Default Another look

I jumped into a ‘new’ 2017 GS today and took it home. I keep going back into the garage to take another look, I still can’t believe it’s mine.

This was a dealership’s custom paint showcar, less than 800 miles on it and never titled until today. It was just used in a couple of local car shows and lived in a Corvette only showroom for the past couple of years.

2LT, Z07, M7, with Brembo Ceramic Brakes, PDR, and other goodies. I had the same feeling when I brought my 50th AE C5 home over 3 years ago - but this car is just ‘WoW’.

Glad to be in the C7 club.


Arctic White w/custom wide orange painted stripe followed by silver. Custom paint on ground effects, mirrors, & spoiler. Kalahari and black interior.

I would have bet money your location would have said “Tennessee”, instead of Colorado.

Beautiful color combination.

The color scheme yes, I agree. But it will get an orange Broncos Country plate

Yes, yes, yes! I bought an A4 C5 just so my lady could drive it if she wanted to. She only drove it twice in 3 years and I regretted it big time. She gave me the green light for an M7 and I can’t get enough of it. Super awesome having a manual again.

Congrats, I believe that's the first time I've seen that paint/stripe color scheme. It's not easy coming up with a different look for a C7. Enjoy

I actually like it big time, but I would be afraid it would attract too much attention some of which could be negative from a jealous public.
