitely get why people like the new orange. But for me personally, DSOM is my favorite color the C7 has been produced in. It was my 1st choice color - although my "used with 1300 miles" Arctic White Z51 3LT 7M hasn't disappointed.

If I was a orange guy instead of a red guy I would go with Sebring Orange first as it is closer to Torch Red!

I agree with the mixing of the accent colors. I prefer a single primary color and a single accent color.

If the hood vent and side vents were Carbon Flash to match the spiltter and side skirts it would look better or have the Bare Carbon ground effects with the hood matching.

Sebring Orange does appears a little flat compared to DSOM.

The shark gray accents do not go well with the Sebring Orange, should have been carbon flash, also the calipers should have been black and not red

WOW.

I had zero interest in sebring orange before I saw this one.

With gray vents, that's a game changer. That looks amazing. Do you have more pictures?
